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 set up in the house, garage, or basement. The Tornado Tech storm shield doubles as a safe room for homes and community structures in Holdenville.
In the past ten years we’ve seen powerful enough storms rip through the Midwest to justify the need for one in every Holdenville home. The major tornadoes back in 2010 were a real life example of how effective 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. Following are some of the added 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 may also be utilized as a secure 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 easily accessible. Frequently time underground storm shelters are set up beneath the parking area 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 in your Holdenville property, inside and out. Installing your above ground shelter outdoors and off the foundation of the residence will take a professional 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 resisting 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 provide a kind of security not found in the underground shelters. The above ground units may seal almost air tight around the floor level, preventing unwanted guests from 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 are often as dangerous as the storms.
