TekYurts are true semi-permanent, four-season shelters that can be easily combined into multi-room structures. Capable of being assembled by a single-person in less than a day without the use of any specialized tools or ladders, TekYurts are rigid-walled structures that are more than tent replacements, they are house substitutes.
"The TekYurt’s 3-inch (7.62 cm) thick double walls and roof (see panel cross sections photo) provide a degree of physical and psychological shelter that considerably surpasses that offered by other rigid single-wall shelters or tents.
They take advantage of passive ventilation to keep the shelter cool in hot environments and can be insulated for cold environments using any locally available biomass.
TekYurts can also be heated with a wood burning stove vented through the double-insulated roof vent.
TekYurts are manufactured with an anti-UV additive blended into the polypropylene to slow the process of UV degradation.
TekYurts come with a locking Dutch door and window as standard equipment. They can be customized with additional doors and windows and connected to other TekYurts or UtiYurts.
Light enough to be packed to their final destination on the backs of two men (or one donkey), TekYurts are designed for deployment worldwide both to serve as a better alternative for refugees requiring a long-term shelter solution, and as field clinics, schools, and relief organization base camps.
Compared to the UtiYurt, the TekYurt’s more robust plastic and added features make them attractive candidates for relief personnel base camps and personal use shelters.
