Our Quality Products
The Suscons Emergency Relief Shelter (ERS) is the result of 18 months of collaborative research and development with the School of Engineering at the University of Birmingham. The concept was to develop a flat pack modular system based on waste plastic to provide temporary disaster relief accommodation. The primary priority is to keep the immediate space around inhabitants at a comfortable temperature, covered, dry and secure.
Our Research and Development Programme
We have used UNHCR guidance on emergency accommodation as a minimum performance standard for our ERS. Validation testing of our recycled plastic units is caried out in collaboration with the University of Birmingham. This includes testing the ERS in an Environmental Chamber to ensure that our product will provide safe, secure accommodation in any climatic conditions.
All of our products have the following attributes:
- Withstand temperatures between -25oC and +45oC without structural weakening;
- Withstand wind speed peaks of 75km/h;
- Doors and windows are openable;
- Materials are fire resistant, waterproof, rot proof and UV resistant;
- Modular design to allow flexibility of space;
- Delivered as a flat pack with all necessary connectors;
- Rapidly erected, requiring no special tools, by unskilled labour;
- Fully recyclable at end of use.
S1: 14m2 Standard Family Shelter
The basic Emergency Relief Shelter (ERS) can provide immediate accommodation, taking only a few hours to erect, with no special tools or equipment required. The ERS can accommodate a family of four, based on UNHCR guidance. Our ERS will last a minimum of 10 years, so can be transformed into a Transitional Home with the addition of a bathroom unit. The shelters provide a minimum 2m head height and internal space of 3.5m x 4.0m and can be linked together to increase the internal space. More importantly, doors and windows are lockable providing much needed security.
- Delivered flat pack in standard ISO freight container;
- Easily erected by unskilled labour, with doors and windows integral;
- Designed and tested to withstand a range of environmental conditions
- Modular design so can be attached to other modules to create larger space;
- Can be dismantled and re-located;
4.0m x 3.5m with a sloping roof 2.5m to 2.0m on the long side.
S2: 21m2 Standard Family Shelter with Utility
For longer term applications, the ERS can be attached to a bathroom utility module or separate kitchen module if washroom facilities are provided communally. Utility modules are also delivered flat packed with internal fit out supplied separately. The module can be clipped onto the ERS in a few hours so fit out can be carried out in weatherproof conditions.
The utility units are constructed of the same materials as the ERS, so have the same properties.
S3: 21m2 Mobile Medical Centre
The Suscons Medical Centre can be used in a refugee camp or as a travelling medical unit to deliver medical services to remote communities or other areas of need. The Medical Centre comprises of the standard ERS with an additional treatment room module, consisting of bed, wash hand basin and toilet. The treatment room is a separate room with a door to give added privacy.
The medical units are constructed of the same materials as the ERS, so have the same properties.
It is possible to provide larger, bespoke, facilities by discussing with Suscons.
The shelters have been designed and manufactured using state of the art technology to last a minimum 10 years, the good thing they also come with a 10 year warranty.
Yes, as standard with natural insulation in the roof, floor and side walls. Additional insulation will be provided to meet the extremes of to meet (-42 25 to + 45o2 C) degrees, however we can increase insulation in colder climates using recycled PET plastics in the cavity of the panels.
