Tornado Season vs. AMVIC Insulated Concrete Structures

Tornado season is here and has already showed it’s powerful force.  On March 1st over 31 tornadoes were reported across 5 states and at least 20 people were killed.  Eight of those people were high school students in Enterprise, AL where a tornado struck the brick high school causing an entire wall to collapse.  On May 4th, an F-5  tornado with winds of 205 mph struck Greensburg, KS destroying 95% of the town and claiming at least 12 lives.  Though we can’t control Mother Nature, we can attempt to minimize the damage she may bring to the Midwest with her fierce tornadoes.  AMVIC insulated concrete buildings & homes use the latest advances in building technology to provide energy efficient, comfortable, and secure structures.  By using AMVIC Insulated Concrete Forms you can have a home or building with a wind resistance of 250 MPH which is equal to an F-5 tornado.  The strength is based on the wall system from AMVIC that uses reinforced concrete captured inside foam forms that provide   insulation inside and out. The walls can be        finished any way you like - drywall, stone, siding... you name it. Once it's finished, you'll never guess that the walls are concrete, except that it will be warmer, cheaper to heat & cool, and exceptionally quiet.
