Kizilay Winter Tent: Winter Tent Final Design

The original 16m2 Kizilay tent was developed by Kizilay (Turkish Red Crescent). Its tent factory produces reinforced tents and other shelter products, such as rub-halls of various sizes. The National Society has distributed 6,068 tarpaulins aiming to provide tents better insulation during the winter season. Also, the total number of tents distributed is 65.602 and the total number of tarpaulins distributed in camps is 25.956. By early November 2013, with international support, the NS has distributed some 33,240 tents (including replacements for damaged ones that are not double-counted): these tents have been designed to endure harsh winter and weather conditions in camps.

The IFRC-SRU on behalf of LRC-AI shall deliver technical consultancy services to TRC in order to jointly design a winter tent solution to be used in the Syrian crisis response, based on the winterization solution already in use in TRC tents. Special attention was dedicated to improving thermal comfort, as thermal comfort is one of the principal factors for beneficiary satisfaction and also has effects on beneficiary health. Furthermore conduct technical testing of the tent, to establish technical performance criteria.

This program aims to improve the thermal behavior of light shelters distributed therefore provide a better quality of life while significantly reducing fuel consumption per heating putting these tents.

This report presents the final choices and descriptions of the composition of the 16m2 winter tent from Kizilay. This proposed winter tent is a feasible and fast emergency shelter, adapted to moderate winter climates.
