Tornado Tech Above Ground Storm Shelters in Tecumseh
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 set up in the home, garage, or basement. The Tornado Tech storm shield doubles as a safe room for homes and community structures in Tecumseh.
In the last ten years we’ve seen powerful enough storms rip through the Midwest to justify the need for one in every Tecumseh 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. Below are some of the added benefits to consider when purchasing an above ground storm shelter.
Advantages 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 house, they may also be utilized as a secure room for storing 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. Often time underground storm shelters are set up underneath the parking space of their residence vehicle. This can be 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 Tecumseh property, inside and out. Installing your above ground shelter outdoors and away from the base of the residence will take a professional to pour a concrete slab for the structure to be mounted on. If correctly poured and secured, the above ground storm shelters are analyzed and capable of resisting 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. Being able to access the shelter for alternative use is a connivence not found in the underground storm shelters. The above ground shelters also offer a form of safety not found in the underground shelters. The above ground units may seal nearly air tight round 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. Depending on where you live, these guests are often as dangerous as the storms.
