A number of underground shelter doors are designed and manufactured from materials that do not stand up to oxidation and UV rays as well as polyethylene. Between the destruction of the materials from the Ultra Violet rays and the deterioration caused by the moisture and oxidation, a number of these poorly constructed & designed doors will soon become safety hazards more so than necessary protection for their underground shelters. Notice in the pictures below how other material storm shelter doors fair in everyday environments.
If you notice in the picture above and to the right, the door has an internal shock that is to assist in opening and closing the door. However, due to design, the manufacturer has chose to locate the shock on the interior of the door. This creates a potential safety hazard, for the occupants of the shelter. If/When the door was to be impacted, the shock could be propelled into the safe compartment of the shelter. Don't put your family's safety at risk! Ask to see the FEMA 320/FEMA 361 video and a copy of the report from the Debris Impact test facility!
