Our Standard Features – Set the Standard

emergency exits

Multiple Emergency Exits

Because each unit is constructed of modular panels, you never have to worry about being trapped inside if the door is blocked from the storm debris.  After installation, two wrenches are left inside the shelter to remove the bolts on any panel, allowing for multiple emergency exits.

High-Low Airflow Vents

Every two foot section of our storm shelter has both high and low stainless steel screened air vents.  These vents are shielded for debris on the exterior and allow plenty of airflow.

Secure 3 Bolt Locking Mechanism

The “Defender3” Model door on each Atlas Safe Room includes a spring-loaded vault-style handle that allows any user to easily engage the 3 bolt reinforced locking mechanism.

Grade 1 High Security Lock

Each Atlas Safe Room storm shelter comes standard with a Grade 1 High Security keyed lock.  Whether in a tornado, home invasion, or a secure place for valuables, once you enter an Atlas Safe Room, the danger outside will stay outside.

multiple emergency exits and modular design

Modular Design

Each Atlas Safe Room is made with modular panels, which means that each is expandable and relocatable.  As your family grows, your safe room can grow as well.  If you move, you can easily have your storm shelter disassembled to move along with you.

Indoor or Outdoor

Modular design also means unmatched versatility.  Because the above-ground storm shelter is installed in panel sections, it can be carried in one panel at a time and installed virtually anywhere.  The most popular install locations are garages, closets and basements.

Frequently Asked Questions

Atlas uses Hilti expandable wedge concrete anchors.
Atlas Safe Rooms have been tested at Texas Tech for EF-5 simulated projectile impact testing. Atlas has had multiple 3rd party engineer reviews to reinforce that our shelters meet and exceed required storm shelter codes and standards. Each Atlas Safe Room comes with an American Tornado Shelter Association (ATSA) seal of approval.
Atlas Safe Rooms EXCEED all of FEMA’s standards.
Atlas does not offer financing in-house, but we do have a growing list of resources available for your convenience here.
Overturning stability depends on the thickness (mass) of the concrete slab plus the distance the slab extends beyond the footprint of the shelter. Atlas engineering reveals that an 8” slab that extends 2’ beyond the shelter on each side is sufficient. Existing concrete slabs vary in thickness, steel reinforcement and build methods and therefore Atlas Safe Rooms certifies the structural integrity of the shelter alone.
