KEY BENEFITS OF RSK : A STRONGER AND MORE SECURE SHELTER

STRENGTH OF THE RECIPROCAL FRAME

Every RSK shelter has a strong reciprocal frame roof that enables it to support heavy insulation.

In the tropics covering the roof with available cladding or foliage results in a much cooler shelter. In a cold climate or at altutude, insulating the roof results in a warmer shelter.

Unlike the makeshift shelters that are at present built by families after a disaster, the RSK will not collapse under heavy rain or snow.

SECURITY OF THE SEVERE STORM SHELTER

The RSK shelter can lowered within 5 minutes to the severe storm shelter. The covering tarpaulin edges are then buried into the ground to anchor the frame securely. This low profile shelter has performed well in high speed wind tunnel tests.

SECURITY OF BUILDING SOLID WALLS

It is easy to build solid walls for the RSK shelter.
This is because the reciprocal frame roof of the shelter only requires support at its 4 corner posts. Any solid or semi-solid wall can be built up in stages when materials become available to improve the security of the family.
