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.
Advantages 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 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 in the garage is also an option, and also more readily accessible. Often time underground storm shelters are installed beneath 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 Harrah property, indoors and out. Installing your above ground shelter outdoors and off the foundation of the residence will require 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 relocated, where as the underground shelters are permanent (or should be).

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 alternative use is a connivence not found in the underground storm shelters. The above ground shelters also provide a form of safety not found in the underground shelters. The above ground units may seal nearly air tight around the ground level, preventing unwanted guests out of slithering or crawling in. The underground components 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.
