Our shelters have been tested by
the National Storm Shelter Association / Wind
Engineering Department in Lubbock, TX.
Why F-5 Storm Shelters and Safe Rooms?
All of our shelters are designed by a structural
engineer. Our storm shelters meet or exceed all of the
F.E.M.A. guidelines. Our storm shelters have corrosion
protection that can triple the life of the shelters over
many of our competitors shelters. Our storm shelters and
safe rooms are designed and certified to withstand an
and more. Many shelters on
the market are made for 250 mile per hour winds, or up
to a medium range F-4
tornado. Our shelters and safe rooms are made to
withstand any F-5 tornado and even up to
330 miles per hour winds.
Most metal shelters on the market are made with metal
1/8" thick. Ours is much
thicker . Another thing to watch for is putting a steel
storm shelter and using the
concrete floor instead of a metal floor. If lightning
strikes our shelter or even if a power
line fell on the shelter, you are
safe inside. The metal is a complete ground. If you have
a concrete floor, and you
are touching the metal and the floor, you are the
ground. We build shelters
for several other storm and fallout shelter dealers all
over the country. Why not buy
direct from us and save?

If you live in a low lying area or an area prone to rising
waters from hurricanes, etc. we have the ideal safe room for
you. We can put a safe room in the first floor of a
two story home with the door entrance to the safe room on
top. Now you can enter the saferoom from the second floor of
your home. The entrance can be inside a closet or any where
you choose. When this is done, the water would be 8' or 9'
deep inside your home before it can enter the safe room.
These safe rooms can be put under homes that are built up on
poles in low lying areas where the entrance is still inside
the home. These have to be installed before the home is
built. We can put these outside an existing home. When we do
this, we build steps on the outside of the shelter going up
to the top. Once you are at the top, you open the door and
step into the shelter and go down the steps inside.
