Bomb Shelters

Designing for the Threat:

Some may and some may not need or want an “Ultimate Bunker”. Safety Bunkers takes this key point into consideration looking at the local threats which helps our customers avoid over design. As an example if you currently are not in the vicinity of a prime target and you do not have severe weather variations, you may want only the minimum soil cover for radiation attenuation. Safety Bunkers can assist with a threat assessment which will aid you in making a more informed decision between high-end bunkers with NBC filtrations and customized for all hazards vs. a less expensive version.

Primary Targets: Targets are designated as either primary or secondary. ‘Primary targets’ are facilities that would be considered by our enemies to be either retaliatory in nature, or strategically threatening. Such facilities as C3I facilities (command, control, communications and intelligence), airports with runways over 2,000 feet; military bases, munitions dumps, and sub-marine pens would be considered as primary targets. Nuclear power plants may also be considered as a primary target.

Secondary Targets: Secondary targets would be areas or facilities that would allow for continued function or quick recovery of the infrastructure and government, such as hospitals, large populations, reservoirs, power plants, water treatment facilities, large mining operations, refineries, or large areas of commerce or banking. If the enemy wishes to destroy the nation and people, they will target both primary and secondary targets. If they wish to use our infrastructure for their own benefit, they will leave the infrastructure in place.

Natural Disaster: There are few, if any, areas of the United States that are not prone to some type of natural disaster. Do not place your shelter below the water level of local lakes, ponds or rivers. Do not place your shelters below the 100-year flood level of your area. Dykes and dams may rupture and rivers may rise. Do not place your tornado storm shelters in areas where you might receive flash floods, snow slides, or landslides.

Bunker builders like to use corrugated steel, unlike rigid materials, because it moves and bends with the earth’s movement. If installed correctly, corrugated steel shelters do well during earthquakes and blasts to 200 psi. However, do not place your shelter on, or in close proximity to, earthquake fault lines.

If installed correctly, steel shelters make wonderful emergency fire shelters. Always evacuate if possible, or if told to do so by local authorities. Steel underground shelters make a great place to store valuables that you are unable to take with you in the event of sudden evacuation. Always keep the area for your underground storm shelter entrances clear of debris and timber. Keep at least one entrance away from your home, garage, or other large buildings.

We focus on designing to our customers’ needs

Safety Bunkers carefully consider the wants and needs of our clientele when designing a tornado storm bomb shelter. We consider extremes in weather when deciding on your depth of cover. A cover of 8 to 10 feet will give excellent blast protection, as well as assure that your storm tornado shelter will remain at a constant temperature. Most shelters at that depth remain between 45 and 65 degrees Fahrenheit.

Entrances can be customized to enable handicapped people to access the shelter or underground bunker. When choosing the size for you underground bunker or storm shelter, we recommend planning for 11 square feet of floor space, or 88 cubic feet of air space per person. Each person will require about 11 more square feet of floor space for food and supplies. We offer carbon dioxide scrubbers, if the number of expected people exceeds this requirement.

Customizations are the rule, rather than the exception. For maximum occupancy plan one bunk or hammock for each 3 people. Each person will then use the bunks for an 8-hour period. Do not forget to include living space. When you are not sleeping, you will want a comfortable place to sit for eating and socializing.

There are many unique and interesting bomb tornado storm shelter designs, which have been constructed from a basic plan. Sometimes several bunkers are welded or bolted together in varying arrangements. This can be done end to end, perpendicular, or in a parallel configuration. Connecting end to end in corrugated steel storm bomb tornado shelters can sometimes be facilitated with a simple banding kit. Longer storm bomb tornado shelters in this configuration may require smaller diameter walkways between the individual units.
