2nd generation lightweight emergency family shelter
This presentation details the progress of Shelter Centre volunteers in designing a second generation emergency lightweight shelter. The shelter builds on the work of previous University of Cambridge shelterproject volunteers but is designed to be used in kit form. It consists of an aluminium hoop profile structure with separate outer and inner covers.
The shelter has been designed in accordance with Sphere standards and the recently published UN OCHA tent guidelines. The presentation includes pictures of the prototype and gives further information on the specification and details of the design.
