WOC 2015: Tornado Safe Room Showcase

Across the country, homeowners and business owners have become interested in resilient and safe construction in areas prone to tornadoes. This World of Concrete demonstration showcased four different building systems for safe rooms: concrete masonry, precast concrete, insulating concrete forms, and cast-in-place concrete. Any of these systems can be used to construct a safe room that can withstand 200 mph winds and impact from wind-borne debris.
