4 unit RSK with bamboo lattice walls
8 unit RSK temporary isolation ward
SPECIAL FEATURES OF THIS SHELTER :
SAFETY AND SECURITY
Lashing 4 units together increases the stability of the covered space. The roof is a lightweight structure to have overhead. The low wind profile severe storm option is a practical option.
The ability to adjust and improve ventilation has considerable health benefits especially when used for ancillary medical shelters
(ALL RSK SHELTERS)
All RSK shelters use 33% less bamboo than any equivalent span shelter. This is due to the efficiency of span of the reciprocal frame roof and avoiding using bamboo lattice roofs. Transportation costs are also considerably reduced and bamboo savings have a very positive environmental impact.
All RSK shelters aspire to meet Sphere guidelines and the modular RSKs are no exception.
SIMPLE ASSEMBLY USING MINIMAL SKILLS
All the RSK shelters use only 2 different lengths of bamboo for their roof frames. These roof frames are lashed together ON THE GROUND thereby avoiding the usual overhead work. This not only results in stronger lashing ties but also enables family members to assist with assembly and then simply lift the roof frame onto its support posts when completed.
RSK storm shelter opened for demonstration Bangladesh MSF training
In very severe storms the roof of the RSK shelter can be lowered to the low wind profile " storm shelter" within minutes. Fire safety is greatly improved by reducing combustibility of materials and unique fire break option.
Frame members are interchangeable and can easily be replaced without disassembling the roof frame
All roof frames are identical . This enables modular additions to be made to any RSK shelter as required.
Using complete bamboo poles instead of split bamboo and canes enables all materials in the kit to be recycled over time for animal shelters etc
