Concrete Slab and Anchoring Options 

Concrete Slab and Anchoring Options 

New Construction

Designate an area of 10’ W x 12’ L x 12” H of concrete with one layer of ½” rebar every 12”.Torshel comes to install the unit 10 days after the concrete is poured.

Existing BuildingsStandard Anchoring

First of all, we need to make sure that we can maneuver and move the shelter inside the building; pallet jacks and forklifts are used for this task.

Secondly, we need to make sure that the concrete slab is appropriate for the installation. If the concrete slab is not cracked and the slab is big enough then, we will use the standard method -one 3/4” x 4, 3/4” anchor every 12”.

Core footings – $999

If your concrete slab is over 20 years old, and or if it has big cracks, we will make, 4 -8” diameter x 32” deep holes, refill them with concrete and use 4 ¾” x 18” J-shape anchors, the remaining anchors will be ¾” x 4”. Before performing this method, please call 811 or the equivalent to make sure that there are no utilities under the slab. This method cannot be done if the slab has post tension cables.

Outdoor Safe Rooms (Two trips):

Torshel recommends an area of at least 10’ W x 12’ L x 10” H of 5,000 PSI concrete with one layer of ½” rebar every 12”.We will make 12-footings for the slab; each hole is 8” x 32”. By using this method, we make sure that the concrete slab will be properly anchored to the ground. For these particular units, 5 cubic yards of concrete (20,000 lb.) are used. A wheelchair ramp can be added at no extra cost. In addition, this installation method will involve two trips to the site:

1)   First trip: Construction of a concrete slab – After the curing process has taken place (approximately 7-10 days), a second trip is made.

2)  Second trip: Proceed with the actual installation of the unit.
