We engineered and designed the 6′x6′ Iron Eagle Steel Yard Bunker with 7-person seating that will reduce under ground related shelter maintenance up to 50%.
(Fiberglass and concrete shelters crack.)
The Yard Bunker is installed 60 inches below ground with a 2 foot mound of dirt over the top. This fiberglass unit repels water, has a high-gloss interior and is easy to maintain. The large entry door and full-size molded stairway makes for easy access with molded seating for 8 to 12 people.
Warning! Some communities have outlawed the installation of these types of units because of occupant safety hazards caused by chemical spills within the home (paints, gasoline, etc.).
All storm shelters must be tested at the Texas Tech Wind Research Center for a Federal Emergency Management Agency F-5 rating to withstand tornados and hurricanes.
Real estate brokers have informed us that homes cannot be listed as having a storm safe room without this FEMA F-5 certificate. To see a copy of our actual certification letter CLICK HERE
