SafeSpace™ 500

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.
