Tornado Tech Above Ground Storm Shelters in Seminole
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 shield doubles as a safe room for homes and community structures in Seminole.
In the past ten years we’ve seen strong enough storms rip through the Midwest to justify the need for one in every Seminole home. The significant tornadoes back in 2010 were a real life example of how effective these storm shelters can 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.
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 house, they can 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 in the garage is also an option, and even more easily accessible. Frequently time underground storm shelters are installed underneath the parking space of the residence vehicle. This can be a problem 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 in your Seminole property, indoors and outside. Installing your above ground shelter outdoors and away from the base of the residence 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 withstanding 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 safe and storage unit while not in use. Having the ability to access the shelter for alternate 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 can seal nearly air tight round the floor level, preventing unwanted guests out of slithering or crawling in. The underground units feature ventilation panels that allow easy access at ground level for unwanted guests. Based on where you live, these guests are often as dangerous as the storms.
