ICC has adopted FEMA criteria for the design and construction of a safe room that provides near absolute protection for occupants from wind and wind-borne debris. With SafeSpace 500, safe rooms and storm shelters can be constructed to FEMA 361 and ICC 500 Standards without sacrificing natural light and multi-purpose use.
Utlizing McKeon Door’s wide span engineering capabilities, this new technology can protect multiple openings and is available up to 5 metres wide so won’t restrict the size of the openings for doors and windows. The complete assembly is also fire rated for 3 hours.
The SafeSpace 500 was subjected to both positive and negative pressure equal to 1.2 times the 255 mph (410 kph)design wind load
The missile impact test proves the ability to withstand wind-borne debris from a hurricane or tornado
