Insulated Winter and Summer

Floor vents can be closed internally during winter or in colder times or climes.

The heating and cooking system is attached to the floor on a fireproof base.
Depending on the local circumstances either a woodburning stove or a oil burning stove can be deployed.
It is connected to the ceiling by a chimney.

saife Heating and Cooking

Quote: "The quality and appropriateness of shelter within transitional settlements have a major impact on health: for example, smoke produced by cooking on stoves or open fires is the fourth greatest risk to health and disease worldwide (Warwick and Doig 2004). Consequently, the provision of adequate cooking facilities for displaced populations should be viewed as vital to public health."


Water Collection System

The water collection system is a simple friction fit guttering that drains into a reinforced rubberized bag attached to the outside of the shelter
with an internal tap. It is sealed at the point of the waters entry to prevent contamination.

saife - Water Collection System

Quote: "Contaminated water and many insects are a source of disease, such as malaria, bilharzias, and sleeping sickness. This is one of the reasons flood-prone areas should be avoided as sites for planned camps or self settlement. The risk of disease may be reduced through a variety of measures that can be integrated into shelter design."
