Decontamination containers (CBRN) / HAZMAT

Containerized Decontamination Unit

Responding to a chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear (CBRN) incident always means providing some form of decontamination. The potential threats have increased, and with it the need for decontamination systems for Firefighters, Government en Defence forcers.

We have played a leading role in the field of decontamination for many years. Starting with the construction of decontamination containers and vehicles specifically suited for this task.


These special hook-lift containers and/or vehicles are fully engineered and built in cooperation with the end user by our experienced team and are suitable for the decontamination of gas and chemical suit carriers as well as tools that are exposed to contamination, but if desired also for the decontamination of persons.

Here you have the choice between a so-called water decontamination system with appropriate additives, but also from an active foam decontamination system. The latter technique, called deFcon (BMT DeconFoam), requires significantly less water and there is virtually no aerosol risk.

In addition to (hot) water facilities, showers and, in some cases, a decontamination possibility for persons on a stretcher, our decontamination units are often equipped with a breathing air buffer system for the decontaminators. These breathing air systems are designed and built in by our specialists and then delivered with PED approval.

Optionally, it is possible to provide the decontamination container with an automatic horizontal positioning system and even to carry out the combination of a hook-lift system with an ISO container system.
