The Hush™2 is our extreme weather version of the Hush™1 and includes a hurricane mode transition. The Hush™2 has been engineered, modelled and independently tested to withstand category 5 hurricane force winds. (Tested to wind speeds of 200mph).
In the event of a hurricane warning the structure can be folded down into storm safe mode in minutes, allowing inhabitants and equipment to shelter safely for the course of the storm – after which the shelter can fold back out to normal living mode.
Like the Hush™1, there is no requirement for separate or additional components and no tools or skills are needed for deployment.
This shelter folds to withstand 200mph winds.
A lockable, wheelchair-accessible door giving security and a sense of ownership

Opening windows and mesh/louvres for airflow.
The option of insulation to help regulate the internal temperature.
The ability to set straight to level ground with no foundations.
The ability to fold and reposition during its 12-year lifespan.
