Tornado Tech Above Ground Storm Shelters in Tuttle
FlatSafe’s premier above ground storm shelter (Tornado Tech) has been impact tested for E-5 conditions by independent engineering firms. This above ground storm shelter can be set up in the home, garage, or basement. The Tornado Tech storm shelter doubles as a secure room for homes and community structures in Tuttle.
In the last ten years we’ve seen strong enough storms rip through the Midwest to justify the need for one in every Tuttle home. The significant tornadoes back in 2010 were a real life example of how successful 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. Following are some of the added benefits to consider when purchasing 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 may also be used as a secure room for keeping personal items, and a secure room in case of a home invasion. Installing the shelter at the garage is also an option, and also more readily accessible. Frequently time underground storm shelters are installed underneath the parking space of their residence vehicle. This can be a problem accessing the lid if you’re limited on time.
- Installing Your Shelter
The Tornado Tech above ground storm shelter can be installed just about anywhere in your Tuttle property, inside and out. Installing your above ground shelter outdoors and away from the foundation of the residence will require an expert to pour a concrete slab for the construction to be mounted on. If properly poured and procured, the above ground storm shelters are analyzed and capable of resisting 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 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 provide a form of security not found in the underground shelters. The above ground units can seal almost 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.
