Tornado Tech Above Ground Storm Shelters in Pauls Valley
FlatSafe’s premier above ground storm shelter (Tornado Tech) has been impact tested for E-5 conditions by independent engineering companies. This above ground storm shelter can be installed in the house, garage, or basement. The Tornado Tech storm shelter doubles as a secure room for homes and community structures in Pauls Valley.
In the past ten years we’ve seen powerful enough storms rip through the Midwest to justify the need for one in every Pauls Valley 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.
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 additional benefits to consider when buying 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 emergency. If installed in the home, they may also be utilized as a safe room for keeping personal items, and a secure room in case of a home invasion. Installing the shelter in the garage is also an option, and also more readily accessible. Frequently time underground storm shelters are set up underneath the parking area of their residence vehicle. This can be an issue accessing the lid if you are limited in time.
- Installing Your Shelter
The Tornado Tech above ground storm shelter can be installed just about anywhere in your Pauls Valley property, inside and out. Installing your above ground shelter outdoors and off the base of the residence will require an expert 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 resisting 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. Having the ability to get into the shelter for alternate use is a connivence not found in the underground storm shelters. The above ground shelters also offer a form of security not found in the underground shelters. The above ground units can seal nearly air tight around the ground 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 are often as dangerous as the storms.
