Safe Rooms

Our Standard Size Safe Room

All of our Shelters meet the National Performance Criteria for Tornado Shelters. Remember, many shelters on the market don't meet these requirements. Our shelters are built for safety, comfort, and long life expectancy. Our Shelters will provide a space where you and your family can survive a tornado, hurricane, or other disaster.

We have done a lot of research on above ground shelters, most commonly referred to as "Safe Rooms". On several occasions, I have been in contact with the Wind Engineering Research Center at Texas Tech University. They have done extensive research on different types of Safe Rooms, including metal Safe Rooms. All of our Shelters and Safe Rooms are made of heavy gauge metal. The metal we use is almost twice as thick as they require it to be. Our underground Shelters, Safe Rooms and anchoring systems have all been tested for safety by a structural engineer.

Our Safe Room is brought to your location completely assembled. We install this Shelter anywhere you are pouring a concrete slab for a new home, business, office, or pouring concrete to add a room or patio to an existing home.

When you are framing to pour this concrete foundation, remember, the concrete under the Safe Room and extending 1 foot past the Safe Room on all four sides, has to be at least 16" thick. Example--a 7' wide by 10' long Safe Room --the concrete will be 16" thick in an area 11' wide and 12' long.

When installing the Safe Room inside a home, no walls or ceiling can be attached to the Safe Room. Our Safe Rooms can be installed in a walk-in closet, pantry, bedroom, etc.

The door in a 6' tall Safe Room or Above Ground Shelter is approximately 5'10" tall and 34" wide. In the 7' tall shelters, the door is about 6'6" tall and 34" wide. This door has a pick-proof hardened steel, deadbolt lock. The Safe Rooms can be used as a security vault, closet, storage room, etc. as well as a Storm Shelter.

We are now building a safe room that has smooth outside walls. They are painted white and are very attractive. If you want to you can repaint any color you choose. All of our shelters and safe rooms are designed by a structural engineer to withstand 330 miles per hour wind. All are certified and meet or exceed all of FEMA's requirements. With the safe rooms listed here, the dimensions are given for the outside of the safe room. If you are going to put this in a home or business that you are going to build, we can build to fit in any area you have chosen. For example: If you have an area 5'4" wide by 6'8" long and 7'1" tall we can build the safe room 5'3" wide by 6'7" long by 7' tall, so it will fit in the area you have chosen.

No walls or ceilings can be attached to the safe room. They can be touching as long as they are not attached. We can put a 4" pipe out the top or anywhere you want us to, to hook the air conditioning duct onto the safe room. Inside, the pipe will have a slide to close it off when you don't need the AC. We put the plug in and frame for your light fixture, so you can have electricity inside. The inside is primed, painted and carpeted. The outside is coated with a white epoxy primer and white paint. This will save you some expense because the walls of the home next to the safe room will not have to be finished with paneling, etc.

We can deliver the safe room to the location where the home or business is being built. The safe room would have to be placed into wet concrete by your home builder. This can be done with a backhoe, crane, or whatever the home builder has available. Remember--the concrete under the safe room and extending 1' past the safe room on all 4 sides has to be poured at least 16" thick with plenty of rebar. Example--a 10' long by 8' wide safe room--the concrete would be 16" thick in an area 12' long by 12' wide.

If you are wanting the underground shelter under your home, we can put the shelter down where the shelter door entrance can come up into a closet, bedroom, or anywhere you need it to be.

The door is almost flat against the concrete foundation. The dimensions of the storm shelter door is about 32" by 71". The fallout shelter door is 38" by 44". We can deliver and install the underground shelters or any above ground shelter that is going outside the home.

We can custom build our safe rooms to fit in small areas such as under a staircase, in the back of a walk-in closet, etc. We can also build them large enough to be used as a bedroom, closet, pantry, office, etc.

The safe room will still have the heavy duty latches inside in case of a tornado or an intruder. We also custom build the doors whatever width you need from 18" to 38" wide. The doors can be put on either side or either end of the safe room.

We charge $2.65 per mile for delivering shelters up to 6' wide and up to 20' long. Any shelter from 7' to 8' wide and up to 20' long will cost $3.25 per mile for delivery. Any shelter over 8' wide or 20' long will cost $5.05 per mile, plus the cost of the over width permit. (example: From northern Louisiana to southern Florida, I paid $130.00 for a permit on a 12' wide shelter.)

 

Below are answers to some frequently asked questions:

Q--Can the saferoom be used if there are chemical and biological agents outside?

A--The normal saferoom is not safe from chemicals or germs. We can build it with an airtight door, add the appropriate vent pipes and add the chemical and biological filtering system to make it safe from any chemicals or germs known to man. This would add about $9,680.00. to the price of the saferoom.

Q--Can the saferoom be used to stop radiation or a bomb blast?

A--No--It would offer much more protection than your home, but it would not be safe. We can build a saferoom for that, but it is much more expensive than having it built underground.

I started this business in 1995. One of the shelters I installed on April 14, 2000, was hit by a tornado on Easter Sunday of 2000. The home owner called and told me that the shelter possibly saved 7 lives. His home was completely destroyed. That makes me very proud of what I do. We have excellent shelters and we do not cut corners when building them.
