Advantages Of Above Ground Storm Shelters
- Accessing Your Shelter
The above ground storm shelters allow for quick access in the event of a last minute crisis. If installed in the house, they may also be utilized as a secure room for keeping personal items, and a safe 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 installed underneath the parking space of their residence vehicle. This is sometimes 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 Wagoner property, inside and outside. Installing your above ground shelter outdoors and away from the foundation 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 can also be emptied, where as the underground shelters are permanent (or should be).

The Tornado Tech above ground storm shelter can double as a secure and storage unit while not in use. Being able to get into the shelter for alternate use is a connivence not found in the underground storm shelters.

The above ground units may seal almost air tight around the floor level, preventing unwanted guests out of slithering or crawling in. The underground units feature ventilation panels which allow easy access at ground level for unwanted guests. Depending on where you live, these guests can be as dangerous as the storms.
