Description

HuSh2

The only transitional shelter in the world engineered to withstand category 5 hurricane force winds.

The Hush2 is our extreme weather version of the Hush1 and includes a hurricane mode transition. The HuSh2 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 HuSh1, there is no requirement for separate or additional components and no tools or skills are needed for deployment.
