Packaging

 

The BIOCOFF Emergency System is packed in kits for easy storage and rapid       deployment.

It can be delivered on pallets of different capacities (5, 10…till a maximum of 40 kits), and has practical qualities that no other system presently on the market can offer.

There are no explicit descriptions on the outer packaging of the kit in order to lessen the emotional impact  on people or communities already affected by tragic events.

Storage

 

The packaging of the BIOCOFF Emergency System on pallets*, being perfectly homogeneous and geometrical, allows a functional superposition of the parcels for an optimal utilization of logistic spaces , also in preventive mode, if compared to the traditional coffins.

 

                                                       

feretro08

 

Logistics

 

For example, on a small size logistic platform (l4,80 x p6,40m x h3,90m), 24 pallets of BIOCOFF Emergency System can be stored, for a total of 960 kits.

In the same space, a maximum of one hundred traditional coffins can be stored.
