Product Description


The Twister Pod Above Ground Tornado Shelter is one of our most popular models, especially for families of 4 or less. With benches for seating on both sides of the cylindrical inside, there is room for 4 and perhaps a small pet or two.  And we only use RedHead Anchor Bolts to mount the Twister Pod to the concrete.  This means there is 4600 lbs of pressure per bolt, and there are 12 bolts! That’s 55,200 pounds of pressure that keeps that unit securely in place!  And since it is made from 100% steel, you will never have to worry about the Twister Pod cracking, crumbling, or leaking. This four-person above-ground Twister Pod tornado shelter is constructed with heavy-duty 3/16″ steel in a cylindrical shape engineered to withstand EF5 tornado winds (250+ mph). It is 4.3 ft. Dia. and 6 ft. tall with two welded-in bench seats for maximum comfort. Even with the door triple-locked, a large vent supplies ample airflow without impacting the structural integrity of the shelter. The neutral color on this safety pod meshes with any aesthetic and can be situated in a carport, garage or on a backyard patio.**Special listed pricing is for delivery only to our current service area.  Please call for installation and additional delivery fee information.**

    We’re happy we have our shelter!The people who came and installed our shelter were awesome. The whole process was really smooth. We’ve already had to use ours once and we felt very safe. We have even referred our friends to the company. Overall a great experience!

    Everyone was really professional and friendly.I really appreciated the company letting me know ahead of time that they couldn’t make the original appointment. We have not had to use the shelter, but we like it. It is good to know we have a place to go when we see the tornadoes coming.

    It is easy to install!It’s a safe storm shelter and makes me feel very safe. I first saw one at The Home Depot and it looked extremely well built. Our sales person Anna was excellent and very helpful! I gave her number to some of my buddies and they will be calling to buy their own

    It is fantastic…just used it. I recommend a few accessories including optional cushioned seats. It will make the life saving experience better especially for those with health issues. The installation was fantastic and efficient. We have a great level of security in our volatile weather environment.

  21. Emily Dill

    Received Twister Pod today. Great installers, Mark and Benjamine. Great salesperson, Taylor. Hope I never have to use this thing but have peace of mind now. Thanks guys.

  22. Bill Harris

    I bought mine last year. Was very pleased how sturdy and solid this thing is. I feel safe and confident now that whenever I hear those tornado sirens going that I have a safe place for me and my family to go to. Just wish I had known that they have a newer version that is a little bigger than the one I bought. If they would have told me that I could wait another year to get the bigger one that’s what I would have done. I wish they would let me exchange it for the bigger one. I would gladly pay any difference to have more room.
