The shelter was installed in my home yesterday. The installation was outstanding; you have the right combination of product and people. Mr. Mike Jones is a professional and it was a pleasure to have him in my home. I typically have unrealistic expectations for people, and Mike exceeded my expectations in professionalism and quality of installation.As us old timers say, “he is a keeper.”
Brian Davidson, a Ridgeland mortgage officer, said the area where he’s building his new home north of Brandon (Mississippi) was torn to pieces by a tornado in the early 1990s. “I told myself when I build a new house, I was going to build a storm room”, Davidson said. Davidson ordered a premade shelter from Remagen Safe Rooms in Tennessee. It came with instructions, and he has been installing it himself while construction continues on his home. The room will go inside a home office, and will double as a safe, he said. The steel frame will be wrapped in fireproof sheet rock.There’s no way to know if he will ever need to take shelter in the room. Davidson said he will feel better knowing it is there. “I’m doing this for security and peace of mind,” he said.
We had a great experience with Remagen Storm Shelters, together we built 7 of the 110 person storm shelters in just 37 calendar days from notice to proceed to final completion. Remagen worked hard to pull together all our materials and coordinate our deliveries in such a short period of time, then trained our staff how to construct the building in accordance with the NSSA and FEMA requirements. We had very few problems and the Government was very pleased with the finished product. Thanks Remagen, you made it happen for us.
Since we had a StormCloset installed in our home, we both feel really comfortable that we would be protected in the event of another major storm. During my Air Force career, I learned a lot about safety – personal, home safety as well as flight safety. I am satisfied that my wife and I would be protected by the StormCloset during a severe storm.When Hurricane Floyd threatened the Florida coastline several years ago, the government declared a federal emergency requiring the evacuation inland of unsheltered residents of coastal areas. My wife and I spent five hours in the terrible traffic jam creeping along the sixty mile stretch to Orlando. The brunt of the hurricane never even hit Florida. Afterwards, we decided that we would never do that again. I hope we never have to use it, but if we do, I am confident that we will be safe sitting the storm out at home in our StormCloset. “Mrs. Sofet adds: “I really feel safe just knowing the StormCloset is close by to protect us in the event a storm suddenly occurs.”
Just a short note thanking you and everyone at Remagen Corp. for projects we have done. From a walk-in jewelry room to safe rooms and important document storage. Each has been different, but you filled our needs. Thank You
When we first moved to Tennessee and built a home in an isolated rural area, we needed a secure place to store guns, jewelry, and family heirlooms, as well as a place where we would have shelter during bad windstorms which frequently came through our area. I saw the ClosetVault at a gun show and purchased one directly from the factory. As a family project, my 13 year old son and I put it together with ease. The ClosetVault, with all components pre-drilled for screws, anchors, and electrical conduit, had all connection hardware and easily understood assembly instructions and took very little skill to install. Everything lined up perfectly. It was a fun project that went without a hitch. We assembled the vault inside an existing closet concealed under a stairwell and on a concrete foundation slab I poured in the crawl space from the ground to the first floor.Having our valuables secure and knowing that we could quickly seek shelter during a storm have given me and my family tremendous peace of mind. The ClosetVault has been a real asset to my family and has added greatly to the value of our home.
We are in our shelters now as we are under a tornado warning. Our most important asset is our team members, the addition of 2 of Remagen’s 100 person storm shelters to our data center ensures the safety and well being of those team members in times of severe weather. Remagen was able to custom design a solution that best fit our existing facility layout and meet our needs for a quick and easy shelter occupation plan.
“…the Safe Rooms that your company has built for us are great. The protection that these buildings serve for our employees can’t be put into words. Thank you.”
Maxi and I weathered the storm alone, while Andy was ‘evacuated’ to CA. Before he left we set up The Room: a shelf to put in our papers, computers etc an electrical cord from the ceiling, so that I had light, a little fan, radio and telephones working a comfortable chair for me and Maxi’s blanket, of course.By 2 am our county was in a tornado box on TV and since it was dark, I decided to retire to The Room. Shortly thereafter, we lost electricity but the generator kicked in automatically and then I actually fell asleep in my comfortable reclining chair until the early morning. The little fan (the last one off the shelf for $2.50) was just need any more AC, as we once had contemplated.Well, the house is still standing, but a few trees are not! In summary then, I felt very well prepared and protected, and will take hurricanes over earthquakes any time!
A stand alone 8′ x 13′ tornado shelter was purchased in 2009. While fulfilling all the safety & corporate requirements, the shelter was on budget, on schedule, good design coordination, & straight forward to assemble with good product support. A project manager could not ask for more. When another shelter is necessary, we will call Remagen.
Living in a house with no basement, we had no place to go in the event of a tornado. Because you don’t know how much time you will have to get into a shelter, we wanted our StormCloset to be an integral part of our house. We made it into a walk-in closet between the living room and the back porch. Because it’s anchored to a concrete pier, we can go into it during a storm and feel confident that it’s not going to blow away.”
After all the tornadoes here in Kentucky, I wanted to thank you for your shelter that we purchased last year. Fortunately we were not directly impacted by the tornadoes but I appreciate knowing that protection is available. I’ll take some pictures of the shelter and send them to you soon. I drywalled and painted the inside and put down carpet. It’s quite comfortable now. It’s big enough that if I know a nasty storm is coming, I can open up the bed in the shelter and spend the night in the shelter in comfort without worrying about any sudden problems in the night.
