Shelter Systems' Tents have been sheltering people for over 25 years and has been making Disaster Relief Tents for over 15 years. We are now proud to offer Earthquake Preparedness Shelters to County Health Departments, Fire Departments, Schools, Classrooms, Neighborhood, Churchs, Hospitals and Businesses.

Easy Set Up
Shelter Systems' Earthquake and Disaster Preparedness Dome Tents can be set up by one person in 30 minutes without tools. Insert the interchangeable poles into factory-attached connectors spaced evenly over the cover. The poles are bend slightly when inserted, tightening the cover into a wind- and waterproof shelter. The cover is freestanding requiring no guy lines and can be moved into the desired position or location without taking it down. The EarthquakeTents can be taken down in 5 minutes: just remove the poles and roll up the covering.

Worlds Strongest Dome Tents Since 1976
Shelter Systems' Earthquake and Disaster Preparedness Tent Shelters are dome shaped patented Geotensic structures. Geotensic structures are stronger than any other structure made of the same materials. Because of their curved shape with no corners, there are no weak points. Shelter Systems' Earthquake Tents are drum tight, completely waterproof and wind-resistant. (18 above and to the right)

Shelter Systems' Earthquake and Disaster Preparedness Tent Shelters have the poles on the outside with the covering suspended under the frame via Shelter Systems' own Grip Clip tarp fasteners. The frame and the covering are not in direct contact. The important benefits from this design are that the covering is under constant, even tension so that the tent will not flap in the wind. The poles cannot rub against the covering. This prevents wind flap shredding and pole friction wearing. Also, since the poles and covering are not touching, there is no temperature buildup to degrade the fabric at contact points. Shelter Systems' Earthquake and Disaster Preparedness Yurt Dome Tents perform excellently in strong wind due to evenly space cross bracing and anchor points.

The shingled panels of our Earthquake tents overlap each other by 6", making the structure stronger and completely leak proof. The shingling also allows the structure to breathe. The buildup of moisture is driven out through the overlapped panels by vapor pressure and does not condense inside the tent. (inside a 31 above to left)

Shelter Systems' patented Grip Clips™ tarp fasteners join the Dome's cover to the frame. Grip Clips also fasten the shingled panels together, providing greater strength than sewn seams or any type of grommet because they do not puncture the cover. The Grip Clips grip a large area of fabric spreading wind loads and preventing tearing. (two 14' to right)

Durable Materials
Shelter Systems' Earthquake and Disaster Preparedness Tent Shelters are made wholly of a superstrong, tear-proof, woven ripstop film which will not rot or mildew. The covering effectively excludes rain, dampness, wind, cold, and sun. The completely waterproof covering and the shingled breakability make a rain fly unnecessary. The covering is UV-stabilized to withstand up to 3 years of full sun exposure. The white color of the covering reflects the heat of the sun and provides 40% shade.

The frames are constructed of strong, long lasting, resilient, UV-stabilized, Class 200, 3/4" to 1 1/4"-diameter (3.5 cm.) PVC tubing. (see 30' to left and 18' to the right below)

Affordable
Our waterproof design does not require a rain fly and the particular geometric shape utilizes material efficiently. The high performance covering is affordable. Because of the design and our tarp fasteners, our tents are labor efficient to build. These factors make for reliable and affordable Earthquake and Disaster Preparedness Dome Shelters.

Comfortable Living Space
Shelter Systems' Earthquake Yurt and Dome Tents are light filled and well ventilated. The white covering creates a pleasingly bright interior. Shelter Systems' 18' Emergency and Earthquake Preparedness Tent Shelters has four flap doors evenly spaced around the dome for good cross ventilation and light. The door coverings close automatically so you can go in or out quickly. There are no zippers to fumble with or break. Over each door is a translucent skylight window which allows 90% of the sunlight to pass through it while preserving the privacy of the people within.

Shelter Systems' Earthquake and Disaster Preparedness Tent Shelters are winter-ready tents. They do not require a fly or liner (for extreme cold we do offer a liner). Our Earthquake Relief Tents are completely water tight and will not leak. The shingled construction allows moist air to be driven out through the by vapor pressure. Shelter Systems' Earthquake Relief Shelters have a minimal surface area for their volume and are thus easy to keep warm with a stove (Stove installation instructions are included with each tent). (30' PrepareShelter to the right)

Overhead ventilation is easily attained by inserting a lightweight object (eg, an empty can) between panels. This ventilation is shingled and sheds rain. When the can is removed, the panels snap shut. For maximum ventilation the walls themselves can be rolled up.

The dome shape has other comfort features: The interior can be divided into "rooms." The tent has more volume than a flat-sided one and therefore feels, and is, more spacious. The shape is more heat efficient requiring less fuel to heat it. Air circulates more evenly in the dome shape than any other shape. The cover of the dome is easily cleaned with a damp cloth.

Comparing Different Domes
The 18' has 254 square feet, a height of 9 foot and sleeps eight to ten people. The 30 dome has 706 square feet, a height of 11' and can sleep 30 to 40 people. The 14', 18', and 20' Yurt Dome Tents have four flap doors evenly spaced around the dome for good cross ventilation. The 30' and 31' shelters have eight doors. More on sizes.

Complete and Adaptable
Shelter Systems' Earthquake and Disaster Preparedness Yurt Dome Tent Shelters come complete with poles, high quality 12" Durapeg stakes, guy lines for extreme wind settings, ventilation tubes, spare parts (Grips Clips and pole connectors) and a Instruction Manual that details floors, site selection, anchoring, cooling, winterizing, and stove installation.

Shelter Systems' Earthquake and Disaster Preparedness Yurt Dome Tent Shelters are ideally suited for most climates; however, they can be further adapted for use in extreme climates. For the extreme cold, where fuel is in short supply, we offer a full liner. For extreme heat, we offer net doors and a sunshade which blocks 80 percent of the sunlight. Other accessories available include rain porches and floors.

"Bob,

Per our telephone conversation this morning.

I would like a quote for Yurt Dome Relief Shelters for 180 people who would be sleeping on standard size cots. This would include the floor. I would also like a quote for two smaller Yurts which would house our command post and medical folks.

The grants we have been able to access are homeland security grants including UASI (Urban Area Security Initiative) and SHSGP (State Homeland Security Grant Program) as well as Citizen Corps Grants

Look forward to hearing from you
