Istanbul Doorset / Earthquake shelter

Istanbul Doorset
Istanbul Doorset

The Istanbul Doorset provides domestic shelter for building occupants during an earthquake. It combines one of the strongest parts of the interior construction, the doorframe opening, with an integral bi-fold door that folds on the horizontal axis to create a stable horizontal sheltering plane. Each Istanbul Doorset can shelter one couple or adult with child and an appropriate number would be strategically integrated depending upon the size and type of accommodation. A basic survival kit (water, radio, torch, alarm, thermal mac) is incorporated within the door jamb.
