|20ft Single Entry
HESCO bunkers kits have been developed to utilise forty and twenty foot ISO containers. Walls are constructed using appropriate Mil 1 sections providing a wall thickness of 1.06m (3’ 6”). The roof design provides 0.6m (2’) of overhead cover.
The bunker kits fall into two categories; material bunker kits provide access from one end of the bunker, while personnel bunker kits provide access from both ends. Bunker kits are available in both 20ft and 40ft Single and Double entry.
Although the ISO containers are not absolutely necessary, they do provide enhanced protection, by acting as a spall liner; and can, if properly ventilated, provide environmental protection to the occupants.
ISO containers are not provided with the sets.
Containerised Bunker Kit
A containerised kit has been developed which offers an effective means of transporting all the components required to construct a bunker. The ISO container has a fully opening side, facilitating rapid deployment of all components. The container also comes complete with a pre-fabricated personnel door and a rear escape hatch, both of which can be opened from inside.
Typical uses of HESCO Bunkers;
- Living quarters/Mess facility
