EZ ARMOR Offers F-5 Safety, Affordability AND Mobility
Until now above-ground safe rooms have been luxuries afforded only by the select few. They were pricy, bulky and were virtually impossible to move when the homeowner relocated. A new line of safe rooms from Tornado Alley Armor has changed all that with its innovative EZ model line of steel above ground safe rooms.
These safe rooms are perfect for the budget-minded, the Do-It-Yourself ‘ers, and for anyone who would enjoy the peace-of-mind and assurance of having an easily accessible safe room both now and in the future, regardless of location.
Tornado Alley Armor Safe Rooms are built to exceed FEMA 320 guidelines for safe room construction. They have been successfully impact tested by the punishing “2x4 cannon” operated by the Wind Science and Energy Research Center at Texas Tech University. This device shoots multiple 15 lb. 2x4’s at 100 mph at the safe room walls and door. Our EZ Armor safe rooms are not “over-engineered” like many competing brands adding unnecessary bulk, labor and other costs, but rather properly engineered to withstand multiple simulated debris impacts consistent with an EF5-rated tornado packing 250 mph winds. Our panels absorb the blows and remain intact with the occupants safely inside. (FYI - Real-life tornado debris travels slower than the actual wind speeds, and the 100 mph test criteria has a very conservative safety factor built into the calculation)
Tornado Alley Armor offers the most competitive pricing in the industry! The unique repeating panel design of our EZ Armor model safe rooms allows significantly reduced costs for manufacturing and transportation. These cost savings are passed on to our customers as lower retail prices. The competition?... Expensive shop hours, fabrication, welding, labor, materials and transportation costs…. all for which you pay a premium price.
Life happens. Jobs change. People move...and according to realtors, that’s about every 5-7 years! Why invest your hard-earned money on a storm shelter just to bury it in the ground, or abandon it in place when you move because it’s too cumbersome and expensive to move with you? At Tornado Alley Armor, we appreciate that and designed our EZ Armor safe rooms to move when you do. The same unique design that makes it so affordable also makes it re-locatable. Just unbolt the panels with a small end wrench, throw them in the truck or moving van, and it’s off to wherever you go. All you need is a concrete slab at the new location to re-anchor it and your tornado protection is back in service.
