When disaster strikes, there's no time to wait for the delivery of large, bulky portable housing units. There's also no point in delivering hundreds of units that can't properly be stored until they're required - as has been the case in the past.
That's why FORTS fold-out shelters are the right choice. Because they collapse to 1/6th their deployed volume, six folded shelters fit in an 8' X 40' ISO container. Yet when expanded, each becomes a 270 sq. ft. insulated shelter, providing accommodations for displaced people that are both utilitarian and comfortable. They can be assembled in ten short minutes with a team of just three people.
FORTS mobile buildings can be fully equipped with plug & play HVAC, lighting, data and electric. Options can also include kitchens, bathrooms and walkways which allow FORTS portable buildings to be conjoined, forming a compound tailored to your needs. These units are rugged, fully insulated, durable, and fire resistant and waterproof.
One of the most remarkable features of FORTS® fold-out shelters is how versatile they are. Yes, they provide substantial transportation and storage economies, while featuring a wide variety of plug & play amenities and energy-efficient performance capabilities. But they are also designed to connect together in a modular fashion, forming larger compounds.
FORTS® vestibule provides a walkway that connects multiple shelters together, creating the ability to make complexes. The units themselves have connections built right in, to facilitate easy assembly.
