Tornado Tech Above Ground Storm Shelters in Muskogee
FlatSafe’s premier above ground storm shelter (Tornado Tech) has been impact tested for E-5 states by independent engineering firms. 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 houses and community structures in Muskogee.
In the last ten years we have seen strong enough storms rip through the Midwest to justify the need for one in every Muskogee 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.
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.
Benefits Of Above Ground Storm Shelters
- Accessing Your Shelter
The above ground storm shelters allow for quick access in case of a last minute crisis. If installed in the home, they may also be utilized as a secure room for keeping personal items, and a safe room in the event of a home invasion. Installing the shelter at the garage is also an option, and even more easily accessible. Frequently time underground storm shelters are set up underneath the parking space of the residence vehicle. This is sometimes an issue 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 Muskogee property, indoors and outside. Installing your above ground shelter outdoors and away from the base of the home 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 withstanding F-5 conditions. The above ground shelters can 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. Being able to access the shelter for alternate use is a connivence not found in the underground storm shelters. The above ground shelters also offer a form of safety not found in the underground shelters. The above ground units can seal almost air tight around the floor level, preventing unwanted guests from slithering or crawling in. The underground units feature ventilation panels that allow easy access at ground level for unwanted guests. Depending on where you live, these guests can be as dangerous as the storms.

It’s commonly called redundant engineering, and it ensures a backup process is standing by in case the primary system fails.
