VRR was ready to leap into action when L-3 Communications, a global top-ten defence contractor, requested several types of ALF containers for one of their customers. L-3 Communications helps deliver aerospace systems and national security solutions to the U.S. government, its allies and leading corporations. It’s also a leading provider of communication and electronic systems and products used on military and commercial platforms. Like VRR, it knows all about delivering innovative solutions and collaborating in the field.
Soft doors and strong security
The ALF is a certified, rigid container that utilises the full space of an aircraft’s lower deck and is built on a standard pallet size of 3175 x 1534mm. Both versions come with cover doors, one of which with an entrance at both the front and back side to create a ‘walkthrough’. This makes loading and unloading much easier. Although these cover doors may be soft, they are equipped with locking bars and steel cables to prevent unauthorised access.
Transforming the container interior
At the request of L-3 Communications, we adapted one version so that it can store tools and equipment. It looks like a ‘standard’ container on the outside, but the interior has been fully customised to customers' specifications.
These two containers are now ready for delivery, but we’re already busy building a third version of the ALF container and some new AKE containers for L-3 Communications.
