developing practical shelter solutions for disaster relief
This is due to the remarkable efficiency of the reciprocal frame roof.
The roof supports heavy insulation. The added security of the severe storm shelter and solid walls.
Particularly at the centre of the roof where it is needed most due to the efficiency of the reciprocal frame.
A complete shelter frame for less than $10. Huge transport and labour cost savings.
Only 7 poles, easily carried and assembled in minutes. No special skills.Repaired with local materials
The emergency shelter can be upgraded to the more permanent elevated shelter within a day.
Reduced risk of dehydration and respiratory infections in tropics and hypothermia in severe winters.
Urban adapts to any floorspace and uses existing masonry. Rural can be built on sloping terrain.
4 units make a 40 square metre classroom or reception.
Speed and efficiency provide opportunities.
When tarpaulin delivery is delayed or not possible the roof can be easily thatched using palm leaves.
The overall shelter response can be greatly improved especially for large scale disasters.
The bamboo RSK is ideal for communities to set up sustainable disaster preparedness programs.
