The above-ground Remagen Safe Room System in-residence tornado safe room provides a room-size, tornado shelter at floor level, close to your living space and only seconds away from where you sleep (See Time and Motion Study). The Remagen Safe Room System components are DIY-assembled inside a room or closet of your residence without changing the character, function, or architecture of the residence (see Safe Room Assembly Manual). Imagine the security your family will have with a tornado shelter/panic room in a nearby closet.
The customer-designed, prefabricated light-gauge steel, Remagen Safe Room System is anchored to a wire- or steel-reinforced concrete floor slab or a specially designed concrete foundation in your home with drilled anchors.

COLONEL JOSEPH J. SOFET – USAF Retired; Pilot of Air Force One, Kennedy/Johnson administrations; Indian River Colony Club, Melbourne, FL says;
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.”
BRENT HASKELL, M.D. – Georgetown, KY says;
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.
