Concrete slab and anchoring options
Designate an area of 12’ W x 24’ L x 12” H of 6,000 PSI concrete with one layer of ½” rebar every 12”. Torshel comes to install the unit 7-10 days after the concrete is poured and cured.
Core Footings -$2,000
If the concrete is 4” of thickness and due to the size of this unit, Torshel recommends using the core-footing method, which consists of 12, 8” diameter by 32” deep holes, refilled with concrete, and using 12 J-shape anchors, ¾” by 18” 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 14’ W x 28’ L x 10” H of 6,000 PSI concrete with one layer of ½” rebar every 12”. We will make 30-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, 13 cubic yards of concrete (52,000 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:
- First trip: Construction of a concrete slab – After the curing process has taken place (approximately 7-10 days), a second trip is made.
- Second trip: Proceed with the actual installation of the unit.

If you need to offer protection to more than 100 people, Torshel recommends positioning several 8’ x 10’ or 8’ x 20’ units, one next to each other or separated. This way, you save money and offer more comfort to the occupants of the units.
