NORAD Tornado Shelters for Schools are Warrantied for 30 Years

NORAD SCHOOL TORNADO SHELTERS ARE NOT SUBJECT TO TORNADO WIND AND DEBRIS

NORAD Commercial Underground Tornado Shelters are UNCONVENTIONAL structures that sit beneath the damaging winds, literally out of harm’s way. The NORAD goal is to get people to PRE-DISASTER-SHELTER by supplying a spacious shelter environment with 8-10 ft. cathedral ceilings, plenty of bathrooms, cold running water, good lighting, fresh filtered air and a comfortable temperature.

NORAD Tornado Shelters encourage pre-disaster sheltering.

PROTECTED FROM NEGATIVE AIR PRESSURE

NORAD School Tornado Shelters are installed safely underground

NORAD Commercial School Tornado Shelter hatches, air manifolds and hulls are protected from negative air pressure sucking them out of the ground. The emergency jack lifts 16,000 pounds off the hatch preventing people being trapped inside.

NOT SUBJECT TO FLYING DEBRIS

NORAD School Tornado Shelters are not subject to horizontal flying debris. The hatches are flush with the ground and installed above the 100 year flood plain. NORAD Commercial Tornado Shelters have very little surface exposed to the winds and flying debris.

ICC 500 ALLOWS SHELTER DESTRUCTION

A conventional tornado shelter can meet FEMA 361 an ICC 500 2014 and still be destroyed. ICC standards don’t protect shelters. Conventional tornado warranties do NOT cover tornado damage. The school must pay to rebuild the shelter.

ICC 500 PROTECTS ONLY TO 15 LB. AT 100 MPH

Shelters meeting ICC 500 2014 specifications must withstand a 15 lb. 2×4 traveling at 100 mph. A tornado can hurl a 3,000 lb. car at 220 mph, which would damage a conventional tornado shelter’s walls, roof, plumbing and electrical systems.

NORAD SHELTERS EASILY DEFEAT 350 MPH WINDS

The wide NORAD Tornado Shelter Entranceway allows 1 adult/5 seconds entry time.

WIDER IS BETTER

Conventional tornado shelters using steep stairwells impede movement. NORAD 45 degree entranceways allow faster entry time. NORAD tornado shelters are DUAL USE as classrooms, meeting rooms, offices and supervised quiet/play areas. Shelter ends can connect to the stairwells, existing structures or other shelters

30 TO 50 YEAR STRUCTURAL PROTECTING FROM CORROSION AND TORNADO DAMAGE.

NORAD Commercial Underground Tornado Shelters are UNCONVENTIONAL structures that sit beneath the damaging winds, literally out of harm’s way. Structural hardening and the earth cover protect people from 350 mph flying debris without causing shelter damage.

NORAD Tornado Shelters protect people from greater than F5 tornadoes with a post-tornado re-fitting cost of no more than $3,000 to replace solar panels and antenna equipment.

Conventional tornado shelters often come with no warranty, with better companies offering “limited lifetime warranties for any defects in material workmanship.” A “workmanship” warranty doesn’t promise the shelter will stand up to 350 mph tornado winds, making the tornado shelter owner responsible for the expensive post-tornado repairs. Complete shelter destruction is not a defect and so is not covered under these warranties. Buyers have no recourse except to repair, re-build and replace the tornado shelter.

NORAD Tornado Shelters are warrantied for 30 years against structural failure. The NORAD shelter hull is not exposed to Tornado winds. The air manifolds and hatches are flush with the ground to resist 350 mph winds. A 30 year corrosion protection system is included with all NORAD Tornado Shelters. Protection and the associated warranty can be upgraded to 40 or 50 year lengths.

Conventional flush toilet bathrooms.

CONVENTIONAL FLUSH TOILETS

Bathrooms have sewage lifts to the septic leach tank. Each bathroom has a sink with cold running water. At least one bathroom is ADA-compliant. There is a minimum of one bathroom per 50 people but NORAD shelters can easily accommodate more bathrooms per person. Bathrooms are under constant negative pressure to remove odors. The shelter uses conventional flush toilets rather than “port-a-potty” chemical toilets which can be unpleasant and limited in duration.

PRE-DISASTER SHELTERING SAVES LIVES, LIMBS AND LAWSUITS

Flying debris is the main cause of tornado injuries and deaths. When people avoid hot, cramped conventional shelters until the tornado funnel is in sight they are more likely to get hit by flying debris on their way to the shelter. The NORAD goal is to get people to shelter PRE-DISASTER by supplying a spacious shelter environment with 8-10 ft. cathedral ceilings, plenty of bathrooms, cold running water, good lighting, fresh filtered air and a comfortable temperature.
