The 10-foot MECC (nicknamed the “Mini MECC”) is ideal for applications requiring a smaller footprint.

  • Can be manufactured with a steel or aluminum core
  • Has almost all the options of a 20-foot MECC
  • Links to all other Weatherhaven expandable containers and softwall MTS shelter
  • Standard Nominal Sizes: 8′ wide x 8′ high x 10′ long, or 8′ wide x 8’6″ high x 10′ long

The MECC also comes in an extended-height version. The 12′-6″ Extended Height Mobile Expandable Container Configuration (EHMECC™) is ideal for applications such as Command and Control Centres and Field Hospital Operating Rooms.
