CCS structures have been modelled to withstand a very high distributed compressive load, enabling berming by sandbags, local fill material or snow. This gives the shelters excellent thermal properties and can provide protection against shrapnel, blasts and small arms fire. The above shows a CCS25 buried using a cellular geo-textile product to provide force protection. The fill can then be capped using Concrete Cloth to prevent wash-out and further improve protection.
CCS structures are designed as part of a modular system; units can be easily docked together enabling the space to be tailored to the application. CCS is designed as a generic structure with initial uses as accommodation, field offices, and for secure storage. Future product developments include specialist medical variants and much larger shelters which could be used for applications such as storage of vehicles and helicopters.
