Tornado Tech Above Ground Storm Shelters in Claremore
FlatSafe’s premier above ground storm shelter (Tornado Tech) has been impact tested for E-5 states by independent engineering firms. This above ground storm shelter can be set up in the house, garage, or basement. The Tornado Tech storm shelter doubles as a safe room for homes and community structures in Claremore.
In the past ten years we’ve seen powerful enough storms rip through the Midwest to justify the need for one in every Claremore 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. Following are some of the added benefits to consider when buying an above ground storm shelter.
Benefits Of Above Ground Storm Shelters
- Accessing Your Shelter
The above ground storm shelters allow for quick access in case of a last minute emergency. If installed in the house, they may also be utilized as a safe room for storing personal items, and a secure 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 set up underneath the parking space of their residence vehicle. This is sometimes a problem accessing the lid if you’re limited in time.
- Installing Your Shelter
The Tornado Tech above ground storm shelter can be installed just about anywhere in your Claremore property, indoors and out. Installing your above ground shelter outdoors and away from the foundation of the home will require an expert to pour a concrete slab for the construction to be mounted on. If correctly poured and secured, the above ground storm shelters are tested and capable of resisting F-5 conditions. The above ground shelters may also be relocated, where as the underground shelters are permanent (or should be).
- Safety and Connivence
The Tornado Tech above ground storm shelter can double as a safe and storage unit while not in use. Having the ability to get into the shelter for alternative use is a connivence not found in the underground storm shelters. The above ground shelters also provide a kind of security not found in the underground shelters. The above ground units can seal nearly 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.
