practical shelter innovation for disaster relief

Assembly of the steel ReciproBoo Shelter Kit (RSK)


The ReciproBoo Shelter Kit (RSK)

The steel RSK is simple to assemble and requires only a brief demonstration to show how the 4 reciprocal frame poles overlap in turn.

If kits are distributed without being demonstrated it is suggested that the 4 reciprocal frame pole sections are marked with red and green paint ( or tape ) at their points of overlap, so that a simple diagram of the assembly is all that is required.

The following slide show describes the assembly in detail.

The assembly can also be seen here in a short video.

  • 20 identical interlocking poles (four are colour coded

    • with red and green tape to assist assembly,
      • 2 tarpaulins,
      • Sisal twine,
      • Polypropylene rope,
      • 4 steel pegs and hooks.
