Tornado Tech Above Ground Storm Shelters in Henryetta
FlatSafe’s premier above ground storm shelter (Tornado Tech) has been impact tested for E-5 states by independent engineering companies. This above ground storm shelter can be installed in the house, garage, or basement. The Tornado Tech storm shelter doubles as a safe room for houses and community structures in Henryetta.
In the past ten years we’ve seen strong enough storms rip through the Midwest to justify the need for one in every Henryetta 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.
When compared 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 emergency. If installed in the home, they can also be utilized as a secure room for keeping personal items, and a secure room in the event of a home invasion. Installing the shelter at the garage is also an option, and even more readily accessible. Often time underground storm shelters are set up underneath the parking area of their residence vehicle. This can be a problem accessing the lid if you’re limited on time.
- Installing Your Shelter
The Tornado Tech above ground storm shelter can be installed just about anywhere in your Henryetta property, indoors and out. Installing your above ground shelter outdoors and off the base of the home will take an expert to pour a concrete slab for the construction to be mounted on. If properly 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 secure 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 may seal nearly air tight around the floor 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. 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 Henryetta. They feature layered elastic steel walls, concurrent anchoring procedures, evenly dispersed ventilation, and dual swing (in or out) doors with top to bottom ‘continuous’ hinges make the Tornado Tech Storm Shelter the new standard in above ground storm shelters.
Utilizing proven manufacturing procedures, the Tornado Tech Shelter employs the same engineering methodology found in the aircraft industry. It’s commonly called redundant engineering, and it ensures a backup system is standing by in case the primary system fails. Some of the key elements include in-home accessibility, good ventilation, impact strength, secure anchoring, secure entry, and emergency egress.
Below are some extra features of the Tornado Tech Storm Shelter.
- Two Steel Walls
More flexible than concrete and more than strong 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 substantial oxygen and pressure exchange capability.
- 640lb double swing (in or out) doorways
Emergency egress is made especially easier when a shelters doors swing in or out. Also, 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 which extend the duration of the door to stop jamming following a significant impact.
- Redundant Anchoring
Considering the significant value of anchoring an above ground tornado shelter, Tornado Tech uses more than 1 method to secure our shelters. An epoxy adhesive coupled with large diameter tapcons provides a backup approach to your security.
