Above Ground Storm Shelter Solutions Without Sacrificing Space

The Vortex Vault Tornado Shelter Bed is an innovative new technology that allows for in-home protection from severe weather without sacrificing and additional space in your home. Our bed allows many advantages over traditional in-ground and above ground shelters and can be moved to different rooms or moved to a new home when you move. It is also the perfect solution for wheelchair and mobility scooter users as well as those with limited mobility as they can easily access the shelter without the danger of accessing steps of a traditional in ground shelter. The bed lift system also acts as high low option allowing for easier transfers back and forth from the bed to a wheelchair.

Integrated Lift System

Down Position

When Vortex Vault is in the down position, the shelter functions as a standard bed. Standard headboards and footboards can be installed on the bed. After dressing up the bed, you won’t be able to even know that you have a fortified storm shelter in your room ready to deploy at anytime. The bed can also function as a high-low bed allowing for easier transfers for wheelchair users. Entry doors are now accessed on the side of bed.

Up Position

With a push of a button, the Vortex Vault bed raises to a 57″ height allowing for individuals to enter the shelter. The shelter has been approved by the Texas Tech Wind Institute to withstand winds of a EF5 tornado.  The convenient height of 57″ also allows most wheelchair users to easily access the shelter with the advantage of not having to access traditional in ground storm shelters.  Beds are available from twin size up to king.  The bigger the bed size, the more people that can access it.

Certified by Texas Wind Institute for the F5 Rating

The Vortex Vault Shelter Bed has been certified by the Texas Tech Wind Institute with a EF5 rating. The video includes the testing completed by Texas Tech.

Wind scientists at Texas Tech’s National Wind Institute pioneered work in above ground storm shelters. Beginning in 1974, researchers developed the first “safe rooms” that could be built into a closet. Texas Tech’s shelter work led to the development of specific criteria for constructing above ground shelters that are endorsed by FEMA. Texas Tech also was instrumental in the formation of the National Storm Shelter Association to ensure the highest quality storm shelters to protect people against tornadoes and hurricanes.
