The terms "FEMA APPROVED" or "FEMA CERTIFIED" do not exist! If a manufacturer claims this they are misleading you. FEMA does not "APPROVE", "CERTIFY", or "RECOMMEND" safe room manufacturers or their designs, so beware those who make this claim!
Tornado Alley Armor is designed to meet or exceed FEMA 320 & ICC-500 guidelines for safe room design and construction. Check the "other guys"…ask them to provide documentation that their design meets or exceeds FEMA 320 design standards for safe room construction. Also, make sure that they didn't go overboard with costly design overkill and excessive materials. Sound engineering design leads to the most cost effective products. Our design works perfectly without costly overkill! Our FEMA 320 & ICC-500 compliance is NSSA verified and we can prove it! You won't have to wonder if your safe room will meet FEMA safe room rebate requirements.
