The Modular House System for disaster management
Because of the complex material properties of STROPOLY®TEC especially due to the light-weight, strength, stability and weather-resistance STROPOLY®TEC can preferentially be used as construction material for emergency accommodations in areas where e.g. environmental disasters or armed conflicts have damaged or destroyed the human livings environment.
Prefabricated STROPOLY®TEC modules for house construction can be manufactured e.g. walls, ceilings, floors, roof and sanitary module. Individual housing units can be installed like single-, row houses in one ore two floor system etc.
The STROPOLY®TEC modules can be available in short-time and can be easily transported also in rough terrain, since the material is light and very impassible.
The STROPOLY®TEC modules can be easily assembled on site by bonding or special connecting fittings. Heavy lifting equipment is not required.
The houses built from STROPOLY®TEC are very good weather resistant and heat insulating and have a relatively high earthquake resistance and can be used as a short- or long-term interim arrangement but also as a permanent solution
STROPOLY®TEC modules have a high mobility, flexibility and persistence (long-life cycle) and can be reused in the case if the houses are used only temporarily
Emergency accomodations made from STROPOLY®TEC can be used for example
- after earthquake disaster
- after flood disaster
- after blaze disaster
- after armed conflicts
- for development assistance
