Protecting ventilation openings for storm shelters is critical when severe weather strikes. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and International Code Council have specific standards for tornado and storm shelters.
Do you know what these are?
In a recent blog post, Todd Olund, senior application engineer with Greenheck describes the design and construction guidelines that currently exist to reduce the effects of tornadoes and other severe storms, particularly for storm shelters.
Todd is well-versed on a wide variety of louver applications, including current FEMA louver requirements. Read his blog post to learn more about what installation and configuration options are available, and how these louvers can be configured for nearly every safe room and storm shelter application.
