Alaska Structures has launched a game changing shelter system. Through the use of an in-house developed, reticulated, arch frame structure they have provided a shelter solution capable of being erected by no more than 6 personnel in under 15 minutes.
This Expedition Shelter retains the strength and comfort of Alaska Systems’ traditional shelter systems, without the use of any ladders or lifting equipment. The shelter is available in three sizes: 6.1 x 5.9m (requiring 4 personnel for erection); 6.1 x 7.9m (requiring 5 personnel for erection) and 6.1 x 9.9m (requiring 6 personnel for erection). OPEC Systems is proud to offer this shelter system as a standalone system, or as part of an integrated shelter system customised to meet the users’ requirements.
