In 2011 TAM will be 30 years old. During its lifetime TAM has designed and produced almost every type of mobile military lightweight shelter, using a self-produced, professional, glued, self-supporting sandwich system. All delivered shelters are still in good condition and except for a few ruined in accidents.
Our sandwich system is very strong, has good insulation and low weight and is a self-supporting building material which does not need internal or external stiffeners or corrugation. Our sandwich system is not affected by humidity or fungus and does not age. A quality sandwich-shelter has no maintenance costs except for moving parts and paint when needed. The official life time of our shelters is estimated at over 25 years. Our sandwich panels are produced individualy. The thickness and material on inner and outer skin as well as the core material is variables to meet the demands for strength and insulation.
