QUALITY CONSTRUCTION

WHY UNDERGROUND?

The majority of injuries and deaths caused by tornadoes are the result of flying debris. Above ground shelters must be built strong enough to withstand the heaviest of objects…which they rarely do. Placing the shelter underground eliminates the threat altogether, and it is usually the cheaper option anyway.

WHY FIBERGLASS?

Iron and steel rust when exposed to water and oxygen. Although these shelters are strong, if installed underground, will eventually corrode and need to be replaced. Concrete is also a strong material to use, however it corrodes over time due to expansion and contraction and they are extremely heavy. Fiberglass is just as strong as concrete yet it is incredibly lightweight compared to both materials. Thus if you decide to move from your home, the shelter can be excavated and reinstalled rather easily. It is extremely durable and will not corrode while underground while being the most costs-effective option. Overall, an underground fiberglass shelter is the best and safest long-term investment you can make in a shelter.

It’s a bit cramped with 10 people but 6 fit comfortably. Thankfully it was only tested and we didn’t need it for it’s intended purpose.
