Multipurpose shelters

multipurpose shelters - Covertechnology.com

Cover Technology shelters are multi-purpose, movable structures, suitable for air transport, able to ensure protection even in harsh weather conditions. Systems can be installed in very short times, directly on the ground, with no need for reinforced concrete plinths. Special extruded aluminium alloy profiles are used to minimize the weight of the supporting structure while ensuring the necessary strength. MULTIPURPOSE SHELTERS consist of an aluminium and steel frame covered with technical PVC fabric. The choice of materials allows shipping low weights and compact volumes, rapid assembly and impressive resistance to weather loads. This construction solution is applied for shelters for use in the Industrial, Events and Civil Defence sectors, thanks to a very rapid, effective installation system (approximately 1,000 square metres of shelter erected per day by an 8-person team).

CONFIGURATION

Length Standard modules 05.00 metres / total length infinite
Side height Minimum 02.50 metres / Maximum 04.00 metres
Wind resistance Minimum 25 m/sec / Maximum 41 m/sec
Snow resistance Minimum 60 daN/m² / Maximum 400 daN/m²
Cover fire resistance class Self-extinguishing – Flame Retardant Class 2
Operating temperature -30 °C  /  +70 °C

MULTIPURPOSE SHELTER structures are of modular design, allowing:

  • VARIOUS CONFIGURATIONS (open and enclosed structures, etc.), thanks to the wide range of accessories and equipment.
  • INSTALLATION ON DIFFERENT SURFACES (asphalt, concrete, dirt, or sand) thanks to a special anchor system (with threaded bars, plates and nails or spiral bars)
  • DESIGN FOR A SPECIFIC SNOW BEARING CAPACITY, ranging from 60 kg/sq. m for the basic structure up to 400 kg/sq. m for areas with very high snowfall
  • Provision of CE MARKING of the structural components in compliance with the EN 1090-1:2009+A1:2011 standard thanks to Cover Technology’s accreditation.

It is also important to note that structures are designed and constructed in compliance with the Italian Ministerial Decree dated 14.01.2008 (known as the Technical Construction Standards or NTC2008 with return time Tr 50 years) and in compliance with the Eurocodes.

The supporting frame consists of extruded aluminium alloy profiles, creating a lightweight structure that withstands all weather conditions. Roofs and side walls are in flame-retardant, waterproof, very tough, PVC fabric. Naturally, there is a very wide selection of materials to suit the different uses and locations of structures. The main materials used in construction of MULTIPURPOSE SHELTER structures are:

Anchor systems for firm ground and asphalt surfacesSteel nails driven into the ground

MATERIALS
Main structure components Aluminium alloy profiles
Base plate elements Hot-dip galvanised steel
Cover Modular sheets of Class 2 Flame-Retardant PVC / Sandwich panels
Side walls, if required Modular sheets of Class 2 Flame-Retardant PVC / Sandwich panels
Doors or openings, if required Folding vehicle doors / personnel doors
Metal cables Plastic-coated steel cable
Supporting surface Plinth not required
Anchor systems for concrete surfaces Threaded bars fixed with structural vinyl/epoxy resins
Anchor systems for loose ground Continuous spiral coils or rods

Apart from the STANDARD PVC sheeting, the cover may be in:

  • PVC fabrics with blackout treatment for sun protection
  • Thick PVC fabrics (strong cover)
  • Low-emission (silver-coated) or insulated PVC fabrics
  • PVC fabrics with special coating
  • Per la Protezione Civile di Montaggio, nel nord Italia, è stata realizzata una tenda polifunzionale di 10×25
  • Per i Vigili del fuoco di Solbiate Olona è stata realizzata una tenda polifunzionale di 15×20
  • Per la protezione civile dell’Aquila, è stata realizzata una tenda polifunzionale di 16×40
