Hi Dahalia, thank you for your comment, we agree with you, CAVE is designed to respond immediately to a humanitarian crisis, we seek to give a comfortable space to the people affected, the system is designed to meet two main functions: -Storage and transportation: this shelter is like a life jacket in a community, it will always be folded and stored in some warehouse in case an emergency arises, it is easy to transport if you have to send the shelters to a neighboring community as support. -Robust, durable and isolate: It must provide the greatest comfort to people who use it, providing privacy, a comfortable temperature, protection from the weather, and a quiet space to sleep. This system is definitely not a solution to avoid a humanitarian crisis, but it is a tool for the positive recovery of communities.
Hi Chuck, I'm Luca, Efren's partner, thanks for your comment, for the structure of the u-blocks we mix GRIND EVA whit polyester resin in a mold whit 10 tons of passion, the Ublock its a strong structure by itself, in case of weakness, we can add internal aluminum reinforcement.
