Rapid Emergency Shelter - RES

by Peter Charlesworth

This 'tube' design takes the traditional & proven A-frame tent and simplifies it further. Lightweight ,waterproof and fireproof material, simple set up process and compact packed size make this the perfect solution for extreme disaster management through to individual survival requirements. Innovative 'peg loop bags' allow materials such as rocks mud and sand to be used as ballast in zones where peg use is not possible. Combined with a simple mosquito net, this tent will provide an oasis away from disease, weather and disaster. RES tents can be deployed in vast numbers from the air, and through on-ground distribution.
