Thunderground Storm Shelters: Are all shelters engineered to meet FEMA requirements?

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

All storm shelters on the market today do not meet FEMA requirements. The key to this is to know that the shelter has been professionally engineered and designed to meet the specifications outlined in publications 320 and 361. Another way is whether the shelter company has tested their shelters through the Texas Tech University National Wind Institute. Both of which of these we have done. We had a crafted and tooled professional engineering firm design our shelters, as well as test them at Texas Tech University. You'll want to make sure that you look for a lot of these key requirements when you are deciding on a shelter.
