We manufacture and install modular above ground storm shelters and safe rooms. We are based in Joplin, Missouri, which means we know firsthand how critical it is to have a safe and trusted place to go for shelter during a tornado or other severe weather.
Given our extensive steel manufacturing experience, we set out to design an above ground tornado shelter that is substantially stronger and better built than what is currently available on the market, but still affordable. Our shelters are designed with every type of home and business in mind. Each storm shelter is modular by design, which is just one of the many features of our shelters.
Atlas Safe Rooms come in various sizes to meet all your storm shelter needs. Because of our modular design our shelters can be installed in pre existing structures. If you need help deciding what size would best fit your home or business schedule a FREE on-site visit.
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.
Every two foot section of our storm shelters has both high and low stainless steel screened air vents. These vents are shielded for debris on the exterior and allow plenty of airflow.
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.
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.
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 storm shelter to remove the bolts on any panel, allowing for multiple emergency exits.
Modular design also means unmatched versatility. Because our storm shelters are installed in panel sections, they can be carried in one panel at a time and installed virtually anywhere. The most popular install locations are garages, closets and basements.
Atlas Safe Rooms can provide a storm shelter for any size business, from small offices to large manufacturing facilities. Tornadoes are most likely to occur during the afternoon hours while many people as still at work: between 3pm-6pm. More and more businesses are choosing Atlas Safe Rooms to provide a safe place for their employees and customers to go during severe weather.
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.
