Unlike most, our shelters are completely under the normal surface level with normal installation. No ugly humps and no debris to hit the side or your shelter. You can mow over them.
Most of us have had the old "can't crack the egg" trick played on them. That and the fact most underground structures are in a rounded shape is the reason we designed our shelters with the dome roof. It's stronger. Same as tunnels, culverts, gasoline storage tanks and such are built. We've even run our backhoe across the top of ours; not even a dent!
About the design....
First we test them for leaks three ways: Visual, Zyglow, and water pressure at 4,200 PSI.
What's on the outside and inside
Building a new home? Have your contractor put one under a room, no running in the rain!
we use the best paint and sealers possible!
Right next to your sidewalk, pool, or patio is a great place also.
When installing under a slab, We can put nipples to attach to and run up a wall rather than the turban.
All of our shelters are setup to run electric/cable into them. Each have a 1/2" threaded coupler to attach too. This is how one person ran TV and electric to theirs. Using PVC.
Safety guards are our pride:
We use three 1/2" springs loaded locks on the door with both sides angle iron reinforced walls and three extra heavy duty hinges.
We don't think you can find a better shelter if your life depended on it, and it does!
Why do we go with Steel? Vs Concrete or Fiberglass?
Answer: They're extremely safe. Because of the "Faraday Effect."
In May 2010 a man in Arkansas was struck by lightning while sitting on a metal chair inside a concrete storm shelter.

Question: Your shelters are steel, what about lightning?
Ground shifts. Steel can give without cracking like fiberglass or concrete
