Tornado Safe Rooms are one of the highest tested and certified storm shelters in the United States, tested and certified by Certified Testing Laboratories of Orlando, Florida, a Miami-Dade County approved testing laboratory and has been tested to meet and surpass the FEMA Storm Shelter Testing Requirements.It has been tested to withstand wind loads of 450 mph and to withstand the 100 mph projectile test.

They also passed gun shot tests using 38 special, 380, 9 mm and 45 automatic military weapons from a distance of 15' without any penetration.

This room is manufactured with a low profile which, because of its' low height, catches less wind load, and making it much stronger and safer than taller rooms.

For example, our 2 person low profile storm shelters are anchored in place by special concrete anchor bolts each having a minimum of 7,252 pounds of tension strength. What this means to you is that this room is held in place by more than 112,000 lbs of holding power. (That is equal to 56 tons holding this room in place).
