The design and construction of the SafePorch® ensures great strength and durability. Made of 4 1/2 ” thick walls, floor and roof using high compression concrete poured over steel mesh screens and rebar, the SafePorch is like a bank vault in strength. The SafePorch® has ease of entrance and exit through a watertight door. Two ingeniously designed windows allow air circulation and natural light penetration while preventing the entrance of water or wind-driven debris.
Extreme storm resistance is provided by the fact that approximately one half or more of the depth of the SafePorch® is buried in the ground. A wide lip all the way around the bottom of the unit acts as an anchor adding increased resistance to any movement or shifting. The amount of the SafePorch® below grade depends on the height above ground of the door and floor line. Since the SafePorch® is not actually attached to the house, only set adjacent to it, destruction to the house does not affect the SafePorch®.
