Tornado Tech Above Ground Storm Shelters in Purcell
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 home, garage, or basement. The Tornado Tech storm shelter doubles as a safe room for houses and community structures in Purcell.
In the past ten years we have seen powerful enough storms rip through the Midwest to justify the need for one in every Purcell 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 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 crisis. If installed in the home, they can also be used as a safe room for storing personal items, and a secure room in the event of a home invasion. Installing the shelter at the garage is also an option, and also more easily accessible. Frequently time underground storm shelters are set up underneath the parking area of their 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 Purcell property, indoors and outside. Installing your above ground shelter outdoors and off the foundation of the home will require an expert to pour a concrete slab for the construction to be mounted on. If correctly poured and procured, the above ground storm shelters are analyzed and capable of withstanding 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 secure and storage unit while not in use. Being able to access the shelter for alternative use is a connivence not found in the underground storm shelters. The above ground shelters also provide a kind of safety not found in the underground shelters. The above ground units may seal almost air tight round the ground level, preventing unwanted guests from slithering or crawling in. The underground units feature ventilation panels that allow easy access at ground level for unwanted guests. Depending on where you live, these guests are often as dangerous as the storms.
