Many people prefer to shelter underground, and that makes great sense. Flying debris certainly isn’t going to penetrate 3-4 feet of earth. However, if you live in a place where a below ground shelter isn’t feasible, or if you just want a shelter inside your basement or garage for convenience, an above ground safe room is just as reliable.
Safe rooms are great places to wait out storms. Walls, ceiling, and a door all made of 10 gauge steel make sure that nothing, not a tree branch, not a ceiling beam; nothing can penetrate the safe room.

Survive-a-Storm Shelters can make this claim because we’ve dedicated ourselves to manufacturing a superior product: Survive-a-Storm safe rooms are tested at Texas Tech’s Wind Science and Engineering Research Center Debris Impact Test Facility. This particular facility is highly respected for its stringent requirements and irreproachable methods. Researchers shoot, from a cannon type instrument, a two by four piece of wood directly at a safe room panel and assess the resultant damage. This testing is rigorous, and if a particular panel of steel doesn’t pass, it’s back to the workshop. Survive-a-Storm safe room panels have undergone this testing, and they have not only passed the test, they have exceeded expectations. In fact, a two by four traveling at 250 mph can’t break through one of our safe room panels.
