Anchoring and Fixing conference
S(P)EEDKITS partner IFRC - Shelter Research Unit (SRU) is pleased to present the Anchoring and Fixing conference on the use of these systems in humanitarian shelter. The conference will last 2 days, 9 and 10 April 2013, and is organized in Luxembourg. It will bring together shelter practitioners, anchor and fixing’s suppliers, academia and other professionals interested and operating in humanitarian shelter. The conference will be an unparalleled occasion to expand your knowledge on technical and material options for sheltering as well as to meet other practitioners and make contact to suppliers.
During the conference the IFRC-SRU will present test results of 32 different anchor-systems (for 5 different soil types and different loads) and a variety of fixing systems. Anchors can be an interesting solution for a whole range of constructions, from tents to T-shelters, larger tents an even water towers or antennas.
