Testing at Texas Tech

Our Safe rooms and Underground shelters, have been engineered to exceeded FEMA Standard(FEMA Rule 320). As a final step in the engineering process, our shelters have been tested to meet all required specifications in a real world scenario.

To test each unit Texas Tech has Five Protocols which each unit must successfully past.

In the below videos, you can watch each of our types of shelters successfully pass the Texas Tech requirements. The 2 x 4 in this video is a 9lb unit shot out of an air cannon.
