Tornado Tech Above Ground Storm Shelters in Moore
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 shield doubles as a safe room for houses and community structures in Moore.
In the last ten years we’ve seen strong enough storms rip through the Midwest to justify the need for one in every Moore 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. Following 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 used as a secure room for keeping personal items, and a safe room in case 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 installed underneath the parking area of their 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 in your Moore property, indoors and out. Installing your above ground shelter outdoors and away from the foundation of the home will take a professional to pour a concrete slab for the construction to be mounted on. If properly poured and secured, 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. Being able to access the shelter for alternative 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 may seal nearly air tight around the floor 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.
Storm Shelter Features
The FlatSafe Tornado Tech above ground storm shelters are sold and installed in Moore. They feature layered elastic steel walls, concurrent anchoring procedures, evenly distributed 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 methods, the Tornado Tech Shelter utilizes the same engineering methodology utilized in the aircraft industry. It’s commonly referred to as redundant technology, and it ensures a backup process is standing by in case the primary system fails. Some of the essential elements include in-home accessibility, good ventilation, impact strength, secure anchoring, secure entry, and emergency egress.
Below are some additional 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 security, we set the standard in above ground safe rooms.
- Evenly Distributed Ventilation
Shielded ventilation vents dispersed throughout the Tornado Tech Shelter provides substantial oxygen and pressure exchange capacity.
- 640lb dual swing (in or out) doorways
Emergency egress is made especially easier when a shelters doors swing in or out. Additionally, Tornado Tech’s doors are substantially stronger than most safe rooms. Tornado Tech’s Saferoom doors weigh 320lbs each, they have rounded edges, and hinges which extend the length of the door to stop jamming following a major impact.
- Redundant Anchoring
Considering the substantial 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.
