As an authorized U.S. Storm Shelters distributor, we are proud to offer our customers one of the toughest safe rooms on the market.
U.S. Safe Rooms are designed for installation inside any existing home or office constructed on a concrete slab foundation. Designed as a component unit, these interior shelters can be erected inside your home or office without the need for expensive remodeling. Much like a bank vault, a U.S. Safe Room provides convenience and quick access to safety.
More than just a storm shelter, U.S. Safe Rooms come standard with dual deadbolt locks to serve as secure storage as well as a panic/intruder room.

Each U.S. Safe Room is constructed of 3/16" thick, 35,000 lb. yield, steel "C" channels on 1/4" steel frames. Each plate is mounted to the 1/4" steel roof and floor frames using 1/2" grade 5 bolts. The wall and roof channels are 8" in width with 2 1/8" ribs for greater reinforcement than can be achieved with a wider channel. The floor frame is anchored to your foundation using 1/2" Hilti® concrete anchors.
Standard sizes and prices are shown in the chart above. Custom sizes are available, please call for information.
Note: Please allow an additional 7 inches per dimension for installation. For example, a 4'x6' safe room will require 4'7" x 6'7" of floor space.
In the event of a storm, the door is secured from the interior with tubular steel cross members in addition to two deadbolt locks. Doors may be located in any wall and may be hinged to open to the right or the left.
All of our safe rooms have an exterior height of 7' with an interior height of 6'9". Air flow is handled through passive ventilation throughout the unit so that there are no openings through which debris can enter the room. U.S. Safe Rooms come standard with a base paint coat of beige.
A 20% deposit is required safe rooms and lead time is normally 4 to 6 weeks although some units may be available in stock.
Electricity, Telephone, Etc.
Our shelters do not come pre-wired for electricity or any other utilities. These items can be added by the customer following installation if desired. We recommend using a licensed professional electrician or telephone installer to handle these additions.
For concrete shelters, we recommend having your electrician drill any necessary conduit access holes in the base of one of the vent pipes on the shelter. This allows for easy installation and easier reseal than a hole drilled through concrete. We have had customers who have had electricity, telephone and even air conditioning added to their shelters following installation. In some cases, a cell phone will work in these units but it varies by location.
Safe rooms can be modified for electricity and telephone by simply running conduit below the door.
