Vent Block 8'X16"
The Vent Block provides safe ventilation for a storm shelter of concrete or block. The Vent Block is sized 8”X16". It is built with either a weld stud design to allow it to set in place of a block and be anchored during the concrete back fill process or angle iron frame for anchoring with wedge anchors in to the shelter wall.
Our Vent Block is made of 3/16 steel plate. It has an expanded metal grid to prevent debris pieces from entering the shelter.

Steel Storm Shelters made an excellent steel door for our existing concrete storm shelter. They worked carefully with us long distance by phone and email to build a great fitting door at a very fair price. I certainly recommend their services.

How safe are our products?
All SafeRoom and Door designs have been tested and approved for withstanding 250 MPH wind force (F5 Tornado) at Texas Tech Wind Science Research Center. We have been numerous times to TTU when a new design is implemented, including the currently offered SafeRoom and SafeDoor
They have also been reviewed and approved by a third party engineer and meet or exceed FEMA and ICC 500 standards.
What can be customized?
Each shelter is built to order. Everything can be customized, from size to functional add-ons, such as:
HVAC hook up
Deadbolt for securing valuables
Do you keep shelters in stock for quick ship?
At this time, we do not keep a stock of ready made shelters. All shelters/doors are built to order with an average lead time of 6 weeks.
What keeps the shelter from being lifted up and carried away by storm winds?
The attachment to the concrete slab in your garage, carport, workshop, or patio by use of either a chemical anchor system or a wedge anchor system. Both are approved by our engineer stamp. Storm winds lift things when they can get beneath them. The attachment to the concrete slab anchors the unit to that slab so that the weight of the slab keeps the unit in place. The steel walls do not allow debris to penetrate and harm the occupants.
What makes the shelters strong?
Full steel construction with 3/16" steel plate on the floor and walls. We also add a 4" channel around the exterior walls for added protection from falling debri. The door is built from 1/4" steel and features 6 points of attachment - 3 heavy duty steel hinges welded on and an A-311 3 point locking system that engages with one lever.
What if the door becomes blocked by debris?
Our doors are tested to open into the shelter or out of the shelter. Most families prefer the in-swing of the door so debris do not block the door from opening. You should wait for responders to arrive rather than climb over debris that could cause bodily harm.
