We understand what we are protecting, and that’s why we have designed a structure with the safest door available in both a panel system, and a welded assembly.

Safety in severe weather can depend on time and your immediate needs, severe weather can occur at any time, day or night, and can re-occur several times in the same weather system, and this was one of many factors in our design of our locking system.

These are the questions we asked during our design matrix

  • How quickly you can secure yourself and your family?
  • How many locks can you engage during a severe weather situation?
  • If needed, can you engage those locks in the dark?
  • Can the person locking the shelter door physically reach all of the locks necessary for the door to function properly?
  • How difficult is it to get inside your storm shelter from where you are currently?
