Tornado Shelter Systems in Arkansas is excited to offer Life Lift Vortex Vaults Shelter Beds, as seen on ABC’s Shark Tank. This innovative Shelter Bed is one of the most quickly accessible storm/safe rooms available. The Vortex Vaults Bed was rigorously tested by the Texas Wind Institute and passed the pneumatic cannon firing various construction materials at it at wind speeds of 250 MPH—the same found in EF5 tornadoes. It passed with flying colors thereby making it built to FEMA standards to withstand EF5 tornadoes and hurricane-force winds or damaging straight winds which can be deadly in Arkansas.
One of the greatest advantages is that it is installed under your bed, where it is out of sight and out of the way, until danger approaches. You or your loved ones don’t have to risk going into the storm to an outdoor shelter or drive somewhere in treacherous elements. Simply deploy and open the door for full access inside the comfort and safety of your own home. No more worries about having to navigate dangerous stairs—or worry about spiders, snakes or accessibility for those in wheelchairs or with other mobility issues. Tornado Shelter Systems in Arkansas offers three options of this innovative life-saving shelter. Each option is available to fit your Twin, Full, Queen or King-size beds. The size determines the number of people who will fit.
Full Three Stage Protection
This model was demonstrated on ABC’s Shark Tank. It usually looks and feels like an ordinary bed with your own choice of mattress and bedding; when severe weather approaches, the bed is telescopically deployed in about 60 seconds offering full protection from the fiercest tornado, earthquake or home invasion. The 57-inch height allows the elderly and those using wheelchairs, walkers and canes immediate ease of access. It’s a perfect choice for your entire family—especially those who struggle with going underground or who have trauma issues. A USB port helps keep you connected through the danger. There’s full ventilation and battery power in case there is an outage.
Slope Protection Bed
The Slope Protection Bed lifts just the head of the bed, so it is our medium-priced option. The head lifts to 38-inch head room (which is a few inches taller than a kitchen counter). Several people can sit comfortably at this end. The foot of the bed remains at 19-inch height allowing someone to lie down at the end of the shelter. You can also store valuables in it. The Slope Protection Bed gives you assurance your family is protected from tornadoes, earthquakes, hurricanes and home invasions. On normal days use the slope mechanism to watch TV, or aide in breathing or reflux problems. The Slope Protection has the same USB port, ventilation and battery power.
Standard Shelter Bed
Our most economical choice is the Standard Shelter Bed which remains at the 19 inch height but offers the same protection from tornadoes, straight winds, earthquakes and home invasions. Simply open the door and crawl under the bed to ride out the danger. This is a good option when your family is capable of crawling under the bed.
