Emergency/Safety

Near absolute protection against natural disasters.

Dome Technology’s steel-reinforced concrete structures are engineered to meet Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) 361, ICC-500, and National Storm Shelter Association (NSSA) standards and provide almost absolute protection in extreme weather events; based on current knowledge of tornadoes and hurricanes, occupants of a safe room built in accordance with these guidelines will very likely be protected from injury or death. Our domes provide peace of mind for those in areas experiencing EF-5 tornadoes, Category 5 hurricanes, earthquakes, and fires on a regular basis.

Many community safe rooms we develop are designed for multiple functions. Besides boasting safe room components, these buildings serve as first-responder facilities, community centers, religious facilities, and schools.

Our team develops relationships in our customers’ neighborhoods, partnering with community officials as well as local architects and engineers. We can also provide a design-build approach to the project, from engineering through construction and interior build-out.

Built to last a lifetime, the domes provide:

  • Open floor plans that can be customized for various uses in a community
  • Protection from hurricane and tornado winds exceeding 250 mph
  • Construction that meets LEED standards and features the latest green technologies; our team also constructs architectural domes with 90 percent local materials
  • Substantial savings compared with the cost of conventional construction
