Tornado Shelter Doors
Many underground shelter doors are designed and produced from inferior materials, that do not stand up to oxidation and UV rays. Between the degradation of the door materials from the Ultra Violet rays and the deterioration of the door due to moisture and oxidation, many of these inadequately designed and built made doors will soon come to be safety threats more so than required security for their underground shelters. Take notice in the photos listed here how various other tornado shelter doors produced from inferior materials degrade in every day settings.
Steel Tornado Shelter Door Rusting Away
Fiberglass Door: A future liability issue?
If you notice in the picture above and to the right, the door has an internal shock to make opening and closing the door easier. However, due to poor design and engineering, the manufacturer has chosen to locate the shock on the interior of the door. This creates a potential safety hazard, for the occupants of the shelter. If/When the door was to be impacted, the shock could be propelled into the safe compartment of the shelter. Don't put your family's safety at risk! Ask to see the FEMA 320/FEMA 361 video and a copy of the report from the Debris Impact test facility!
