THE STRENGTH OF A STORMBOX SHELTER

What’s Behind The Strength Of A STORMBOX Shelter?

What makes our STORMBOX unique is not only its affordability and accessibility, but it’s durability. Each and every STORMBOX is professionally designed and engineered. Plus, the shelter/saferoom has passed Texas Tech’s National Wind Institute Debris Impact Test.

So, what’s that?

Texas Tech’s Debris Impact Facility is the most trusted source for ensuring a shelter’s design meets FEMA 361 and ICC 500 guidelines. And, as you know, How they test saferooms and design components is where it gets really interesting aka awesome!

Basically, Texas Tech has a pneumatic cannon. That’s right – a cannon. They’re able to produce simulated wind speeds you would see during an F5 tornado! Plus, they can literally load the cannon with different types of wind-born debris and shoot it at our STORMBOX to gather impact data. This is all very scientific, of course.

STORMBOX is your best choice for overall value when it comes to cost, flexibility of locations and speed of installation. If you have questions about any other aspect of our STORMBOX (financing, specifications, etc.), please call (844) 466-1267!
