This above ground storm shelter can be installed in the home, garage, or basement. The Tornado Tech storm shield doubles as a safe room for homes and community structures in Noble.
In the past ten years we have seen powerful enough storms rip through the Midwest to justify the need for one in every Noble 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 additional benefits to consider when buying an above ground storm shelter.
Advantages 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 house, they may also be used as a safe 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. Often time underground storm shelters are set up beneath the parking area of the residence vehicle. This is sometimes a problem accessing the lid if you’re limited in time.
- Installing Your Shelter
The Tornado Tech above ground storm shelter can be installed just about anywhere in your Noble property, indoors and outside. Installing your above ground shelter outdoors and away from the base of the residence will require 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 secure 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 safety not found in the underground shelters. The above ground units can 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.
