Responding to the earthquake in Turkey/Syria:

Help deploy Emergency Floor

Help deploy Emergency Floor

Every Shelter will begin producing 1,500 tiles (760m2) weekly until we run out of funds. Our partners in Turkey will distribute them to families as part of their relief efforts there. Tents are in high supply but means to keep families warm and clean are not. We know many of these millions of displaced people will be in tents for years to come.

To date, we’ve raised over $186,000, more than enough to manufacture floors for over 1,240 shelters, but we’re continuing to raise. Because of the proximity of our manufacturing (Kütahya, Turkiye) and discounts from our manufacturer, we only need to raise $150 per shelter or $11,250 for a week’s manufacturing (75 shelters).

Please help us keep this production going–the need is so immense, and our floors make a lifesaving difference.

Please consider donating here if you can help.

Conservative estimates suggest that over 2,000,000 Turkish citizens are unhoused at the moment. We have no accurate estimation for what that number might be inside Syria, but we expect equivalently bad. 

Our partners on the ground in Turkey and Syria are working as hard as they can to respond, and we know that the manufacturing facility where we produce our floors (in Turkey) is operational and can take a production order from us. 

It’s the middle of winter and it is incredibly cold there. Our floors are an instant thermal barrier and can be the difference on a cold night between warmth and hypothermia and death. 

It takes approximately $150 dollars to install floors in one family’s shelter. Please consider donating as we join hands with the global emergency response of this tragedy.

Emergency Floor is Every Shelter’s first product solution, and it’s making an impact across the globe.

Product Details

Emergency Floor is a quickly deployable, lightweight, insulated flooring system perfect for winterization efforts. It is intuitive to install and requires no tools. In most settings, an entire install can be completed in fewer than 10 minutes by first time installers. It can be installed on the ground, on concrete slabs, and even on shipping pallets or sand bags. Each tile weighs approximately 0.6 kg and covers .5 m2 each, meaning they are easily handled and great for logistically challenging camp settings. They ship 1,344 per ISO 20 and 2,822 per ISO 40.

Most Affordable Solution

No other solution available offers the same value of our floors. It is the perfect solution for your next shelter improvement project.

Compatible with Existing Shelters

Emergency Floor tiles may easily be cut with a utility knife to dodge any impediment and create a custom fit in any shelter on the market.

Non-Permanent Shelter Improvement

Many host countries insist that improvements made are non-permanent. Though Emergency Floor will last through years of abuse, it installs and uninstalls in minutes. It can be moved easily if a camp needs to relocate.

Reduces Heating Fuel Expenses by Up to 20%

Made from a very durable insulating material primarily found in the automotive industry, Emergency Floor provides an R4 insulative value where you need it most. Our floors can pay for themselves in less than 2 years.

Reduces Medical Needs and Expenses

Initial research indicates that replacing dirt floors with Emergency Floor could improve cognitive development in children and reduce parasitic infections by 78%, instances of diarrhea by 49%, and anemia by 81%.

Promotes Higher Morale in Camp Settings

Comfortable and easily cleaned, Emergency Floor brings a much higher level of dignity to families than a standard dirt floor.

What’s the best way to keep a tent warm in the winter? Current methods primarily include issuing more blankets, insulating two or more walls, and providing a diesel stove. These definitely help but another critical element is still lacking: flooring.

Conflict in Syria, and the resultant mass exodus of its residents fleeing for safety, has greatly affected its neighbors, especially Lebanon. Of the 5.6 million people who have fled Syria since 2011, more than 1 million have settled in Lebanon. For a country with a total population of only 6 million residents, the strain of hosting a drastic influx of refugees has taken a toll on its infrastructure and resources.
