Tornado Tech Above Ground Storm Shelters in Perry
FlatSafe’s premier above ground storm shelter (Tornado Tech) has been impact tested for E-5 states by independent engineering companies. This above ground storm shelter can be set up in the house, garage, or basement. The Tornado Tech storm shelter doubles as a safe room for houses and community structures in Perry.
In the past ten years we’ve seen powerful enough storms rip through the Midwest to justify the need for one in every Perry home. The significant 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. Below are some of the added 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 crisis. If installed in the home, they may also be utilized as a safe room for storing personal items, and a safe room in case of a home invasion. Installing the shelter in the garage is also an option, and also more easily accessible. Often time underground storm shelters are set up beneath the parking area 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 on your Perry property, indoors and outside. Installing your above ground shelter outdoors and away from the base of the home will take an expert to pour a concrete slab for the structure to be mounted on. If correctly poured and procured, 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. Being able to get into 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 which allow easy access at ground level for unwanted guests. Depending on where you live, these guests are often as dangerous as the storms.
Storm Shelter Features
The FlatSafe Tornado Tech above ground storm shelters are sold and installed in Perry. 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 procedures, the Tornado Tech Shelter employs the identical engineering methodology found in the aircraft industry. It’s commonly called redundant technology, and it ensures a backup system is standing by in case the primary system fails. Some of the key elements include in-home accessibility, proper ventilation, impact strength, secure anchoring, secure entry, and emergency egress.
Here are a few 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 safe 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 capacity.
- 640lb double swing (in or out) doors
Emergency egress is made notably simpler when a shelters doors swing in or out. Additionally, 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 significant impact.
- Redundant Anchoring
Thinking about the significant importance of anchoring an above ground tornado shelter, Tornado Tech utilizes more than 1 method to secure our shelters. An epoxy adhesive combined with large diameter tapcons provides a backup approach to your security.
