The Urban RSK is the first complete shelter kit that is freestanding on concrete or asphalt. It is designed for urban disasters, especially earthquakes, where traditional shelter structures are difficult to erect.

Testing the first Urban RSK prototype  at UNHCR training. Myanmar 2017    

When 2 reciprocal frame roof panels are inclined against each other and lashed to two props the structure is remarkably stable on solid ground. This stability increases with the addition of the tarpaulin and when earth bags are placed on top of the two lower frame members. Two heavy guy ropes attached to earth bags on each side complete the shelter.
