A composite foam and beam panel system is used to build the units. Panels are made of a bonded sandwich construction consisting of a polyurethane foam core, aluminum skins and framework of high-strength all-welded aluminum alloy extrusions. The ISO corners and the end-band framework as well as the base of the shelter are made of high-tensile steel.
These ISO corner fittings interlock with standard hardware for lifting, tying down and lasing units together from top-to-bottom and side-to-side.
Forklift trucks can move the units by using the heavy-duty pockets located within the skids on the two long sides of the shelter.
Jack mounting pads at each lower corner are incorporated as part of the basic unit. As an option, leveling/lifting jacks may be furnished. These jacks are used for lifting the shelter on/off the Van Mobilizer and for leveling the units on uneven terrain.
The corner posts of Ramim ISO shelters can withstand the weight of five loaded stacked shelters.
The currently produced ISO/ANSI standardized shelter/container is a lightweight design aimed at rapid deployment via air, sea, land and rail transportation methods.
The standardization facilitates handling and shipping by worldwide military commercial carriers, shippers, charter companies and using agencies.
