6x8 Concrete Above Ground Storm Shelter Features
Our manufacturer takes pride in their work and it shows in the craftsmanship of the safe rooms we install. Above ground storm shelters installed by Sprague’s Backhoe are built to withstand an F5 tornado. Each 6×8 above ground safe room has the following features:
Each 6×8 above ground storm shelter installed by Sprague’s Backhoe includes a stamped rock pattern and a steel powder coated door, which will help minimize rusting.
To maximize air flow in each safe room, there is an 8″ turbine, a 3″ vent and a vent in the door on each unit.
Our 6×8 above ground storm shelters are 6,000 PSI reinforced pre-cast concrete with 1/2″ rebar on 10″ centers and anchored down with (6) 3′ metal anchors.
This safe room weighs approximately 20,000 pounds and per the engineer, once anchored, the downward force of the anchors increase the weight to approximately 150,000 pounds.
The doors are vertically reinforced steel with a triple latch system and has been tested at Texas Tech University.
All 6×8 safe rooms installed by Sprague’s Backhoe meet or exceed FEMA 320 & ICC 500 guidelines.
The 6×8 above ground safe rooms come with a 5 year limited manufacturer’s warranty.
Each safe room is poured and delivered as a one piece unit (floor included) and made in Oklahoma.
If you need a space leveled for your safe room, we offer that service at no additional charge.
