TornadoSafeRoomT will give you and your family a quick, convenient and absolutely
safe place to hide when you hear the storm warning. The TornadoSafeRoomT
is a certified tested, site-assembled, above ground
shelter. Having your own TornadoSafeRoomT in your garage
(and still have room for your car) or just outside the door of your home gives
you ready access, comfort and peace of mind, knowing you are prepared.
The TornadoSafeRoomT gives you absolute peace of mind because it has been tested and certified by an independent construction material testing laboratory, by static wind load to 450 miles per hour. That is more than 100 miles per hour stronger than the highest known twister. (The Moores/Oklahoma City twister was a 319 mile per hour twister). If you buy someone's 250 mile per hour shelter, will you fear that the impending storm might just be another strong one like the twister of Moores and be stronger than your safe room?

give you total peace of mind.
- Should be able to be installed inside the perimeters of your ability to
access it quickly.
door should have 3 or more latches.
- Must be anchored securely so that large flying debris cannot knock it
over. Expansion type anchor bolts are not suitable for storm shelters.

as big a problem as the approaching storm.
door locks should operate so that no one can be locked in or locked out.
the tornado warning is issued, there may not be time for your family to run to
a community shelter, and if you have pets, you have an additional problem. With
one of our TornadoSafeRooms on your property, either inside your home or just
outside your door, you have only to gather your family, pets and even important
papers and pictures and take shelter "right at home".
Tornados normally are seasonal. Usually the months of March through June
are our most active. News Media report 20% of all twisters occur during the months
of July through October and less than 10% are seen during November through January.
There are exceptions however. Some of the most destructive in recent years happened
in January and February in Alabama, Tennessee and Mississippi.
does this mean to you...?
You MUST be prepared because you never know when your life will be threatened.
forecasts for the 21st century are out and more active storms are predicted. Plan
now for your family's health and well being. Do not wait until the last minute
to secure your very own personal shelter.
