Top 9 Reasons to Install a Hide-Away™ Storm Shelter

By Gina Stuelke, CEO of Kenton Brothers

Kenton Brothers is all about protecting people, property and possessions. From access control to commercial video surveillance and application specific solutions, we are your one stop shop for commercial security. The Hide-Away™ storm shelter is a valuable tool to protect all three!

Hide-Away Storm Shelters

The Hide-Away is an innovative, space-saving storm/tornado shelter that can be folded to within 19 inches of a wall, when not in use, and quickly deployed, in just a few seconds, when the need arises. It provides a safe hiding place from storms, and will withstand up to an F-5 rated tornado. Various sizes are available to accommodate different numbers of people in a home, business or school.

Hide-Away Storm SheltersMike Vogt, President and CEO of Staying Home Corp. said, “Historically, there have been two main obstacles to the storm shelter industry. Traditional units take up too much space, and an assembled unit is very difficult and expensive to ship. The Hide-Away solves both these problems, and we are very excited about how this product is going to expand the market, and provide safe haven in places where it was not feasible before, for either space or cost reasons.

There are several areas of the country where homes do not have basements, like Texas. A person can set one of these up in their garage or on a concrete slab within the finished home. Businesses can install the shelter to provide their employees a safe haven. Condos, apartments, schools – the potential is very high now that we have greatly reduced the space requirements.”
