Safety starts in the home.  ArmoredCloset is strong enough to resist a tornado and protect you from a burglar — but it’s also built safe for use during a tornado and having accessible in your home with children.

One of the biggest concerns of our customers is the heavy door being a danger to children.  With the exclusive Finger-Safe Door Jamb Flange, young children (and maybe a few adults as well) cannot accidentially close the heavy, 1/4” steel door on their fingers!

Another safety concern is being trapped in your safe room if debris from a tornado blocks the entry.  The ArmoredCloset can be unbolted from the inside if the need should ever arise by using the F-5 Escape Wrench (U.S. Patent No. D728,334).

I trust you will be extremely happy knowing that your protection from a tornado, intruder or burglar is just a step away – right inside the comfort of your home!
