Add Water — Instant Shelter

Build your own emergency shelter with Concrete Canvas’s products. The building comes in an airtight bag, but it’s not small. You’ll need a vehicle to pull it out. Then, it needs to be inflated. The building can be set u in just under an hour by two people, and a vehicle and other hardware. Next, you wet it with water, and the concrete within the fabric will harden within 24 hours. Not practical, but useful, except when there’s an actual emergency.

“Concrete Canvas have developed two shelter variants, CCS25 and CCS54 (with 25sqm and 54sqm of floor space respectively). CCS structures have been designed to maximize their internal usable space. A standard CCS54 can accommodate up to 15 people according to Sphere Standards, Humanitarian and Disaster Response Charter. For longer term operations, CCS54 will accommodate 8 standard cots with free standing mosquito nets. The technology can be scaled up to provide even larger structures. Future product developments include shelters to be used for storage of vehicles and helicopters.”

If anyone has any experience or anything with stuff like this, please say something!
