Survive-a-Storm StormSteps Above Ground Tornado Shelter

The StormSteps model of above ground tornado shelter was developed in coordination with experts in the manufactured housing industry. Nobody likes to talk about it, but manufactured homes (i.e., mobile homes, modular homes, and park model homes) seem to be magnets for tornadoes. Manufactured homes are simply not designed or built to withstand the winds and debris impacts of strong wind storms, let alone EF5 tornadoes.

That’s where our proprietary StormSteps above ground tornado shelter model comes into play. This shelter couldn’t be any more practical. The storm shelter is, quite literally, built into the steps of the manufactured home. The installers do a shallow excavation and securely anchor the shelter into the ground using earth style augers. Simply exit down the stairs, open the door on the side of the stairs, and enter your safe tornado shelter. Get inside, close the door, and wait out the tornado in safety and comfort.
