FEMA Safe Room Recommendations
Here are some of FEMA’S recommendations for buying the right safe room for you. FEMA does not authorize or certify any safe rooms as they are not a commercial enterprise, however we do build all our structures to meet FEMA suggestions.
- The safe room should be adequately anchored to the foundation to resist overturning and uplift.
- The walls, ceiling, and door of the shelter should withstand wind pressure and resist penetration by wind-borne objects or falling debris.
- The connections between all parts of the safe room should be strong enough to resist separation by wind.
- Sections of either interior or exterior residence walls which are used as walls of the safe room, should be separated from the structure of the residence so that damage to the residence will not cause damage to the safe room.
