Outdoor in ground tornado shelters

For clients that live in mobile homes or do not have a garage, we offer the underground outdoor shelters.

Torshel’s newest models. They come with a bullet resistant window. You won’t feel entrapped; the window allows natural light to flow inside the shelter.

Such shelters are easier to install; there is nothing to cut, and the process is faster.

5-6 cubic yards of concrete will keep the unit inside the ground and will; prevent it from floating out of the ground.

These units come with one door and a gas cylinder; the door lifts up instead of sliding it like the garage version.

We also include an anode to prevent corrosion, plus a hydraulic jack capable of lifting 3 tons.

Torshel will give you the GPS coordinates of your shelter so you can register with the local police and first responder agencies. They will come and look for you if devastation occurs in your area.

Before the installation, you must call 811 (before digging). We need to make sure that there are no utilities in the area where the shelter will be installed. This service is offered at no cost.

All Torshel Storm Safe Shelters have been tested and approved by Texas Tech University. All of our shelters meet and exceed all of FEMA’s Guidelines.

All Shelters come with carpet floor, stairs and benches. A handrail is also included.

These units are installed in one day on average.

DIY? No problem, we can ship it anywhere in the USA.
