Storm Shelters

The 3 In 1 Safe Room Why do we call it the 3 in 1? Well, it's the only storm shelter that also serves as a safe room, and when we fit ti with an optional combo and keypad lock it becomes a gun and valuables safe.

Let's talk about using the 3 In 1 Safe Room
as a storm shelter. The 3 In 1 Safe Room is an innovative, space-saving storm and tornado shelter that folds up to only 17 inches off a wall when not in use. It can be quickly and easily deployed in just a few seconds, should the need arise. It provides a safe hiding place from storms, and will with stand up to an F-5 rated tornado. Various sizes are available to accommodate a different number of people in your home, business or school. Traditional units usually take up too much space, and are difficult and expensive to ship. The Hide-Away™ solves both of these problems. We are very excited about how this shelter can provide safe haven in places where it was not feasible before, due to either space or cost considerations. This is a perfect residential product. A person can set one of these up in their garage or on a concrete slab within a finished home. The fold up model unfolds within seconds if a storm is on its way, and can be configured to take up minimal space.

Businesses, multi-family buildings, and mobile homes can also install a tornado shelter to provide their employees and neighbors a safe haven. Whether you have a condo, apartment, school, mobile home park or business, this product will work for you on many levels. If you need a less expensive option and have the space for a fixed unit, we have this option available.

We always hear about tragedies after they happen. If we can help save one person's life, that will be so worth while! Take steps to be prepared today.

The Hide-Away Storm Shelter was tested at the Texas Tech University Wind Science & Engineering Research Center (WiSE) to withstand Debris Impact per the design criteria of the ICC 500 “ICC/NSSA Standard For The Design and Construction of Storm Shelters”, FEMA 320 “Taking Shelter From the Storm: Building a Safe Room For Your Home or Small Business”, and FEMA 361 “Design and Construction Guidance for Community Safe Rooms” Guidelines. The test included multiple impacts by a 15 lb. wood 2x4 propelled at 100 mph for horizontal impacts as produced by a missile propelled horizontally by a 250 mph ground speed tornado. The maximum resultant deflection imposed on the Hide-Away Storm Shelter was a 3/4 inch deflection. The testing criteria allows a maximum deflection of 3 inches.Call today for a free consultation: (309) 797-4647

School and Home Bullet-Proof Rooms, Storm and Tornado Shelters

The solution to school security we’ve all been looking for…This shelter provides complete protection, even from military grade weapons. It is fast, convenient, low-tech, reliable and effective. A shelter can protect an entire classroom – not just a single person. Using this shelter does not involve more guns as part of the solution and no armed guards which means no ongoing expenses for salaries for security guards. This is a one-time capital improvement cost and a low maintenance - which is great for your budget.

The Hide-Away Safe Room can provide safe haven for students, faculty and staff in the event of an armed intruder. It installs in the front of a classroom, behind the whiteboard or projection screen, and only takes up 17 inches of floor space from the wall. In the event of an event, it can be deployed in just seconds. It is capable of holding an entire classroom: up to 25 students and a teacher. The doors are locked from the inside of the shelter to prevent an intruder from gaining access. The unit is made of ballistic steel capable of withstanding a 30 caliber armor piercing round – the same material often used in military grade equipment.
Because the 3 In 1 Safe Room is modular there are many options available that allow you to reduce your cost, and configure the unit to meet any unique needs.
