Fallout-Tornado-Hurricane Shelter

Multi-use Underground Shelter System

The Hardened Structures “Multi-use Underground Shelter” is a structure that offers protection from Nuclear, Biological and Chemical disasters or emergencies such as hurricanes and tornadoes. As a rule of thumb, a Fall-Out Shelter vs a Bomb Shelter should be considered only if the installation location is greater than 50 miles (80 km) from a Nuclear detonation point. Hardened Structures Fall-Out Shelters are designed by certified structural engineers and meet or exceed F.E.M.A. (Federal Emergency Management Agency) guidelines.

  • All Shelters are Approved by FEMA and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security
  • All Shelters are designed by our team of independent, licensed and specially trained Structural Engineering firms
  • Custom Designs for Community Centers, Fire Departments, Town/City Halls
