Beware of ‘Copycat’ Safe Rooms!

In our search for the best storm shelters, tornado rooms and safe rooms on the market, we came across many “copycats.”   These companies took the designs of tested storm shelter manufacturers, took various shortcuts in their own manufacturing process and produced an inferior product. Without thorough research, however, the average customer cannot determine the difference.

Often times, these storm shelters and tornado safe rooms do not have doors that meet FEMA and Texas Tech University standards in either general construction or in locking mechanisms, among other deficiencies we found. saferoom lab testing Tornado Safe Room   All Weather Safe Rooms Some of these tornado safe room manufacturers claim they do on-site testing saying it’s not necessary to have their shelter tested by the reputable university standards…

These “copycat” manufacturers are taking your life into their hands by selling you an inferior product with no regard for your safety. Please, for your own sake, make sure the shelter your life or valuables are depending on is an approved, safe shelter.

The Wind Engineering Research Center at Texas Tech University applauds your company’s efforts in providing a safe product for the consumer.

The All Weather Safe Room is designed to be installed in new or existing construction.  They can easily be installed into the framing of the house or installed in your garage for quick and convenient access without ever having to go outside in extreme conditions.  If neither of these two options meet your needs, the All Weather tornado safe room can be installed outside of your home on a slab which meets specifications we will provide to you (some of our customers elect to install a tornado safe room over the top of an underground shelter, so we can do that for you too).

Our safe rooms are available in many different sizes to accomdate any family size or budget (common sizes we usually build are from 4′x4′ to 6′x8′, but we can build as large as the 10 x 50 community safe room size to as small as 3 foot 6 inches and anywhere in between, down to the inch) and can be professionally installed in as little as one hour in most cases.  With the added protection of the Medico locking deadbolt, you can be assured that your valuables will be protected should you decide to store them in your safe room (such as jewelry, guns, weapons, ammunition, precious metals, etc).

A safe room or storm shelter is something you hope you never need.  It is also something you don’t want to wish you had when it’s already too late…

  1. Wow, this article is nice, my sister is analyzing these things, therefore I am going to tell her.

  2. David says:

    What are the sizes and prices of your safe rooms that can be installed in an existing garage?

    • Hans Schoff says:

      Hey David, our All Weather Safe Rooms for install inside a garage start at $4,000 installed for a 4×4 standard safe room. We can build them as large as 10×50 (which hold up to 100 people), the type we build for community shelters. If you have a specific size in mind, just call us at 256-258-WIND for other prices or information

  3. I want to also get a estimate on the 5×8 saferoom i’m in Memphis tennessee.Thanks

  4. Kristin says:

    Do you install these safe rooms in VA? If not do you know of a company that can get me one. I worry about my family and this room would set our minds at ease.

  5. Donna says:

    How many people can fit in the above-ground 4×4 shelter?

    • Hans Schoff says:

      Donna, FEMA suggests 5 square feet per person roughly so say 3 adults (4×4=16sf /5 =3+). You could pack more people in there than that, especially kids, but that’s a rule of thumb. If you have 4 or more adults, I’d suggest going up to the 4×6 or 4×8 unit. Hope that helps!
