ESP(Emergency Security Preparedness) Safety Shelters(INDOOR/ABOVE GROUND ONLY) offer the ultimate protection and security against violent acts of nature and threats posed by man. ESP Safety Shelters will withstand the most extreme tornado activity and offer a safe zone against home invasion. It is preferable for the shelter to be installed within the interior of a residence. If installed outdoors, it must be within 150 ft. of the residence and must be protected from all weather conditions. THIS SHELTER IS NOT WATERPROOF. The shelter has undergone and passed testing at the National Wind Institute at Texas Tech. The testing is the primary component of receiving certification by the National Storm Shelter Association (NSSA). The ESP Shelter withstood impacts equivalent to the force produced by an F5 tornado with 250 MPH winds. Each shelter meets or exceeds all FEMA P320/P361 and ICC-500 Code requirements when installation guidelines are met. Statement from FEMA P-320: "Having a safe room built for your home or small business can help provide "near-absolute protection" from injury or death caused by the dangerous forces of extreme winds". Near Absolute Protection definition from FEMA P-361: Level of protection afforded to the occupants of a safe room built according to the guidance in the most current edition of FEMA P-361. Our current knowledge of tornadoes and hurricanes indicates that safe room occupants will have a very high probability of being protected from injury or death.
