it weighs 540 pounds. standard on our shelters and can be built for any opening. in-swing design is virtually entrapment proof. three high security deadbolts make the shelter a walk-in safe. it locks from the inside with four 1-1/2" solid steel pins. according to Intertek, it's only the second door to remain operable after their testing. can be installed virtually anywhere—gun room, man cave, walk-in closet, workshop, existing concrete shelters, etc.
what the customer wants, the customer gets! custom designs to fit your space, needs and budget. if you can imagine it, we can do it. shooting ports, additional ventilation, custom dimensions, etc. you're only limited by your imagination!
meet the world's first basement tornado shelter. it can be installed along a concrete wall or in a concrete corner. no more wondering which basement corner is safest. no more "protecting" your family with a mattress. get all the benefits of the above ground model and save money.
our 5/8" A325 structural bolts are standard for structural steel connections. a larger, heavier hex head means more holding capacity than a traditional bolt. why don't other companies use them? because they're not cheap.
it's 50-100% thicker than most competitors. the most deflection after testing was 1/4"—several impacts had no deflection (FEMA guidelines allow up to 3"). our shelters are designed and built to protect your family, not to increase profit margins.
don't fall for the low-ball prices of other companies. their $5,000 shelter quickly becomes $9,500 after adding reinforcement, upgraded locks, delivery, installation, sales tax, and any other gimmicks they try to sell you. then consider that they're using 25-50% less steel than us.
