Monday - Friday 10 AM - 4:00 PM (Dave and/or Clay are usually in the shop earlier but may not be able to grab phone. Leave a message if you miss us. We will return your call or send you a brochure if you leave your mailing address on the voice mail.
Saturday's are by appointment only. We are glad to work with famlies for appointments during the week later than the typical shop hours when those are arranged.
We build standard sizes and styles to be able to turn out units in a timely manner, but we are glad to create a custom size unit to fit your needs. We have both below and above ground shelters. Our above ground unit, 'the SafeRoom' meets or exceeds FEMA 320 requirements and has been tested at Texas Tech University Wind Science for 250 mph wind force and approved as a unit safe to be used above ground. The 250 miles wind force testing that was done at Texas Tech on our original 10 gauge steel plate unit indented the steel by approximately 1". They allow a unit to pass testing as long as it does not indent beyond 3". Our unit will prevent debris from entering with you and your family in the strongest of storms (F5). It had inches to spare and we now build the unit from 3/16 plate steel. All unit doors are Texas Tech tested. We have also received our third party certification from a professional engineer to give added assurance that our manner of building the units and of attaching or installing the unit is approved to stand up to high wind storms.
We build a quality storm shelter. The units we build are not 'cheap' and we do not mass produce. Consider what you would want to be standing between your family and the strongest forces of nature: just enough or near absolute? The FEMA 320 guidebook tells us that 'near absolute' is the most you can attain with shelter designs. No one can predict what the next storm may bring but you definitely are more secure with the near absolute that a steel shelter can give you.
We realize that some are concerned with being in a steel shelter during a storm with lightening present; the video below explains that there is no need for concern.
No matter what your circumstances are, we can build a safe shelter to fit your needs.
