Space age technology…

DuPont™ Kevlar® aramid fiber, the same life-saving material used by police and the military, is integrated into the walls and ceiling of the DuPont™ StormRoom™. The Kevlar® acts as a barrier, preventing the debris thrown by tornado-force winds from penetrating into the shelter.

Strength at the core…

In addition to the Kevlar® armed fiber, the walls and ceiling panels also contain a high-density foam core. While the Kevlar® stops the penetration from wind-borne debris, the foam core absorbs the energy of the impact, dissipating it out across the entire shelter, helping to protect the occupants from the impact.

Crush Resistance…

The construction of the laminated panels and the steel connector plates, acting in conjunction with one another, creates a structure that is capable of holding up over 35 tons of debris on its roof. That is equivalent to the weight of a loaded tractor-trailer truck!

A firm foundation…

The DuPont™ StormRoom™ with Kevlar® is firmly anchored to your concrete slab foundation using Simpson Strong-Tie anchoring system. These anchors will withstand more than 3 times the amount of uplift required to stay in place during an EF-5 tornado.
