The dwelling in which the FlatSafe Tornado Shelter is located (the” Host Dwelling”) must be a residential dwelling in the United States.
The FlatSafe Tornado Shelter must be installed within the recommended location of the Host Dwelling. The recommended location for a FlatSafe Tornado Shelter is close to an outer wall and an overhead door in an attached garage. Placement inside the home during new construction is possible but NOT recommended. Installing a FlatSafe Tornado Shelter in a location NOT recommended could void the warranty in the event access for warranty repairs or service is obstructed or otherwise impaired. When installing a FlatSafe Tornado Shelter in a location NOT recommended, neither FlatSafe nor the FlatSafe representative shall be liable for any damages that occur during repair or replacement.
The FlatSafe Tornado Shelter must be installed in accordance with manufacturer’s published installation procedures, which require excavation into compacted soil, and proper placement of specific concrete to counteract buoyancy.
Consumer must provide proof of purchase of FlatSafe Tornado Shelter to manufacturer for warranty to be valid. If the warranty was validly transferred to an owner of the Host Dwelling, the owner of the Host Dwelling must provide proof of transfer of warranty to manufacturer for warranty to be valid.
The owner of the Host Dwelling must grant FlatSafe or its representative the right to access the installation site to inspect the installation process at any time a claim is made under this warranty.
Damage partly or wholly due to improper usage or handling by consumer or any other person or animal will NOT be covered by this warranty. A FlatSafe representative may repair such damage at Consumers request, but Consumer will be solely financially responsible for said repairs. FlatSafe is not responsible for any expense associated with repairing or replacing a FlatSafe Tornado Shelter installed in a location other than the recommended location.
In order to conduct warranty repairs, the FlatSafe Tornado Shelter must be easily accessible.
