Tornado Tech Above Ground Storm Shelters in Anadarko
FlatSafe’s premier above ground storm shelter (Tornado Tech) has been impact tested for E-5 states by independent engineering companies. This above ground storm shelter can be set up in the home, garage, or basement. The Tornado Tech storm shelter doubles as a secure room for homes and community structures in Anadarko.
In the past ten years we have seen powerful enough storms rip through the Midwest to justify the need for one in every Anadarko home. The major tornadoes back in 2010 were a real life example of how successful these storm shelters could be at saving the lives of families across Oklahoma.
When compared to the effectiveness of underground storm shelters, the above ground models have stood tall in the face of the storm. Below are some of the additional benefits to consider when buying an above ground storm shelter.
Advantages Of Above Ground Storm Shelters
- Accessing Your Shelter
The above ground storm shelters allow for quick access in case of a last minute crisis. If installed in the house, they can also be used as a safe room for storing personal items, and a safe room in case of a home invasion. Installing the shelter at the garage is also an option, and also more easily accessible. Often time underground storm shelters are installed beneath the parking space of the residence vehicle. This is sometimes a problem accessing the lid if you are limited in time.
- Installing Your Shelter
The Tornado Tech above ground storm shelter can be installed just about anywhere in your Anadarko property, indoors and outside. Installing your above ground shelter outdoors and off the base of the home will take a professional to pour a concrete slab for the structure to be mounted on. If properly poured and secured, the above ground storm shelters are tested and capable of resisting F-5 conditions. The above ground shelters may also be emptied, where as the underground shelters are permanent (or should be).
- Safety and Connivence
The Tornado Tech above ground storm shelter can double as a secure and storage unit while not in use. Having the ability to get into the shelter for alternate use is a connivence not found in the underground storm shelters. The above ground shelters also offer a form of safety not found in the underground shelters. The above ground units can seal almost air tight round the ground level, preventing unwanted guests from slithering or crawling in. The underground components feature ventilation panels that allow easy access at ground level for unwanted guests. Depending on where you live, these guests can be as dangerous as the storms.
