The Quick Shelter / Survival and Emergency

The Quick Shelter

We can predict an earthquake only a few minutes before it occurs, and this time is valuable for finding a shelter. Spaces near big rigid objects -called “Triangle of Life”- are safer than others. The Quick Shelter is a disaster ready product that mounts on strong walls in buildings and used as stand for TV or even shelves. After predicting an earthquake it warns people by a siren and it transforms to its emergency state that shapes the triangle of life underneath its rigid panels. So people can protect themselves from earthquake debris and stay alive. Water bottles, first-aid kit, light and USB charger is provided in the shelter for survivors
