The white rectangular building with rounded corners and a glass-walled front is modern, sleek and simple, like a giant smart phone. And like smart phones, AirClad’s new portable, rentable modular buildings can multi-task, to be used as festival accommodations, temporary classrooms, offices, marketing suites, seasonal bars, beach events or VIP venues. The lightweight, easy-to-install modules consist of an aluminum frame wrapped in heavy-duty polyester PVC or silicon glass that can be branded with a company’s logo or blend in with existing site architecture.
AirClad, based in Antwerp, Belgium, developed a patent-pending compression construction system to reduce site fittings for the modular structures. The 19- or 32-foot wide modules are 8 feet deep, and any number of them can be connected together, like the segments of a caterpillar, to achieve the ideal size. A raised floor allows utilities and equipment to be hidden but accessible to the user. The buildings are air sealed, providing some insulation and draft protection, and the glass door and front surface frame the products or people inside as effectively as a department store window.
