CHOOSING A STORM SHELTER COMPANY: WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
We’ve compiled a list of the most important things you should know and look for when choosing a storm shelter company.
These storm shelters are both 6×8 on the inside, but the easy access storm shelter is 8″ taller, making it 6’10” inside instead of 6’2″. Both storm shelters have 6 steps, but the steps in the easy access storm shelter are wider and more of a “staircase” style. The stairs do take up more room on the easy access storm shelter, but there is plenty of space behind them to store emergency supplies and important documents.
It’s safe to use as soon as we are finished with the installation. We’ve had several homeowners have to get in their shelters just a few hours after installation.
