Concrete Canvas Inflatable

concretecanvasProduces by the company Concrete Canvas in the UK

Concrete Canvas is a flexible concrete impregnated fabric that hardens on hydration to form a thin, durable water proof and fire-resistant concrete layer.  Essentially, it’s concrete on a roll.

Concrete Canvas Shelters are rapidly deployable hardened shelters that require only water and air for construction.

They fabricate inflatable concrete shelters that harden over night so you can stand on (50sqm): you receive the pack – you pump 900L water in the package – you connect a small blower to inflate it – you pull the canvas bag apart by a car while inflating it totally – you wait – it’s done.
