Proprietary CORELOCK™ Anchoring System
You Can Trust Our CORELOCK™ Anchors to Keep Your Family Safe!
For many people who regularly experience tornadoes, having a storm shelter as part of their home is a top priority. Storm shelters are meant to keep you safe from harm in a violent storm, protecting you from the high winds, flying debris, and collapsing structures. For years, homeowners feared that above-ground storm shelters would too easily anchoring system would fail during a tornado event, so they tended to choose underground shelters. However, underground shelters come with many risks, such as flooding, snakes, mold, insects and animals, or entrapment if debris conceals the entrance to the shelter.
In 2006, Valley Storm Shelters™ decided it was time to design a storm shelter that truly keeps people safe, without the common risks and concerns of traditional shelters. Our engineers developed the leading safe room on the market that sets the industry standard for safety. Due to our uniquely designed CORELOCK™ Anchoring System, there are no more worries that an above-ground storm shelter will fail.
The following is some brief information about our CORELOCK™ anchored shelters and how they can work for your household:
- The anchored shelter can withstand winds in excess of 300 miles per hour, which is equal to or greater than an EF-5 tornado
- The Texas Tech Wind Science and Engineering Research Center tested our storm shelters for safety
- The shelters include steel walls, floors, and doors with protected vents for airflow without the concern of debris damage
- The vault door is 310 pounds with a drill-proof/pick-proof deadbolt and a bulletproof peephole
- The shelter is specially anchored using 24-inch carbon steel CORELOCK™ anchors, 7-inch by ¾-inch Hilti concrete cutting anchors, and industrial 2-component anchoring adhesive
