ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Emergency Shelters International, LLC (ESI) has introduced its ESI Dome for military applications. A frameless shelter structure that’s as strong as a standard building, but as mobile as a tent, the ESI Dome is particularly useful in remote settings where shelter is needed, but largely unavailable.
An unassembled ESI Dome fits in the back of a pickup truck or trailer and can be set up by two people in four hours, making it ideal for temporary military housing or command posts. ESI Domes can be taken down and reassembled repeatedly without losing structural integrity.
Resembling igloos, affordable ESI Domes are made of molded fiberglass panels that withstand temperatures over 120 degrees F - or below 0 degrees F. A virtually indestructible exterior gel coating resists sun, snow and rain.
Circular in design, assembled ESI Domes measure 20’ in diameter with 314 sq. ft. of floor space and a 12’ ceiling at the center. Space can be increased by adding a 500 sq. ft. loft. Domes have door and window openings, weigh approximately 1,100 pounds, and can be purchased in nearly 40 colors. They can be shipped anywhere in the world using 8’ x 8’ x 4’ containers.
The structures are also ideal as temporary farm labor housing, shelter for hunters and campers, disaster relief housing, quarantine shelters and temporary homeless housing.
“The uses for these structures are endless,” said David Hunsucker, owner of ESI, LLC. “They can be used individually or several can be set up as a community, depending on the user’s needs. Interior temperatures can be regulated and internal layouts changed. The versatility, portability and durability of these units, as well as their long-term affordability, make them attractive for diverse applications.”
