Introduction to users' guide

This guide is intended to assist those responsible for procuring emergency food stores in selecting an appropriate system. It outlines the factors to be considered, most of which have been more fully discussed in Part 1, and provides a decision tree to help in making a choice. Manufacturers of structures are listed and their products described, under four categories.

A Warehouses B Frameless buildings C Framed structures with flexible cladding D Frameless flexible systems.

This guide assumes that the structures, or critical components of them, are imported; however, there will be times when structures can be locally manufactured, thereby probably reducing the procurement time.
