Announcing The HabiFrame Storm Shelter from Protective Structures

Press release date: February 13, 2012

Protective Structures, Ltd. is proud to announce immediate availability of the HabiFrame Storm Shelter, a shelter made out of laminated strand engineered lumber, that you build like you would a room out of Lincoln Logs.

Except these logs can resist "a 2-inch x 4-inch, 15 lb. missile propelled at 100 mph, which simulates identical debris being propelled horizontally by a 250 mph tornado".

The LP SolidStart LSL beams are assembled in a horizontal pattern, reinforced with Simpson Strong-TieĀ® steel structural support rods inserted at regular intervals. Interlocking corner joints and steel reinforcing plates add still more strength. The HabiFrame in-home storm shelter's roof is constructed in the same manner, and the entire room is built on a specially designed poured concrete foundation. Sheet rock, paneling, or other finish materials are applied, giving the appearance of an ordinary room. A reinforced steel door provides safe, easy access. Standard HabiFrame in-home storm shelter size is 10 ft. x 10 ft., providing ample space for a family in the event of an emergency.
