Remagen Safe Rooms RETROFIT
RemagenSafeRooms’ patented Safe Room System turns any existing building corridor or narrow room (less than 12 foot width) into an impenetrable, FEMA-compliant tornado shelter. The Remagen Safe Room System – Retrofit is used to harden schools, emergency operations centers, police and fire stations, 911 facilities, daycare facilities, hospitals, nursing homes, and office buildings. With a Remagen Safe Room System retrofit, building occupants have safe and immediate access to an interior tornado shelter for protection against severe weather or threat from an intruder.
The Remagen Safe Room System can quickly and easily harden your existing building without appreciably changing the character, architecture, or function of the existing facility. The Safe Room System meets the requirements of ICC 500 – 2014, ICC/NSSA Standard for the Design and Construction of Storm Shelters and FEMA P361 – 361, Design and Construction Guidance for Community Safe Rooms for 250 mph EF-5 tornadoes.
