Confined Space Training Simulator Built with Conex Box for 9/11 Veteran George Rex

Container Training Simulator Space

10 September 2019 ( PR Submission Site ) – RoxBox built a confined space training simulator using a Conex box for 9/11 veteran George Rex’s training business, Sendrex. Training simulator is built with a 20 ft High Cube Conex box that allows trainees repel down through the hatch on top of the conex (aka shipping container) to assess a casualty inside the unit. The deck is reinforced and built with a custom metal grate and removable handrail system. 

 This custom conex box training simulator is the first of two that will be built out. The second unit will have a tubular maze that trainees will have to navigate with little to no light inside. It will help to develop the skills of trainees by simulating a real-life rescue scenario in a confined space with restricted movement ability and in the dark.

 “Using shipping containers for fire training has been quite popular as it’s cost-effective but this project proved that the use areas of containers can go beyond fire props with appropriate modification capabilities and creative ideas. We’re very proud to have worked with a 9/11 hero and build an excellent training environment for his business.“ said Anthony Halsch, founder of RoxBox.
