This picture shows an underground shelter entrance from inside a walk in closet.  This shelter is under the center of this home.  We install the shelter before the concrete foundations is poured for the home being built.  There is a vent pipe that comes up in the wall of another room in the house.  The home builder attaches the duct work from the home air conditioner onto this pipe.  Inside the shelter we install a slide over the air inlet and exhaust.  This is the exhaust for the air that you see on the door in the picture.  You can close the air off going thru the shelter any time you like.

Another door inside a closet.  This shelter extends out from under the house.  There is an 8” turbine outside the home that is wind turned.  This keeps fresh air circulating thru the shelter at all times.  We can also fix this pipe where it can be extended thru the roof of the new home and the turbine can be put on top of the home.

Once you open the hatch door going into the shelter, you have regular steps and removable handrail where you put furniture into the shelter.  We now use a 3 pin quick latch on the doors.  We also have the latch that you see in this picture.

This 6’ tall, 6’ wide, and 12’ long underground shelter has 2 door entrances.  The house was extended out over one door of the shelter.  The other door comes up on the outside of the home.

This is a Storm Shelter installed in Maryland in 2003.


Inside a 10’W x 20’L x 7’T shelter with 3 rows of benches.  The benches on one side fold up.

Looking down into shelter we are installing, you can see the latches, regular steps, and the hand rail.  These are 2000 lb latches each.  It also has a 3-pin quick slide latch locking system.

We can put spiral steps down into a shelter if you prefer.  They actually take up a little more room than regular steps though.
