World Housing Solution Rapidly Deployable Shelter™ (RDS) rigid walled structures offer light weight, fast assembly, and extremely high energy efficiency in a prefabricated package.
Rapidly Deployable Shelters™ (RDS) from World Housing Solution are easy to assemble. No skilled labor, lifting equipment, power machinery, or concrete pad required.
Thermal efficiency (designed to limit thermal transference) with insulation levels up to R-72 yield an unparalleled reduction in energy consumption and the associated logistical burden. Integrated with alternative energy, RDS is capable of operating off-grid in austere environments.
Constructed completely of composite materials, the WHS Rapidly Deployable Shelter™ (RDS) will not rust, rot, mold, mildew, or decay. Being completely man-made, the RDS is not prone to infestation by insects or rodents, with a lifetime measured in decades.
Assembled from Prefabricated Rapidly Deployable Panels (RDP) which weigh 25% as compared to comparable stick-built walls, the RDS is easily transported to site and assembled by unskilled labor without the use of power machinery.
RDP construction incorporates a resilient, environmentally stable fire-resistant skin bonded to an insulative core yielding light weight, thermal efficiency, and extreme strength. The tongue-and-groove connections require no connecting hardware, yet provide a self-supporting structure up to any length in width.
The optional self-leveling aluminum subframe supports up to 976kg/m² (200 lb/sq.ft.) and provides an elevated platform to accommodate unimproved ground. No concrete pad is required.
RDS offers a 21st Century alternative to tents, wood and steel structures offering far greater security, efficiency, and comfort. RDS is the only deployable shelter with a Return on Investment (ROI).
Watch how fast and easy a 16x16 shelter can be assembled:
Assembled in 4 Easy Steps
1. Place WHS Subframe Platform (if required)
2. Lay RDS Floor
3. Erect Walls, Aligning with Tongue/Groove
4. Slide on Ceiling Panels (only 160lbs each)
