What Does a Safe Room Do?

To understand what a safe room is, you have to understand what it does. In short, a safe room is a secure room that is designed to protect inhabitants from storms and intruders. These rooms are generally detached from the building but can be built within a structure. 

According to FEMA, “A safe room is a hardened structure specifically designed to meet the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) criteria and provide near-absolute protection in extreme weather events, including tornadoes and hurricanes. Near-absolute protection means that, based on our current knowledge of tornadoes and hurricanes, the occupants of a safe room built under FEMA guidance will have a very high probability of being protected from injury or death.”

These rooms are engineered specifically to protect you from whatever is outside. Miami Nation Stronghold, LLC takes our safe rooms a step further. Our shelters are designed and tested to the National Storm Shelter Association’s rigid requirements. All of our safe rooms undergo extensive wind and debris impact testing and include the NSSA quality verification seal and NSSA certificate of installation.

While these rooms are specifically designed and engineered to protect from severe weather, the standards by which they are built lend them to safety from intruders. The security provided by these safe rooms is more than capable of protecting you from anyone who would attempt to do harm to you and your family.
