- Category: Military, Press Releases
Alaska Defense™, a division of AKS Industries, Inc., is now producing the next generation of containerized hygiene facilities, a critical tool supporting military operations across the globe. As military demands evolve, we understand the need for rapid deployments, the swift build-up of forces, and the maintenance of high-quality hygiene standards for soldiers serving in forward positions. With these imperatives in mind, we’ve designed our containerized shower, latrine, and ablution units to streamline personal hygiene, even in the most austere environments.
Unsatisfied with simply retrofitting a shipping container with a shower or toilet, we have devoted years to creating an entirely new container design from the ground up. Through rigorous real-world testing and invaluable feedback from countless field tests conducted by soldiers, we’ve perfected a new kind of containerized facility. These are not mere adaptations of existing designs; they represent a fundamental advancement, purpose-built containerized facilities to support a wide array of military operations.
Our state-of-the-art containerized facilities deliver more than just unparalleled hygiene solutions. They contribute significantly to the overall well-being of deployed personnel, enhancing their effectiveness and readiness for mission demands. This breakthrough in design signifies our unwavering commitment to supporting military forces with the highest-quality solutions.
Exploring Alaska Defense’s Advanced Containerized Hygiene Facilities
Alaska Defense’s containerized hygiene facilities are self-contained structures designed with six individual toilet stalls or six private showers. The combo shower and latrine facility has three separate toilets and three shower stalls. These climate-controlled hygiene facilities feature lockable doors, a sink, a mirror, shelves, towel hooks, a power outlet, an exhaust fan, and a fold-down seat (shower container facility only).
Our containerized hygiene facilities feature a rugged design, carefully constructed for rapid, repeated deployments and multiple transportation methods. All our units incorporate forklift pockets and ISO corner blocks to facilitate hassle-free stacking and top lifting, further underlining our commitment to operational efficiency.
Built-in HVAC systems with energy recovery ventilators (ERVs) are crucial to our containerized hygiene facilities. In addition to providing a temperature-controlled environment for year-round use, the ERV system filters and refreshes air circulation while conserving heat. The built-in heat exchanger allows the transfer of heat and moisture between incoming and outgoing air streams, ensuring heat is retained during cold winter months and enhancing comfort levels for personnel.
Each unit is fitted with energy-efficient LED lighting, illuminating each stall brightly while reducing overall energy consumption. This not only provides superior visibility but also contributes to environmental sustainability.

Our containerized hygiene facilities feature integrated water pumps, a filtration unit, and an on-demand multi-fuel water heater compatible with kerosene, fuel oil, and diesel. These features, along with a 120-gallon fuel tank, ensure a consistent supply of hot water, vital for maintaining high hygiene standards. Our containerized facilities can easily be connected to municipal water sources or external water tanks, offering flexibility in terms of water supply and further enhancing their deployment capabilities in
various operational settings.
Reinforced, moisture and scratch-resistant paneling ensure our containerized hygiene facilities are easy to clean and maintain. The inclusion of floor drains in all shower and latrine stalls facilitates aid in swift and effective cleaning procedures.
The safety of personnel is a top priority for us at Alaska Defense, and this is evident in the installation of slip-resistant rubberized flooring in all our units, designed to reduce accidents and injuries.
All our containerized hygiene facilities are proudly made in the U.S.A., reflecting our commitment to American-made quality, durability, and operational excellence.
