In-house storm shelters, safe rooms, or tornado shelters can be constructed in the home, or in existing structures that meet guidelines set out by FEMA. Each shelter can be completely customized to meet your needs.
In-house emergency shelters are preferred by those who do not have a basement, do not want to venture outside to an external shelter for safety, do not have a yard area to bury an in-ground shelter, or have accessibility issues or requirements.
The steel room shelter frame is made of 3/16″ to 3/4″ steel. Our master welder and fabricator welds 1/4″ angle to shelter ensuring structural strength and stability.
Possible places to install safe rooms are breezeways, garages, closets, and unused rooms. Each safe room is designed to meet your specific needs so no two are alike. The exterior finish can even be customized to your taste, however please be aware that a shelter that is welded in place/onsite (most basement shelters) will be unpainted (see photos).

Steel Garage Shelters
Our steel garage shelter can be made in various sizes —you tell us how many people you need to protect or give us the measurements and we’ll build it for you! This shelter is bolted and anchored to the existing concrete in your garage. Our garage shelter has been tested and passed at Texas Tech Wind Science and Debris Impact Testing Center, the same center that does FEMA testing. Each shelter bears a certificate with a serial number from the National Storm Shelter Association stating that the design, construction and installation meet the FEMA P 361 and NSSA ICC 500 2014 which are the highest standards for building tornado shelters. It is structurally built to bear wind loads in excess of 250 mph or an EF5 tornado.
