SAFESPACE 500 SERIES

SAFESPACE 500 SERIES

ICC has adopted FEMA criteria for the design and construction of a safe room that provides near-absolute protection for occupants from wind and wind-borne debris. With SafeSpace 500, safe rooms and storm shelters can be constructed to FEMA 361 (3rd Edition) and ICC 500 (2014) Standards without sacrificing natural light and multi-purpose use. Utilizing McKeon’s wide span engineering capabilities, this technology can protect multiple openings and is available from 4′-4″ to 16′-4″ wide and from 4′-0″ to 18′-0″ high so as not to restrict the size of windows and other openings.
The latest edition of the IBC, Section 423, Storm Shelters, requires Group E occupancies and emergency facilities within the 250 MPH tornado and hurricane zones to incorporate safe rooms and storm shelters. These areas of refuge and safety can be detached structures or rooms within buildings. Regardless, all must comply with ICC 500 which incorporates, in large part, FEMA 361. The SafeSpace 500 rolling steel door assembly is the only wide span opening protective to comply with strict ICC 500 and FEMA 361 wind-born debris requirements.
