Tornado Tech Above Ground Storm Shelters in Grove
FlatSafe’s premier above ground storm shelter (Tornado Tech) has been impact tested for E-5 conditions by independent engineering firms. 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 houses and community structures in Grove.
In the last ten years we have seen powerful enough storms rip through the Midwest to justify the need for one in every Grove home. The significant tornadoes back in 2010 were a real life example of how effective 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 additional benefits to consider when purchasing 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 home, they can also be utilized as a secure 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 even more easily accessible. Frequently time underground storm shelters are installed beneath the parking space of the residence vehicle. This is sometimes an issue 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 Grove property, indoors and outside. Installing your above ground shelter outdoors and off the foundation of the home will require an expert to pour a concrete slab for the construction 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 safe and storage unit while not in use. Having the ability to access the shelter for alternate use is a connivence not found in the underground storm shelters. The above ground shelters also offer a kind 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 components 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.
