"...Whether dealing with violent deaths in major disasters or in armed conflict, issues
concerning the socio-cultural order of a community are valid. The inability to perform rituals
condemns a family to a second death: the symbolic death of their loved one for the
lack of a tomb that perpetuates his or her name and confers social worth to the deceased
and his or her inclusion in the generational continuity of a family."
LR16 is focusing on the upcoming problems of mass death during a natural disaster situation. The key issues are the non-biodegradable material usage, lack of ergonomical construction, safety and consideration of the emotional factors on the side of the relatives and the rescue workers. The LR16 coffin serves to minimize contact with infected corpses.Makes easier the storage of the bodies, fully biodegradable solid construction, and give the last respect to the deceased relatives.
