We stand behind our work with the highest quality craftsmanship, materials, and include a lifetime transferable warranty with each shelter. Our tornado shelter and safe rooms have received a “pass” rating from the Texas Tech Wind Science Research Center, been reviewed by the American Tornado Shelter Association, and National Storm Shelter Association.

Storm shelters by Smart Shelters are engineer-approved and can be installed in as little as four hours (depending on size).  All garage or outdoor tornado shelters are constructed with the following materials:

  • 10 gauge steel walls.
  • ¼” steel lids.
  • Outer leak and corrosion protection with a marine grade coal tar application. NOTHING protects underground storm shelters better!
  • Removable handrail, adjustable stairs, and carpeted benches.
  • Back lid is removable allowing for an additional exit point.
  • Front lid is patented, auto-latching, and has 3 locking points to insure the lid stays securely closed.
  • Over 120″ of air breathing space.
  • Lifetime transferable warranty.
  • Includes battery operated fan/light combo.
  • Lockable outer lid allows for the shelter to be used as a safe to store valuable documents, guns, ammo, or valuables.
  • Exceeds FEMA and ICC 500 guidelines.
  • Engineer seal of approval.
  • Optional hydraulic jack to raise lid (if needed).
