No matter how newly constructed your house may be, it is not designed to protect you and your family from a disaster. Therefore, there is no replacement for a safe room or shelter. If your brain is buzzing with safe rooms FAQs, Safe Rooms US is just the contractor for you.
These are some of the most common safe room FAQs and their answers that can help you decide what kind of a storm shelter to invest in:
1. If My House Has a Basement, Do I Still Need a Safe Room?
The answer is yes. Uncontrollable disasters like tornadoes and twisters come in with force and motion. This kind of movement causes door framing to detach, walls to collapse, and basements to fall. This makes even normal house elements and fixtures turn into life-threatening hazards.
For this reason, it is important to get FEMA P-361 approved safe rooms. Safe Room US has storm shelters that are EF-5 rated and can be installed in any given garage, workshop, exterior, or basement. Underground garage shelters and bunkers are other below-ground installation options.
2. What Size Should I Buy?
According to FEMA guidelines, you take the number of people you want to protect and multiply it by three feet of standing space and six feet of sitting space. You should also include space for pets or for storing emergency supplies. At Safe Rooms US, we have a vast collection of sizes and can even customize options according to your needs.
3. How Can I Check Ventilation?
Your safe room must have proper ventilation through air ducts or holes. You can browse our gallery to see how we have incorporated ventilation systems into our designs. We can also show you our building process to demonstrate how ventilation is ensured in each design.
