RESIDENTIAL SHELTERS

 

Keep your home safe and secure with one of our residential shelters. This shelter can be added to your existing home or can be incorporated into the construction of your new home. You also have the option of having the shelter as a separate entity somewhere close to your home. Our residential shelters have been used for safe/panic rooms, storm shelters and even gun safes. Please do not hesitate to call us to discuss your individual needs for your shelter.

Sizes

8'8" wide x 12'0" long is the standard size unit. However, we offer other sizes ranging from 8'8" wide x 8'0" long to 8'8" wide x 16'0" long or in any other 4'0" wide additional increments necessary to meet your needs.

Ventilation & Conduit

There are holes for ventilation for air supply in the walls and for HVAC in the roof panels. A sleeve for an electrical conduit can be installed upon request as well.

Doors

All of Forever Safe Shelter's doors open inward into the shelter at no additional cost to you. We have three different door types for you to choose from in order to make sure your needs are met.

Structural Details

Our shelters are constructed of panels welded together and anchored to an above-average concrete slab. Each wall panel is made using 4" steel channel welded into a rectangular unit with a #4 rebar system welded inside. High strength concrete is then added and cured for 30 days prior to installation. The roof panels are made in like manner but are made from a higher strength 4" channel system that includes a #5 rebar system welded inside. The entire unit can be anchored to your slab using either steel plates embedded into your concrete slab or by installing 2"x 2" angles welded to our wall panels and then drilled and anchored into your slab. The shelters weigh about 600 pounds per lineal foot.
