Disasters such as earthquakes, hurricanes and erupting volcanos continue to fill the news. One of the most immediate needs for those affected is proper housing.

A company called Innovative Composites International, Inc. (ICI) has recently introduced the perfect solution. Eco-Shield provides affordable safe housing for permanent or temporary use. These can easily be assembled in a very short timeframe with no skilled labor, conventional tools and can be built on an existing slab or incorporate a lightweight durable flooring system. Easily customized to fit a variety of sizes and floor plans, these durable houses are shipped folded up and flat.

Hurricane and earthquake resistant, made from recyclable materials, energy efficient and well-suited to a variety of environments, Eco-Shield costs less than conventional and modular construction, making it a perfect option during emergency situations.

Eco-Shield housing can be shipped anywhere in the world and can be used not only for housing but for schools, hospitals, offices or any other critical needs facilities. Then, when the emergency eases, they can be disassembled and shipped to the next area of need. Now the only question is how quickly can these get to where they’re needed from now on?
