Temporary Body Storage Solutions


We are the leading supplier of temporary body storage systems. Complete with its own patent, our temporary morgues can be found all over the world. We have a wealth of experience in logistics and deploying our mortuary systems far and wide is a regular occurrence.

Our temporary mortuary system is known as the ResponStor®. It has been designed with the service user in mind to provide an efficient response when required at short notice. With over 30 ResponStor® variants, there is always a storage solution to suit customer needs. Our morgue systems are deployed for a variety of situations; such as mass fatality incidents where on scene body storage is required to providing extra mortuary space within hospitals. We have taken great care to provide privacy and dignity to those deceased.   

These temporary fridge morgues are available in two different styles; hard shell and soft shell. The hard shell units tend to be used for longer term instances, for example, to aid mortuary storage demand within hospitals. The soft shell units are highly portable and often used by polices to protect the deceased on crime scenes and in situations of large-scale disaster.

With its extensive range of accessories, full ResponStor® systems can be moved by vehicles, aircraft or marine craft: they can even be air dropped or underslung by helicopter. One of the temporary mortuary system’s most well-known accessories is the dedicated barrier for chemical weapons and radiation.

Used by governing bodies, emergency management organisations, hospitals and police forces worldwide.

ResponStor® is the storage solution of choice for a great many nations.
