We were one of the very first, in the above ground storm shelter industry.

Please notice, that we have a United States trademark on the word "TornadoSafeRoom" and also we have the website , which further indicates that we had to have been in this business longer than most all other competitors.

In past years, more than 1,000 twisters killed in excess of 120 people and created millions of dollars in property damage. The dollar figure for the tornadoes which struck Oklahoma City in May of 1999 has exceeded 90 million dollars.

The National Tornado Forum has announced an effort to encourage more people to build "safe rooms" The head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) stated, "When that tornado warning comes, people need to put their family in a safe place". .

In an effort to see that more people are protected FEMA, along with the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae), have programs in place which assist families with financing for their "Safe Rooms". FEMA director, James Witt, said, "We know that safe rooms save lives". Responding to this call for saving lives, we designed a tornado-safe room (hence TORNADOSAFEROOM). Our units are manufactured from solid 10 gauge steel construction. The safe rooms may be installed in the interior of structures with concrete flooring or exterior of any type of structure, commercial or residential including pre-manufactured homes and mobile homes

 Knowledge and protection are the keys to saving lives.

The following explanations will help you when the weather alerts are sounded.

Tornado Watch - this alert is issued when weather conditions are 'ripe' for the formation of a tornado. When these are issued, your preparations for safety should begin

Tornado Warning - this means that a funnel cloud has actually been sighted or radar has indicated a tornado. Be ready.

Along with these definitions the Fujita Pearson Tornado Scale will give you an under-standing of the potential of the coming storm. Note the estimated damage done as the F rating goes up. The tornado which devastated Oklahoma City was an F-5.

Fujita Pearson Tornado Scale

F-0:40-72 mph, chimney damage, tree branches broken,
F-1:73-112 mph, mobile homes pushed off foundation or overturned.
F-2:113-I57 mph. considerable damage, mobile homes demolished, trees up-rooted.
F-3: 158-205 mph, roofs and walls torn down, trains overturned, cars thrown.
F-4:207-260 mph, well-constructed walls leveled.
F-5:261-318 mph, homes lifted off their foundations and carried considerable distances, auto thrown as far as 328 feet.

Tornados can and do occur, anywhere when weather conditions create the right formula.
Tornadoes have been recorded with wind speeds over 300 m.p.h. and staying on the ground for more than an hour. Flying debris presents one of the greatest dangers during Tornadoe's
