Residential safe rooms are becoming more popular as families seek protection from violent tornadoes. Like any other room, safe rooms must be accessed through an opening or door. Just as the walls and roof of a safe room are designed and built to protect against extreme winds and wind-borne debris, so must the safe room door. Securall Storm Safe Doors are constructed in accordance with the Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) guidelines and the International Code Council's (ICC-500) standard for tornado shelter doors. This design is based on extensive research on the cause and effects of windstorm damage to buildings. When combined with a shelter that also adheres to FEMA guidelines and ICC standards, a StormSafe Door will provide a high degree of occupant protection during extreme windstorms (tornados and hurricanes).

Steel doors commonly used in residential and commercial construction cannot withstand the impact of the wind-borne debris, or “missiles,” that a tornado can propel, and their failure has resulted in serious injury and even death during tornadoes. There is a common misconception that a steel “storm door” with three locks and three hinges can provide tornado lifesafety protection: it cannot. Only door assemblies designed and tested to resist tornadoes can provide life-safety protection for you and your family.

Testing on Storm Safe doors was performed at Texas Tech University's Wind Science and Engineering Research Center. Texas Tech is the foremost authority in wind research and co-authored FEMA's "Taking Shelter from the Storm", a publication outlining design specifications for safe rooms. All three StormSafe models successfully passed and exceeded the minimum requirements.

  • Pressure and impact tests independently conducted at Texas Tech University’s Wind Science and Engineering Research Center
  • Consistent with FEMA 320 / 361 - “The Design and Construction of Storm Shelters”.
  • Consistent with the ICC-500 pressure test load 120% safety factor requirement.
  • Both the pressure and impact tests simulate a 250-mph wind storm.

  • The pressure test meets ASCE 7-05 for a door to be installed in Corner Zones 4 & 5, where negative pressures are greater than positive pressures.
