ESP (Emergency – Security – Preparedness) Safety Shelters (ABOVE GROUND ONLY) offer the ultimate in multi-purpose protection and security for you and loved ones against violent acts of nature and multiple 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 you choose to install it outdoors, it must be within 150 feet of the residence it is intended to serve and must be protected from all external weather conditions. THIS SHELTER IS NOT WATERPROOF.
The Swisher ESP Safety Shelter has undergone and passed testing at the National Wind Institute at Texas Tech University. The testing is the primary component of receiving certification by the National Storm Shelter Association (NSSA). The ESP Shelter has been tested and withstood a total of 9 impacts from 15 lb. 2x4’s traveling at 100 mph. These impacts are equivalent to the force produced by an F5 tornado with 250 mph winds. In addition, it meets or exceeds all requirements put forth by NSSA, FEMA 320 and ICC-500 standards. Each ESP Safety Shelter is verified to be in compliance with the National Storm Shelter Association Standards (NSSA).
