WHO WE ARE AND WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
Our names are Marty and Darlene Strough, and we are the owners of
ForceShield Tornado Doors, LLC. We have been manufacturing and
tornado doors since 2013. Until recently, we also manufactured above-
ground indoor tornado shelters for many years.
During this time, we have talked to literally thousands of people about
storm shelters. One common theme that we heard far too often was that people who already had a site-built safe room, typically concrete-block or solid concrete, believed their existing door to be unsafe in the event of a tornado.
When delving further into the discussion, more often than not, their existing door was nothing more than a residential or commercial hollow-metal entry door. These types of doors were never intended to withstand the forces of a tornado, and unquestionably would NOT offer adequate protection.
And so, ForceShield Tornado Doors was born out of a desire to offer a better, safer, easy-to-function alternative for use in existing site-built shelters and new construction of site-built shelters. We manufacture the doors at our northwest Arkansas facility.
