CASE 3: Vertical Coiling without Egress

Resilient Construction

Storm shelters can be constructed as separate detached buildings or as safe rooms within new or existing buildings. These types of structures are required to be designated hurricane shelters, tornado shelters or a combination thereof.

Similar to the previous cases, this beautiful library in the Ida Freeman Elementary School is also a tornado shelter. Thanks to SafeSpaceā„¢ Model SS500 technology large windows and storefront doors let in plenty of daylight. It is easy to imagine that this area is simply a spacious, inviting area for reading and learning.
