Real Relief Launches Lifeshelter®, a New and Innovative Low Cost Housing Solution
09 Jan, 2017, 08:30 ET
DAR ES SALAM, Tanzania, Jan. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Real Relief announced today the launch of Lifeshelter®, a unique shelter and rehousing solution based on an innovative concept that is ideal for rapid temporary rehousing in emergency situations, as well as being re-purposed for permanent housing. Lifeshelter® is a durable, modular, cost effective and reusable rehousing solution that meets a wide variety of shelter needs. Utilizing advanced technology, designed by Danish company EverShelter ApS, Real Relief will market, manufacture and sell Lifeshelter® worldwide.
The Lifeshelter® design is based on utilizing a well-insulated, curved construction panel. The patent-pending concept is simple and suitable for a wide range of purposes. The self-supporting shelter is easy to erect, even without skilled labor, and does not require any special tools. Long term, the shelters can be disassembled, transported and re-utilized as a roof structure, or as insulation, in permanent dwellings.
"In addition to Real Relief´s joint effort with EverShelter to bring Lifeshelter® to the worldwide aid and relief market, we have also been working in collaboration with Trolle Meesle, Tanzania who is our local implementing partner. Lifeshelter® will be erected and displayed as a show-room and test-site for interested organizations at Kinondoni District Dar Es Salam City. After the event Lifeshelter® will be donated to the Tanzania Police force to be used as a police post.
"It's the first time a Lifeshelter® is being introduced to the Tanzanian market and we look forward to introducing the product's features as well as the social and economic benefits. We believe that Lifeshelter® provides not just a shelter, but a real home," said Trine Angeline Sig, Managing Director of Real Relief.
According to the local partner Meesle in Tanzania, "Lifeshelter® is a good solution for Tanzania as it adds durability and resilience to a temporary tent in the shape of insulation and a simple construction system. The solution considers the life situation of people in displacement and restores dignity while contributing to a slightly more reasonable daily life for its occupants. The design is modular, making it adaptable to the size of the family and easy to pack up and bring along, should the volatility of life in displacement demand the same."
