All tests were conducted for resistance to the Protocol 4, Tornado and tests prove your shelter to meet debris impact guidelines of the FEMA 320/361 and ICC-500. All tests were compliant with FEMA 320/361 (2008) and ICC-500 (2008). Congratulations on your shelter door passing the FEMA 320 & ICC-500 tests.

Designed for Safety
Strong Enough to Resist a Tornado and Protect You from a Burglar 

Safety starts in the home.  Armored Closet 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 accidentally 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 Armored Closet 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).

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!

 
Ballistics Tested
Armored Closet Stops Bullets Under Fire

The Armored Closet is a viable, bullet-proof safe room that gives you tornado protection in season and peace of mind throughout the day and into the night because it doubles as an accessible, in-home safe room.

Have you ever heard a noise in the night while you were sleeping and wondered if there were an intruder in the house? Well, now you can rest assured knowing that you have a safe room that you can run to – custom –built into the closet of your choice – in the comfort of your own home.

The truth is the most vulnerable time in our lives is spent while we are in our bed sleeping. Now you can live with greater security knowing you have an Armored Closet in your home. And in an emergency, you can use your cell phone to call 911 inside your Armored Closet safe room. Cellular phone signals are not inhibited by the steel walls.


A safe room is a hardened structure specifically designed to meet the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) criteria and provide near-absolute protection in extreme weather events, including tornadoes and hurricanes. Near-absolute protection means that, based on our current knowledge of tornadoes and hurricanes, the occupants of a safe room built in accordance with FEMA guidance will have a very high probability of being protected from injury or death.

To be considered a FEMA safe room, the structure must be designed and constructed to the guidelines specified in  FEMA P-320, Taking Shelter from the Storm: Building a Safe Room for Your Home or Small Business  and FEMA P-361, Safe Rooms for Tornadoes and Hurricanes: Guidance for Community and Residential Safe Rooms. 

Armored Closets are Made in the U.S.A.
