The most commonly used textile in the humanitarian sheltering world is simple tarpaulin of a certain strength and thickness. There is a great diversity of technical textiles that may be relevant for the diversity of needs in humanitarian sheltering. Textiles could be used that cater more to a specific climate or usage. Also, technical textiles with higher tensile strength, higher insulation properties, lighter weight, higher or lesser degrees of transparency could be introduced to mediate some other recurring problems faced during sheltering operations. Not only the performance of the textile itself plays a role in this, also the fixing modalities are of importance. During this display session, Sioen presented some of its latest product developments.
