Cube Base frame 20` – Crash frame

Reinforced Cube™ base frame for mounting of mission equipment.

The CubeTM – revolutionising vessel conversion

Modern naval vessels must be capable of carrying out different missions and roles in both peacetime and wartime. Reconfiguring vessels for new missions can be both costly and time consuming. That is why SH Defence developed The Cube™.

The Cube™ is a flexible and cost-saving solution consisting of modular equipment with standardised interfaces enabling reconfiguration of vessels in less than 4 hours. All you need to do is unload the Cube™ modules that are no longer required and load the modules that support the vessel’s next mission.

A strong foundation for your Cube™

With the Cube™ 20’ Base Frame, any light and mediumweight mission equipment that has the footprint smaller then a standard 20’ container can be turned into a Cube™, and if SH Defence mounts the equipment on the base frame, the Cube™ will be delivered with a Cubeready certificate.

The base frame is a welded steel structure with four profiles for optimum strength, and ISO corner castings are fitted at the top and bottom for lifting and sea fastening. The surface of the Cube™ 20’ Base Frame is made of glass-reinforced plastic (GRP) grating, which provides a very strong and anti-slip surface.

The Cube™ Base Frame is a plug-and-play structure provided with standard connections compatible with the mission bay standard connection cabinet CubedIn™.  Furthermore, the base frames are provided with forklift pockets for empty handling.

Designed to the highest standards

The Cube™ 20’ Base Frame is designed according to DNV GL ST-0378 for offshore and platform lifting appliances and it conforms to ISO 668. The Cube™ 20’ Base Frame is type approved, so no lengthy approval process is required to have your Cube™ approved and ready for deployment. The Cube™ 20’ Base Frame is delivered with a CSC certificate for shipping.
