When you live in a tornado-stricken region, you want to make sure your shelter is outfitted with some pretty tough panels that can take a beating so that you don't have to. The panels can offer protection even in the most extreme tornado, and can withstand windows well over 200 miles per hour.

Developed by engineers at the University of Alabama, these panels can be retrofitted onto existing houses but can also be integrated into newly constructed homes.

These very tough panels can prevent the injuries and death often caused by debris that fly through the walls. These panels can resist the debris completely, ensuring that occupants of tornado shelters can rest easy knowing that they'll emerge in one piece once the tornado passes.
