@happyVIDwatcher The first priority is having a safe place to go to ensure you don’t become debris in the storm. If you have limited space in your yard like this guy did, at least you know you and your family will be safe. In the event the garage does happen to fall, at least you weren’t in the garage! Notifying your friends, family, neighbors, local EMA, etc in the rare event your exit is blocked or having a $30 5-ton jack in the shelter with you will ensure your peace of mind

So… You build a shelter because you recognize the possibility that your house could be destroyed and essentially fall over but you put the shelter next to your home witch could fall over on to the door causing you to die a slow painful death… Good idea!

@rikuk3 – appreciate your feedback. The video was designed to be raw footage so you can see the whole process. See other videos we’ve uploaded if you want to see the shorter versions

Video needs drastic editing, its far, far, far too long, the first half is as interesting as watching paint dry.

I like the shelter but cut the vid down by at least 50%

@checkmate440 You determine what location you’d like us to install your shelter. Some people want to install an underground shelter in their garage, risking the potential collapse of the entire garage on top of the shelter. Then again you can have your shelter installed in the middle of a field if you like but then you also need to be able to get their quickly to take shelter. Also, we have above ground tornado safe rooms that mount to your concrete slab so lots of options. Call if we can help

Too close to the house, I wouldn’t want to be trapped in there with the house above me

WAFF 48 in Huntsville just featured a recent install we did in Section, AL on their newscast. Catch the video and article on our website (look for link under video or in description area)

@HansSchoff
Yes I agree. Good advice!

@1betrman We no longer advise installing underground shelters in a garage slab due to the settling of carbon monoxide in the lowest part of the garage which can be very dangerous. I have heard that because of this, Florida has already banned such installs.

@1betrman If you prefer, we also have above ground steel safe rooms that also exceed FEMA guidelines with a steel door that opens inward, from 4 foot by 4 foot (to as large as 10 feet by 50 feet, the size of our community shelters). Visit the website in the description area of this video for more details.

@1betrman These storm shelters exceed all FEMA guidelines, including air ventilation for each of the storm shelter units. Some customers choose to also have in their shelters a battery operated fan, the noise from which can also help to mute out some of the noise from the severe weather as well.

The air vents don’t appear to be adequate especially if more than two persons were holded up for very long.

As most of these shelters are designed.
I fear any under ground unit with only one exit where the door opens to the out side.
