Euro-Shelter, subsidiary of GIAT Industries’ NEXTER group, has 30 years’ solid experience in the design and manufacture of technical shelters for a wide range of civilian and military applications.
Euro-Shelter designs are enhanced by unprecedented operational feedback within the sector, and our tactical, logistics and medical shelters are used worldwide.
TURNKEY MILITARY SHELTER MANUFACTURE
Constantly aiming to improve research and development in relation to materials, designs and processes, Euro-Shelter manages its entire production cycle, thereby ensuring total product monitoring. Our industrial practices and methods cover the entire production cycle, especially sandwich-panel manufacturing, continuous welding of thin aluminium sheets, and sanding and painting of workshops in the factory.
Euro-Shelter military tactical shelters are light, robust and mobile, providing complete protection for personnel thanks to onboard protective equipment against the dangers of the battlefield, including:
- Climatic protection (extreme environments: temperatures, winds, snow, ice or sand)
- Mechanical protection (all methods of transport: road or off-road, maritime and particularly air transport)
- Protection against purely military environments (EMI, EMC, electromagnetic pulse, blast and nuclear thermal flash)
COMMAND AND CONTROL TACTICAL SHELTERS
Tactical shelters are shelters operating as close as possible or directly at the frontline, providing assistance for contacting forces (e.g. communication and information systems). The main use for our shelters is in the C4I sector: command and control, communication, computers and tactical information.
Euro-Shelter products, generally built with aluminium sandwich panels continuously welded on an aluminium frame (to reach the best EMC performances), have become one of the main mobile structures for hosting electronics for use on the battlefield. They have a significant place in military communication, command, coordination, radar, electronic war, cartography, mobile detection laboratories, CBRN decontamination, satcom systems, etc.
LOGISTICS AND SUPPORT MILITARY SHELTERS
The development of expeditionary forces, and their reinforced participation in peacekeeping operations on external theatres, has led shelters to be used in the various support functions required for the successful completion of missions with reduced personnel.
This support must be provided for personnel (supply chains, orderliness and accommodation) and logistics (technical support, repair and testing).
MOBILE KITCHENS, LAUNDRIES, WORKSHOPS AND SIMULATORS
In this segment, Euro-Shelter has already delivered equipment such as mobile laundries, mobile kitchens, mobile workshops, mobile simulators, shelters for the storage of parachutes under controlled environmental conditions (temperature and hygrometry), and technical pressurised containers for big and heavy spare parts (for example for armoured vehicles).
MOBILE MEDICAL SHELTERS, HOSPITALS AND CLINICS
Mobile medical facilities in the military sector consist of reproducing, through networked shelters, contact zones and high-performance medical infrastructures that allow injured people to be treated with optimum speed and efficiency. Euro-Shelter mobile hospitals and mobile clinics are also used to benefit civilian populations.
As a leader in the sector of mobile medical systems, Euro-Shelter can offer a multitude of configurations and functions in this sector.
MODULAR AND AUTONOMOUS MOBILE HOSPITALS
Euro-Shelter mobile hospitals are modular and autonomous: they can be operational within two hours after arriving at the operation theatre and are equipped with the most modern technical resources, allowing medical and surgical teams to practice within a technical core at the same level as infrastructure hospitals.
MOBILE SANITARY UNITS
Euro-Shelter mobile clinics are highly mobile sanitary units providing coordinate care to the most enclosed populations. They are used for public-health initiatives, including tackling major epidemics, fighting AIDS, and emergency assistance for displaced persons.
