Tornado/Windstorm Locking Solutions

Industry Pioneers- Securitech locking systems are the first to have passed FEMA 320 & FEMA 361

Protect Against Tornados/Windstorms: Storm Shelter Door Hardware

As industry pioneers, Securitech multi-point lock systems are the first to have passed FEMA test 320 & FEMA 361. While the affected building may inevitably be damaged or destroyed by a tornado/windstorm, it is imperitive that the designated shelter and storm shelter door hardware is properly equipped and secured to ensure life safety for the occupants within.

Securitech proudly partners and tests with a wide array of door manufacturers providing proven life safety and high security solutions.

Securitech is the first door hardware manufacturer to have products surpass both FEMA 320 and FEMA 361 guidelines to protect the public from extreme wind load and flying debris conditions that result from tornadoes.

Securitech multi-point solutions have been tested with assemblies including door products from Ambico, Ceco Doors, Mesker, Insulgard, Windsor Republic & Steelcraft Manufacturing. Inc. Consult the factory for a current list of door manufacturers.

Originally designed to prevent forced entry and meet safety code requirements, Securitech’s multi-point locking systems are ideally suited to meet FEMA 320 & 361 tornado guidelines and testing criteria found in the ICC 500-2008 Standard.

Frames, doors and hardware components are tested together as an assembly. By design, doors and frames are transferring load, created by wind or debris impact, to the main structure of the building. Locking hardware ensures that doors stay locked and do transfer that load regardless of the opening’s handing and/or function.

The strength inherent in Securitech’s multi-point locking systems provide perfect solutions to withstand these extreme loads and redistribute the load more evenly around the perimeter of the door opening.

Meets FEMA 361, 320 & NSSA ICC 500-2008.
