Bolt Together above ground tornado shelter

Recently we were contacted by a homeowner who wanted to install a Family SAFE tornado shelter in his home. Once a dealer arrived on-site to measure, we realized that the homeowner’s garage was not a suitable installation location for our tornado shelter. The only other suitable location was a cement-floor storage room off the back of the homeowner’s house.

Storage Room for Tornado Shelter

The only problem? Access to the storage room was limited by a fenced in pathway that was only four-feet wide. Nowhere near large enough to facilitate loading in a 6×8 above ground tornado shelter.

In situations like this, Family SAFE is happy to offer our bolt-together above ground tornado shelter.

Our bolt-together above ground storm shelter arrives in sections and is assembled right on-site by our install team.
