Connecting Community Tornado Safe Rooms

Connecting Community Tornado Safe Rooms
Connecting community tornado safe rooms provide protection for employees and customers of manufacturing and packaging buildings as well as other businesses having space adjacent to their buildings. This type of safe room has several advantages including cost of construction.
Connecting safe rooms are available in varying sizes and configurations.

The connecting community tornado safe room has the advantage of providing direct access to safe room for employees and customers seeking protection during severe weather events. The safe room is accessed directly from the plant or business through a FEMA-compliant tornado door in the main building exterior wall. Persons seeking shelter do not have to go outside through lightning, hail, and wind-driven storm debris to access the safe room. A second FEMA-compliant tornado door on the exterior of the safe room provides egress from the safe room directly to the exterior. This provides an additional emergency egress door from the main facility.

CHRIS AXTON, CBCP AVP – Business Continuity Manager says;

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.
