Storm Shelter Installation

Storm Defense Shelters install easily in the garage, on the patio, or in an outbuilding. If you are building a home, the Storm Safe Tornado shelters can be installed almost anywhere. We have the expertise to work with your home builder and can install the shelters prior to the house closing.

The Storm Safe tornado shelters have a Registered Professional Engineer Seal and meet or exceed FEMA guidelines including FEMA 320, FEMA 361 and ICC 500.
