The protection of military and civilian personnel, together with key assets including sensitive equipment and critical facilities, from potential CBRN hazards is vital.
Shelter CBRN Filtration systems also play a key role in providing rest and relief from the effects of wearing full Individual Protective Equipment (IPE or MOPS).
This is especially important for key facilities such as strategic equipment, field hospitals, command and control centres, medical dressing stations and static logistic support facilities.

Our adaptable and versatile Shelter CBRN Filtration solutions can be configured to provide clean filtered air directly into the shelter of via the shelter air conditioning system and can be engineered to suit a variety of airflow and shelter pressure requirements.
Platforms currently utilising Bioquell Defence Shelter CBRN Filtration systems include the Marshall SV DARS and Watchkeeper programmes.
