Building a Safe Room or Safe Building?Insulated Concrete Safe Rooms with TF Forming Systems

Every year, more than 1,200 tornadoes touch down in the United States. Many of those in the area referred to as Tornado Alley. In the last several years, the number of people left homeless, injured and even killed has increased in some areas.

At TF Forming Systems, we are on a mission to offer disaster resistant safe rooms, and even better, complete safe homes and safe structures.

Our insulated concrete forming systems offer both home and commercial residents the peace of mind of being in a solid, concrete structure. How? Our walls are poured-in-place concrete walls with insulation on either side and reinforced with rebar and, often times, Helix fibers. Insulation on both sides of the wall allows the concrete to cure slowly. The slower the cure, the stronger the wall. Our walls are 50% stronger than traditional concrete walls without insulation.  Additionally, the insulation offers safety and impact resistance from flying debris. Adding rebar and helix to the concrete can give the walls up to 250 mph wind resistance giving the home or commercial building a tornado or hurricane resistant home.

All of these combined offer residents safety from multiple issues that come with many natural disasters, including tornadoes, hurricanes and floods.

A safe room or a safe building?

TF Forming Systems offers safe rooms of any size to be built below grade or above, depending upon your needs and budget and can be added on to an existing structure or built inside one. They can be easily designed for both residential and commericial buildings.  

But why build a safe room when we can offer you a safe home and safe building?

Residential: We can construct homes of any size to be disaster resistant. Know that your family can be safe in their home rather than seeking shelter with perhaps only seconds to spare.

Commercial: Why put your company and your employees and clients in harm’s way when you can prevent it? TF Forming Systems offers wall systems for any type of commercial structure that can keep all of your assets safe in times of crisis.

Schools: More and more, TF is receiving requests for more information from school districts seeking to improve the quality of safety for their students. We can build gymnasiums or other parts of school buildings to act as safe rooms in an effort to house large numbers of students in times of man-made and natural disasters.

Government and medical: The information and the services you house is crucial to the livelihood of many. That’s why it’s important to ensure that information and the people inside remain safe. At TF, we have experience in building structures that meet medical and government needs.

TF Forming Systems can offer you a safe room or building affordably. Call us today to learn more and request a bid. 800-360-4634
