Entry Description

Shelter Pack is a flat pack, easy to transport shelter which is 12 square meter and easy to assemble- can be built in just few hours. It can sustain a family of four for months following a disaster. Every unit features 4 single beds, bathroom, fully equipped kitchen, and foldable dining table and storage spaces. Since the system is out of touch with ground, heat loss from the floor and blowing in wind are avoided. With its angle adjustable legs, system can be installed in sloping lands as well. The structure of the system is well-thought in order to protect disaster stricken people from climate of the area. Water spouts created on the roof prevents rain load and water leakage and collects rain water in a tank, while skylight provides receiving sunlight overhead all day.
