HELPING FAMILIES PREPARE FOR THE NEXT ROUND…
Tornado shelters have saved the lives of thousands of individuals and families. Every year, tornadoes, and other extreme windstorms and thunderstorms injure and kill people.
Supercell Shelters can install an underground shelter or safe room for your home or small business that can help provide near complete protection for you and your family or employees – protection from injury or death caused by the paths of forceful tornadoes that are an ever-present danger in the Southern regions of the United States.
FEMA’s knowledge of tornadoes and storms is based on substantial meteorological records as well as extensive investigations of damage to buildings from extreme winds. Our “premium” protection means that, based on the current knowledge of tornadoes and storms, a Supercell Shelter built according to FEMA standards and guidelines, helps its occupants achieve a very high probablity of protection from injury or death.
Should you consider installing a Supercell Shelter in your home or small business to provide premium protection for you, your family, or employees during a tornado? The answer depends on your answers to some of these questions that FEMA asks you to consider:
- Do you live in a high-risk area?
- How quickly can you reach safe shelter during extreme winds?
- What level of safety do you want to provide?
- What is the cost of a shelter?
This site shows you how Supercell Shelter installs an underground shelter or safe room for your home or small business.Our premium quality shelters are designed with life safety as the primary consideration. Our shelters are located in the garage, carport, patio, or yard. Our shelters are trap resistant with a sliding ball-bearing door, and will be registered with local authorities to ensure your safe exit.
Engineering consultants and FEMA have defined the design requirements for the expected forces from wind pressure and the impact of typical flying debris. Supercell Shelter installation requirements are addressed by a local design professional, and the designs meet or exceed those set forth by FEMA for residential and small community shelters (less than 16 persons) for tornado hazards.
