The Safety Closet – Panic Room

The Safety Closet takes the place of one of your lower level closets during construction. It is built to the size of an existing closet, from 100% steel, and is used as any typical closet. It is FEMA compliant, has been tested to EF-5 tornado conditions, and qualifies for all government grants and rebate programs. It withstands small arms rounds at close distance, and our concealed vents prevent any possibility of gas/poison penetration.


Above Ground Safe Rooms

At SteelSafe Shelters, our mission is simple, “We Save Lives!” Notably, this model is completely custom for new home builds. Protect your loved ones against the threat of home invasion, deadly storm, and devastating fire.  We are a true American-Made company that develops all of our products in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

All of our shelter models and styles have been tested to meet or exceed FEMA 320/361 and ICC-500 criteria through the Wind and Debris Laboratory at Texas Tech University. 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.

This is our newest and most innovative safe/panic room that doubles as a closet for your everyday storage and clothes.
