Fiberglass Panel Protection
Against The Storm
Among the most destructive forces on the planet, tornadoes have been responsible for an average of 62 deaths annually in the United States during recent years. 2011 proved to be the deadliest year for tornados since 1953, when 519 people were killed (according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration).
U.S. residents in 26 states live in High Risk Wind Zones, with tornadoes and hurricanes producing winds in excess of 200 miles per hour.
Above-Ground protective structure storm shelters constructed with ArmorCore® panels can provide critical protection from the primary danger of tornadoes: debris picked up by strong winds with enough force to perforate even masonry walls.
