The main purpose of a shelter is to provide a space where you and your family can
survive a tornado or hurricane with little or no injury.
However, our shelters offer many other things:
* a safe place in case
of a robbery
* an extra bedroom, if needed
* a safe place to store valuables
* fireproof storage
* an underground cellar for food
* a place to stay if electricity goes out
* my favorite, peace of mind
Basic Storm Shelters consist of these standard features:
- Metal shelter with heavy duty
channel iron bracing.
- Prepackaged magnesium anodes.
Each shelter receives the required number of these anodes
for cathodic protection against corrosion. These anodes add
many years to the already long life expectancy of our
- Double exterior coating for
flawless moisture protection.
- Interior is primed, painted,
- Turbine vent keeps fresh air
circulating through the shelter.
Each vent has insect screens.
- We install (4) heavy duty
hinges and (4) heavy duty latches on door. Each door
has a (3/4") 3 point slide quick latch.
- Door also has lift cylinders
to make it easy to lift and lower.
- The top of our storm shelters
are approximately 2’ below ground.
- Door opening is approximately
30” x 70”
- Regular steps with removable
We install welded on junction boxes, light switch boxes, &
plug in boxes in each shelter.
- Inlets for electric lines,
cable, telephone lines, etc.
We install a 100 amp breaker box in each shelter.
Please check the area where the
shelter will be installed and make sure that there are no
underground lines and no above ground power lines directly over
the shelter location. Please remove trees, fences, etc. so
that we may install the shelter.
Garage Storm Shelter
We are offering our above ground
shelters with doors large enough to drive a vehicle into the
shelter. These doors are put on our 10' wide above ground
shelters. A 10' wide 20' long shelter would be large
enough for a small to medium size vehicle. For a full size
car or truck, you would probably need a 10' x 30' shelter.
For 2 full size vehicles, you would need a 50' long shelter.

A Message about F-5
When we started checking into building
underground shelters, we were very thorough. We talked to several
engineers about the structure, strength,
and durability of different types of shelters.
We were interested in fiberglass
shelters because they were cheaper, light, and easy to install. We were warned that
a fiberglass shelter is not safe from a severe tornado.
Then we started researching concrete
shelters. Again, these shelters have many bad points. The concrete walls sweat and
often become moldy inside. Sometimes the concrete cracks and seeps water.
Then, we thoroughly checked into metal
shelters, and found that if coated properly, they are safe, long-lasting, and stay dry
inside. Compare our shelters to any other on the market. They are better than
any we have found. You might find a cheaper shelter, but it will not have the
quality of our shelters.
