Ok so we are here in front of the family safe storm shelter with Robert. Robert, tell us a little bit about the features
and benefits. Give us a little tour of what you got here. Alright, with pleasure. What I like to do
is tell people the family safe differences. There’s different storm shelter companies
but being in the business for the last 13 years; Family safe has really found what I
consider, you know all the different options; bell and whistles to make sure that you have
the safest room possible. On the venting system, we’ve throw our name
as laser cut in the door. We have a ventilation system there that allows air to be distributed
with the air vent on top. Our units are unique because they are 80 inches
tall, we’re making as high as we possibly can for the claustrophobia so she can feel
a little bit bigger space. We have three deadbolt locks, vent that is
on the bottom. And maybe the neatest thing about our doors
is you have children inside playing you can’t slam your fingers. (That really scared me) And that’s exactly right, when you put steel
on steel we got 3/16 inch steel we can even make quarter inch steel. Not only all of our core are welded; but we
take a lot of pride how our units looks. That’s why we do laser cut doors. You’ll notice that the hinges are not exposed
on the outside of the unit or on the inside so that the debris hits right at the hinge
part and this is actually the strongest part of the the familysafe shelter. Door can normally be a weakness but I’ll show
you when we get in the inside two more safety features beside our deadbolt locks. We’ve got our easy pull handle on. Not only
we welded like I said on the corner on the inside you’ll notice, that we have angle iron
backing wrapped in a steel cage like much an askari cage. And our engineers have calculated this to
be well over a hundred thousand pounds of weight distributed on top of it so if a house
would collapse on top of it, you really have nothing to fear. And another neat thing about familysafe, is
we build our own units it’s not a subcontracted service. I can place the doors pretty much
anywhere you want them within the FEMA code. I can put the door here, I can put this on
this side opening inward, I can put the doors over on the ins. and We typically like to keep them 6 inches
away from the side just from the structural standpoint. And we can make the doors 36 inches
wide forwill tear sensibility. (well let’s a take a look inside) Ok. As you can see ours door are double plated
steel on the outside 3/16 on the inside. What really makes us safe is not only we have
locked the deadbolt, we have steel bars for extra safety that we put on the top of the
door as well as below the door. You also see that we have real good ventilation
around the doors. Units comes standard with a electrical outlet
like a junction box so that lights can be mounted to it or maybe a couple of receptacles And here is where you can see our steel cage
and that’s 2×2 square tubing core supported with heavy angle iron And perhaps the most unique thing about our
doors is they can be removed and so if there some reason there’s impingements on the outside;
you see the hinges that we have here, we simply have to raise those just a half an inch or
an inch to get above and the door will actually swing open past the locks or the door can
be removed. The hinges built on the inside is really a
nice option because debris is thrown against the shelter is also supported by this heavy
piece of 3/8 angle iron that the hinges actually welded too And a peep hole so you can watch the storm
coming.
