Tornado Tech Above Ground Storm Shelters in Del City
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 installed in the home, garage, or basement. The Tornado Tech storm shield doubles as a secure room for homes and community structures in Del City.
In the last ten years we have seen powerful enough storms rip through the Midwest to justify the need for one in every Del City home. The major tornadoes back in 2010 were a real life example of how successful these storm shelters can 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 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 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 in the garage is also an option, and also more readily accessible. Frequently time underground storm shelters are installed underneath the parking space of their residence vehicle. This is sometimes a problem accessing the lid if you are limited on time.
- Installing Your Shelter
The Tornado Tech above ground storm shelter can be installed just about anywhere on your Del City property, indoors and out. Installing your above ground shelter outdoors and off the foundation of the residence will take an expert to pour a concrete slab for the structure to be mounted on. If properly poured and procured, the above ground storm shelters are analyzed and capable of withstanding 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. 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 security not found in the underground shelters. The above ground units may seal nearly air tight round the floor level, preventing unwanted guests out of slithering or crawling in. The underground units feature ventilation panels which allow easy access at ground level for unwanted guests. Based on where you live, these guests can be as dangerous as the storms.
Storm Shelter Features
The FlatSafe Tornado Tech above ground storm shelters are sold and installed in Del City. They feature layered flexible steel walls, concurrent anchoring methods, evenly dispersed ventilation, and double 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 found in the aircraft industry. It’s commonly referred to as redundant technology, and it ensures a backup process is standing by in case the primary system fails. Some of the key elements include in-home accessibility, proper venting, impact strength, secure anchoring, secure entrance, 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 impact layer and safe zone protection, we set the standard in above ground safe rooms.
- Evenly Distributed Ventilation
Shielded ventilation ports dispersed throughout the Tornado Tech Shelter supplies significant oxygen and pressure exchange capability.
- 640lb double swing (in or out) doors
Emergency egress is made notably easier when a shelters doors swing in or out. Additionally, Tornado Tech’s doors are considerably stronger than many safe rooms. Tornado Tech’s Saferoom doors weigh 320lbs each, they have rounded edges, and hinges that extend the length of the door to stop jamming following a significant impact.
- Redundant Anchoring
Thinking about the significant importance 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 security.
