Tornado Tech Above Ground Storm Shelters in Mustang
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 set up in the home, garage, or basement. The Tornado Tech storm shield doubles as a secure room for homes and community structures in Mustang.
In the past ten years we’ve seen powerful enough storms rip through the Midwest to justify the need for one in every Mustang 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. Below 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 can also be used as a safe room for keeping personal items, and a secure room in case of a home invasion. Installing the shelter at the garage is also an option, and even more easily accessible. Often time underground storm shelters are set up beneath the parking space of the residence vehicle. This can be 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 Mustang property, indoors and outside. Installing your above ground shelter outdoors and off the base of the home will require a professional to pour a concrete slab for the construction to be mounted on. If correctly poured and secured, the above ground storm shelters are tested and capable of resisting 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. 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 form 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 components 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.
Storm Shelter Features
The FlatSafe Tornado Tech above ground storm shelters are sold and installed in Mustang. They feature layered elastic steel walls, concurrent anchoring methods, evenly distributed ventilation, and dual swing (in or out) doors with top to bottom ‘constant’ hinges make the Tornado Tech Storm Shelter the new standard in above ground storm shelters.
Utilizing proven manufacturing methods, the Tornado Tech Shelter employs the same engineering methodology found in the aircraft industry. It’s commonly called redundant technology, and it ensures a backup process is standing by in case the primary system fails. Some of the key elements include in-home access, good venting, impact strength, secure anchoring, secure entry, and emergency egress.
Here 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 secure zone protection, 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 capability.
- 640lb dual swing (in or out) doors
Emergency egress is made especially easier when a shelters doors swing in or out. Also, 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 that extend the duration of the door to prevent jamming following a major impact.
- Redundant Anchoring
Thinking about the significant value of anchoring an above ground tornado shelter, Tornado Tech utilizes more than 1 method to secure our shelters. An epoxy adhesive coupled with large diameter tapcons provides a backup approach to your safety.
Depending on where you reside in Mustang, the installed cost of a Tornado Tech shelter varies. We respect your privacy and only need an email address and an installment zip code to provide a no obligation quote for a standard installation in an existing residential garage.
