From delivery, the shelters can be installed and ready for use in 24 hours.

WHAT IS THIS MATERIAL?
The material that makes these structures so durable is a flexible, concrete impregnated construction material that hardens when hydrated to form a thin, durable, water proof and fire resistant concrete layer. The material allows concrete construction without the need for plant or mixing equipment. Simply position the concrete impregnated construction material and just add water. Learn more about Combat Concrete GCCM material by viewing our Case Studies and our Combat Concrete GCCM product page.
COMBAT CONCRETE SHELTERS
Combat Concrete Shelters (CCS) are constructed from concrete impregnated construction materials, bonded to the outer surface of a plastic inner which forms a Nissen-Hut shaped structure once inflated, with steel security doors at both ends. They serve as rapidly deployable hardened shelters that require only water and air for construction. The key to CCS is the use of inflation to create a surface that is optimized for compressive loading. This allows thin walled concrete structures to be formed which are both robust and lightweight. Learn more by visiting our Combat Concrete Shelter product page and FAQs.
THE BENEFITS OF CCS
The shelter is delivered folded and sealed in an air-tight sack.
The shelter is inflated using the electric fan provided.
Water is sprayed onto the shelter until the surface is saturated.
Only 24 hours later, the concrete shelter is cured and ready for use.
The hard concrete shell is ceramic and will not burn, providing a level of security not possible with soft-shell structures.
Both robust and lightweight, these structures are capable of compressive loading and equipped with two steel security doors.
The sealed, plastic inner allows for a sterile environment, vastly increasing front-line medical capabilities.
The shelter provides exceptional environmental protection compared to a soft-shell structure.
The shelter uses an efficient shell structure, requiring only a fraction of the materials needed for conventional buildings.
The strength and durability of the concrete structure allows it to last over 10 years.
The shelters can be docked together, expanding the space to meet operational needs.
Can be fitted with a forced air/inflation unit and decontamination module to provide CBRN (chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear) protection.
