Tornado Tech Above Ground Storm Shelters in Yukon
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 installed in the home, garage, or basement. The Tornado Tech storm shelter doubles as a safe room for houses and community structures in Yukon.
In the last ten years we’ve seen strong enough storms rip through the Midwest to justify the need for one in every Yukon home. The major 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 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 the event of a last minute crisis. If installed in the home, they may also be used as a secure room for keeping personal items, and a safe room in case of a home invasion. Installing the shelter at the garage is also an option, and even more easily accessible. Frequently time underground storm shelters are installed beneath the parking area of the residence vehicle. This is sometimes an issue 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 on your Yukon property, indoors and out. Installing your above ground shelter outdoors and off the base of the home will require a professional 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 can 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 secure and storage unit while not in use. Being able 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 security not found in the underground shelters. The above ground units can 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 can be as dangerous as the storms.
