INTERGRATED ISO SHELTERS

CMCA GSC shelter MPG065, MPA910

With decades of experience supplying and supporting ISO shelter integration CMCA have used the experience and lessons learnt to become a ‘one stop shop’ full shelter integrator. By offering a COTS 20 foot ISO platform with a modular approach to environmental control and power generation CMCA can offer a fully integrated shelter system tailored to customer requirements without the time and financial commitments to design a bespoke system from the group up.

Though CMCA offer full bespoke design and manufacture capabilities, understanding the market trend towards COTS equipment is the foundation for a modular COTS integrated shelter system. CMCA shelters systems can be deployed via road, rail, sea and air or a permanently vehicle mounted platform.
