The storm shelters are 2 prefab concrete pieces that are joined and sealed before installation. Installation generally takes half to one day.
The units measure 6 ft. by 8 ft. and can easily hold 10 to 12 people. There are two air vents on top and a heavy-duty metal door.
The shelters have metal steps and hand rail entrances. The elderly and/or handicapped persons may require assistance in entering the shelter. If an elder and/or handicapped person will get disability confirmation from their medical doctor, they could be eligible for an above-ground (safe room) shelter.
