Tornado Tech Above Ground Storm Shelters in Lone Grove
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 home, garage, or basement. The Tornado Tech storm shelter doubles as a safe room for homes and community structures in Lone Grove.
In the past ten years we have seen powerful enough storms rip through the Midwest to justify the need for one in every Lone Grove 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 purchasing 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 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 also more easily accessible. Often 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 in time.
- Installing Your Shelter
The Tornado Tech above ground storm shelter can be installed just about anywhere on your Lone Grove property, indoors and out. Installing your above ground shelter outdoors and away from 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 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 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 kind of security not found in the underground shelters. The above ground units may seal almost 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. Depending on where you live, these guests can be as dangerous as the storms.
