Tornado Tech Above Ground Storm Shelters in Clinton
FlatSafe’s premier above ground storm shelter (Tornado Tech) has been impact tested for E-5 conditions by independent engineering companies. This above ground storm shelter can be set up in the house, garage, or basement. The Tornado Tech storm shield doubles as a safe room for houses and community structures in Clinton.
In the last ten years we have seen powerful enough storms rip through the Midwest to justify the need for one in every Clinton home. The significant 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.
In comparison 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.
Benefits Of Above Ground Storm Shelters
- Accessing Your Shelter
The above ground storm shelters allow for quick access in the event 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 readily accessible. Frequently time underground storm shelters are set up underneath the parking space of the residence vehicle. This can be 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 on your Clinton property, indoors and outside. Installing your above ground shelter outdoors and away from the foundation 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 analyzed and capable of withstanding F-5 conditions. The above ground shelters can 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. Being able 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 around the ground level, preventing unwanted guests out of slithering or crawling in. The underground units feature ventilation panels that allow easy access at ground level for unwanted guests. Depending on where you live, these guests are often as dangerous as the storms.
Storm Shelter Features

They feature layered flexible steel walls, concurrent anchoring procedures, evenly dispersed ventilation, and dual swing (in or out) doors with top to bottom ‘constant’ hinges make the Tornado Tech Storm Shelter the new standard in above ground storm shelters.
Utilizing proven manufacturing methods, the Tornado Tech Shelter utilizes the same engineering methodology utilized in the aircraft industry. It’s commonly called redundant technology, and it ensures a backup system is standing by in case the primary system fails. Some of the essential elements include in-home access, proper venting, impact strength, secure anchoring, secure entry, and emergency egress.
Here are some extra features of the Tornado Tech Storm Shelter.
- Two Steel Walls
More flexible than concrete and more than powerful enough to protect an occupant. With both effect layer and safe zone security, we set the standard in above ground safe rooms.
- Evenly Distributed Ventilation
Shielded ventilation ports dispersed throughout the Tornado Tech Shelter provides substantial oxygen and pressure exchange capability.
- 640lb double swing (in or out) doorways
Emergency egress is made notably simpler when a shelters doors swing in or out. Additionally, Tornado Tech’s doors are substantially stronger than many safe rooms. Tornado Tech’s Saferoom doors weigh 320lbs each, they have rounded edges, and hinges which extend the length of the door to prevent jamming following a significant impact.
- Redundant Anchoring
Thinking about the substantial value of anchoring an above ground tornado shelter, Tornado Tech utilizes more than one method to secure our shelters. An epoxy adhesive coupled with large diameter tapcons provides a backup approach to your safety.
