How It Works

Among the most important aspects of any storm shelter is the protective door system. The StormDefend™ FEMA door assembly offers proven protection against winds and flying debris of up to 250 mph as tested by Intertek, meeting the FEMA 320/361 standards for tornado resistance.

06-28-13-bmd-tornado-doors2Each assembly is clearly labeled with FEMA 320/361, insuring compliance. WARNING: Be weary of manufacturers who offer FEMA “compliance” without the label! The label is granted only to those who have proven test results meeting the stringent FEMA standards. No shortcuts should be taken when selecting a shelter door.

StormDefend™ doors are provided with the most dependable locking mechanisms available. Standard locks will not stand up to the brute wind and projectile forces created by a windstorm. In an emergency situation, it is imperative that you are able to access the safe room quickly and activate the locking system immediately! For this reason, our StormDefend door assemblies come complete with a Securitech® Multi-point locking system, tested at Texas Tech University to the FEMA standards for protection against Tornadoes and Extreme Wind Loads.

06-28-13-bmd-tornado-doors3Offering both lock and hinge side bolting, each Securitech® Windstorm lock offers single motion locking with use of a thumb turn on the interior of the door. Various functions are available, including single motion egress, fire ratings and ADA compliance for doors swinging into or out of the shelter. When dependable locking is in a necessity, Securitech® is the solution.

No matter the application, be it residential or commercial, the StormDefend™ Tornado Door assembly offers proven results you can depend on to protect you and your loved ones from the storm.
