The ECOS is a new shelter system based on expansion of a 20ft or 40ft freight container measuring up to 300m² of roofed area. The principle of this patented solution is horizontal tilting of frames at both long sides of the container.
After tilting of main and supporting frames, separate halls at both sides of the container are made, together with an empty container creating three separate spaces. While the container itself shall be used as a communication corridor, the halls are supposed to work as an accommodation space, an ambulance, briefing hall, canteen, warehouse, etc.
The roof of ECOS shelter is based on inflatable high-pressure NIXUS | RIBS system, which creates rigid inflatable beams over the area and supports the membrane roof.
