|Publication Date:||1 September 2018|
|ICS Code (Aluminium products):||77.150.10|
1.1 This specification covers a rigid wall, one-side expandable shelter constructed of aluminum-faced, nonmetallic honeycomb sandwich panels, and meeting the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Cargo Container specification in the transport mode. Nominal dimensions when closed (container mode) are: height 8 ft, width 8 ft, and length 20 ft (2.4 by 2.4 by 6.1 m) Approximate dimensions, when expanded (shelter mode) are: height 8 ft, width 15 ft, and length 20 ft (2.4 by 4.6 by 6.1 m).
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
1.3 The following precautionary statement pertains to the test method portion only. Section 7, of this specification; This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determines the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
