2012 MARCH TORNADOOne year ago today was the March 2, 2013 tornado that struck both the Dodson Branch area of Jackson County and the Hardys Chapel area of Overton County just 20 minutes north of Cookeville. Many residents were either caught with nowhere to go or rode out the twister in the safest part of their home.
A GREAT SOLUTIONAt the Home Builders Association of the Upper Cumberland home show today in Cookeville, Tennessee today I saw a very impressive product that would keep your family safe in a weather emergency or a home invasion emergency.
STANDS STRONG AGAINST AN EF5 TORNADOFamilySAFE Certified, In-Home Saferooms are simply the best in severe weather protection. Tested under conditions of an EF5 (a violent tornado causing significant damage with winds greater than 200 mph) tornado by Texas Tech University. A fifteen pound 2x4 piece of lumber was hurled at the room under EF5 conditions produced a mere 1/4" dent in the door and there was a person inside of the FamilySAFE room during the event.
PERFECT FOR NEW OR EXISTING HOMESThe unit can installed in numerous ways and places from outside your residence to even as an addition in your new or existing home. Some new construction homes use the area under your staircase as a great spot for your FamilySAFE room. FamilySAFE rooms have a large number of sizes and options for nearly every homeowner. The units meet or exceed every safety standard in the US.
POWERFULLY STRONGThe unit can take the weight of more than 25 mid-sized cars (about 100,000 lbs) stacked upon it. It is handicapped accessible and friendly to those who suffer from claustrophobia. Installation takes only about two hours and the unit is held in place by HILTI anchors.
