practical shelter innovation for disaster relief

Why should we use the RSK?

4. Cost and transportation savings are huge.


Ten RSKs can be supplied for the same cost as a single tent. Together with the 30% savings in transport costs, this can save aid agencies hundreds of thousands of pounds.

2. There is no alternative frame for supporting tarpaulins.

5. The RSK reduces transitional shelter waste.


The RSK can be worked on and upgraded to make a transitional shelter thereby providing a single step pathway to building a permanent shelter.

At present, when a family receives a tarpaulin they have to build their own frame to support it. The resulting shelter is invariably poorly constructed and provides little protection from the elements.


3. Endorsement by shelter engineers.


Over the last 4 years the positive feedback from engineers that have either seen a demonstration of the shelter or helped to build it at workshops, has been unanimous.
