This also allows for the absolute most ventilation of any storm shelter on the market today. 4 hinges, 3 class/grade 1 commercial deadbolt locks, and 2 SOLID 1″x1″ bars in 4 places, double skinned, 400+ lbs. door. Simply awesome!!! 11 total points of attachment.
Only FamilySAFE has permission from the HILTI Company for their logo use.
Anchorage is important. Too little and you lose strength,too many and you weaken the slab. Like putting too many nails into a board.
FamilySAFE’s anchors are not too close to cause cracks in between the holes over time and enough to double (or triple) what is required for even the EF5. THE ONLY STORM SHELTER TO HAVE ANCHORAGE PATTERN DESIGNED BY HILTI. We ARE the most experienced, best trained safe room / tornado shelter company in the United States.
FamilySAFE uses Class/Grade 1 commercial hardware with choices available.
It is some of the best hardware available in the US. Like a different hardware? Just let us know and we can outfit your safe room with your choice as well.
FamilySAFE has been tested by Texas Tech. University, twice (1999 & 2011).
The only tornado shelter company to be tested with a person inside the unit. If the storm shelter has not seen Texas Tech. it could be because Texas Tech. may not pass it. Never assume, always ask for the paperwork!
FamilySAFE has full-P.E. engineered drawings and blueprints.
Three independent engineering firms as well as HILTI engineers have signed and stamped familySAFE’s drawings and blueprints to meet and exceed not only all of FEMA and Texas Tech’s requirements, but also every state in the union. Two of the engineers were/are the lead engineers for the National Storm Shelter Association (NSSA), James McDonald and Ron F. Hansing.
FamilySAFE strives to meet or exceed the requirements of…
In the year 2000 there was an organization formed by Texas Tech. and a handful of companies and agencies to set standards for shelter companies that would exceed both FEMA’s and Texas Tech.’s standards. They would look at things such as anchorage, strength, and integrity of the storm shelters. FamilySAFE was one of only four private companies that helped form NSSA because we believe there should be strong standards for the industry.
FamilySAFE is a debt free award winning company.
Our lifetime warranty is backed by a company that will be there for the lifetime of your safe room. We have received several awards from the Better Business Bureau over the course of our lifetime.
When considering a storm shelter and the cost of a safe room, you must compare apples to apples. The difference counts when you and your family’s life is on the line.
