Safe Rooms- the modern bomb shelter!
Forget about duct tape and plastic wrap for your safe room!
What is a safe room?
A safe room is one which the goal is to rid the air of any biological contaminants such as mold, cat allergens and pollen, viruses, bacteria, noise pollution and other types of environmental pollution like biological gases from a terrorist attack. A safe room can be any room in the house which is toxin free.Such a room can also be modified so as to provide radiation protection from nuclear attack, depending on the distance from ground zero.
Who needs a safe room?
Most people most of the time can tolerate some toxicity; the time to provide protection is when…
People have weak immune systems such as the young, elderly or sick. And/or allergies that don’t respond well to drugs.
The level of toxic pollution for any reason (such as an attack), could reach such a level as to be considered dangerous to the population at large.
Info regarding a nuclear attack: Data indicates that if the blast of such an attack is survived, the radiation drops to a low level in the first 2 hours, then to a very low (almost negligible) value in the next 2 days
Building a safe room:
For soundproofing the walls and ceilings, see “Party” Walls
To build a safe room, one must bring enough uncontaminated fresh air into that room so that people will have plenty of oxygen. The answer lies in positively pressurizing a room. In order to provide occupants with a completely toxin free room, a constant flow of air needs to be drawn into the room from the outside or adjacent room through extremely high grade Hepa and/or carbon filters, so only pure air enters the room. Using the inflow duct kit for these air purifiers, bring the fresh air in safely from the outside through a duct fitted into a window or wall. When new air enters in from the outside, it filter out large particulates, then a surplus of air fills the room to capacity thereby excess air is forced out of the room through a one-way outlet duct, because the room must be airtight. In addition, a air purifier that destroys virus’ and bacteria (such as the Eco-Quest), is used in the room as a secondary unit and that will continue to function should the first fail. (Portable battery operated units are available for this purpose, too).
A standalone air conditioner might be considered, where the ionizing air purifier would be built into the ducting.
The radiation barrier is provided by lining the walls, ceiling and if needed, the floor with lead sheeting. This is easily accomplished by using adhesive to cement the sheeting the walls or to additional drywall sheets which are then applied to the walls, ceiling, etc. Lead tape is added to finish the sealing job. The more lead, the better the protection. The government protects our leaders with several inches! We ordinary citizens usually cannot afford the kind of protection the government provides our politicians.
