THE URBAN RSK

ABLE TO FREESTAND ON CONCRETE

all RSK shelter kits use this simple concept

when 4 bamboo poles are overlapped in turn and lashed together

they make a load bearing structure with a proven history in construction called a RECIPROCAL FRAME 

and  provides the strength and efficiency we require

 

 

 this frame supports the roof tarpaulin inside every shelter

advantages of these shelters in an emergency

the efficiency of the RSK shelter enables it to use

33% LESS BAMBOO

by using only strong complete bamboo poles it avoids these

WEAK LATTICE ROOFS

no special skills or tools are required so that

EVERYONE CAN  ASSIST ASSEMBLY

overhead work is avoided as this roof can be 

ASSEMBLED ON THE GROUND

any available materials can be used for walls as they

DO NOT SUPPORT THE ROOF

from temporary classrooms to isolation wards RSKs are

FULLY MODULAR SHELTERS

using only 2 lengths of bamboo for the roof makes maintenance simple and

PROMOTES  PERSONALISATION

when bamboo becomes available families can simply use the same roof frame to 

 UPGRADE THEIR SHELTER
