Safe Room Quality #WRN #Skywarn

SAFE ROOM QUALITY


The presence of a National Storm Shelter Association (NSSA) seal on residential safe room implies that the shelter was:

  1. Designed by a registered professional architect or engineer.
  2. Verified by a NSSA - approved third-party engineer to be compliant with International Code Council (ICC) Standard ICC-500 and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) guidelines.
  3. Installed as per instructions on the design drawings or as the producer's Quality Assurance Plan (QAP) attached to the drawings.
  4. Inspected for proper installation described by an installation checklist.

So NSSA Producer Members assure reliability of safe rooms by following the Safe Room Standards Compliance Verification Process unique to NSSA, and provide an Inspection Checklist and Certificate of Installation.
 
      QUALITY OF NSSA SHELTERS IS ASSURED BEFORE THE NSSA SEAL GOES ON
