Emergency Relief Shelters
Shelter Systems' Emergency Disaster
Relief Tent Shelters.
Shelter Systems' Portable Yurt Dome tents have been sheltering people for extended periods of time in all climates for over 20 years.
Shelter Systems' Emergency Disaster Relief Tents offer the best
value because they are strong, durable, watertight, wind-resistant,
pleasant to live in, easily set up, and affordable.

Shelter Systems' Relief Tents are dome shaped patented Geotensic structures. Geotensic structures
are stronger than any other structure of the same volume and weight.
Because of their curved shape with no corners, there are no weak
points. Shelter Systems' Relief Tents are drum tight, completely
waterproof and wind-resistant.
Shelter Systems' tent structures 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
The shingled panels of our Relief
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
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.
The 18' (5.4 m) in a village setting. Eight to ten people can
be sheltered in each dome
Shelter Systems' Emergency and Disaster Relief Yurt Dome Tents 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 breathability 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, 1 1/4"-diameter (3.5 cm.) PVC tubing.
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 Emergency and Disaster Relief Shelters.
Comfortable Living Space
Shelter Systems' Relief Tents are light filled and well ventilated.
The white covering creates a pleasingly bright interior. Shelter
Systems' 5.4 meter Emergency Relief Tent 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
Shelter Systems' Emergency Relief Shelters are winter-ready
tents. They do not require a fly or liner (for extreme cold we
do offer a liner). They
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' Relief Shelters have a minimal
surface area for their volume and are thus easy to keep warm with
a stove (installation instructions are included with each tent).
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 5.4 has 254 square feet and sleeps eight to ten people. The
9 meter dome has 706 square feet and can sleep 30 to 40 people.
As the tents get larger, there is a greater increase in volume
in relation to the increase in diameter. This is because the size
in diameter extends out in all directions, creating a large increase
in volume. Our drawings effectively illustrate
this. Since the surface area of the covering does not increase
as rapidly as the volume, the larger domes are less expensive
for the usable space inside.
The different domes have different numbers of doors. The 5.4
meter Emergency and Disaster Relief Yurt Dome Tents has four flap
doors evenly spaced around the dome for good cross ventilation.
The 9 meter shelter has eight doors.
Shelter Systems' Emergency and Disaster Relief Yurt Dome Tents
perform excellently in strong wind due in part to their many,
evenly space anchor points. The 5.4 meter Disaster Relief Yurt
Dome Tents each have 12 anchor points. The 9 meter has 20 anchor
Complete and Adaptable
Shelter Systems' Emergency and Disaster Relief Yurt Dome Tents come complete with poles, 12" high quality Durapeg stakes,
guy lines for extreme wind settings, ventilation tubes, spare
parts (Grips Clips and pole connectors) and a Shelter
Systems' Instruction Manual that details floors, site selection,
anchoring, cooling, winterizing, and stove installation.
Our tents 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 one
hundred per cent of the sunlight. Other accessories available include rain porches and floors.
Easy Set Up
The 5.4 meter Emergency and Disaster Relief Yurt Dome Tent 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 bend slightly
when inserted, tightening the cover into a wind- and waterproof
shelter. The tent is freestanding requiring no guy lines and can
be moved into the desired position or location without taking
it down. The 5.4 meter Relief Tent can be taken down in 5 minutes.
The 30' (9 m) Emergency Disaster
Relief Tent makes an excellent community focal point for "villages"
of smaller domes. $1900 Shipping $160 Weight:190 lbs (86 kg)
