Fighting Disasters with Inflatable Concrete

By Jeff White, Induron Sales Manager

Earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis. Unfortunately, in the past few years it hasn’t been unusual to hear about these natural disasters occurring all over the world. How to deal with relief efforts and keep people safe in the aftermath is always a challenge, and I think this new technology could be an interesting solution.

Concrete canvas shelters are basically concrete buildings in a bag. Two people can deploy the shelter in under an hour with a fan and water. The result is a cured concrete structure in about 24 hours.

The shelter is fireproof and can be used as a sterile environment for medical testing and treatment, which makes it not only helpful in natural disasters but also for those who are serving on mission trips and working out in the field.
