We build underground storm shelters that are made out of 12ga steel and are welded together. Upon opening the door you have a staircase that is 30″ wide to walk down. There are 8 steps to the bottom of the storm shelter. We have benches in our storm shelters that sit 20″ high along both sides and across the back wall. Additionally, you will find non-skid tape on the steps and carpeting on the benches and floors. We spray an asphaltic tar on the exterior of the storm shelter to help prevent against rust and corrosion. The door and the inside of the shelter are painted an enamel white.

Further, we have taken our storm shelters down to Texas Tech’s Wind Science and Engineering Research Center for debris impact testing and passed all the tests and we even requested additional testing which we passed, without reservation.

STORM SHELTER CONSTRUCTION
Our storm shelters are head and shoulders above the competition. During the installation we anchor the storm shelters into the ground using 4-8 yards of concrete depending on size, to prevent it from floating. Our storm shelters are completely underground, except for the door which sticks up about 6″ from ground level and is 5′ long x 2.5″ wide. The door is spring loaded to make opening it easy. There are three (3) ⅝” Sliding Pin locks on the door along with a vent. As you go down the stairway you will have a handrail all the way down to assist you. The steps are welded on and are 10″ x 29″ with non-skid tape on them. There are 10″ between every step and are quite easy to go down. When you get into the shelter you will notice that we have 14″ wide benches along both walls and across the back wall. You will also notice the carpet that’s on the floor and glued down to the benches. We paint the interior of the storm shelters and the door an enamel white.
