Collierville, TN (PRWEB) January 24, 2010
In the aftermath of the earthquake devastation in Haiti or similar events worldwide, affected local residents are quite often faced with sparse, limited and inadequate resources for immediate shelter. VersaTube® Building Systems works with domestic and international relief organizations and suppliers to provide steel shelters, temporary housing, transitional structures, and permanent buildings offering displaced families a safe dwelling for refuge and rest, as well as staging and storage structures for relief effort supplies.
VersaTube structures can be erected with limited construction skills and do not require heavy equipment to complete. The heart of the VersaTube® Building System is a patented Slip-Fit connection that simplifies assembly of high strength structural steel shelter frames. Frame components are pre-cut and engineered in a manageable size for easy handling and compact packaging for domestic and overseas shipment.
The greatest benefit of the VersaTube steel frame system, especially for disaster relief, is its ability to be used initially to build temporary moveable emergency shelters and canopies (with added tent or canvas pullovers) which can later be converted into permanent structures for long-term housing (using sheet metal, plywood, or other roofing/siding options). Contact VersaTube at 1-800-900-7222 to discuss options for steel frame disaster relief shelters and buildings.
VersaTube® Building Systems, with plants at corporate headquarters in Collierville, Tenn. and in Casa Grande, Ariz., designs, manufactures, distributes and markets pre-engineered steel building components and systems for residential, agricultural, commercial, light industrial, public works and custom building applications.
