Safe Room HQ

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide families and businesses the highest quality storm shelter possible and, ultimately, peace of mind.

Who We Are

Atlas Safe Rooms is the premier builder of Storm Shelters and Safe Rooms. We have 3 showroom locations, Joplin, MO, Tulsa, OK, and Oklahoma City, OK. In addition, our headquarters and manufacturing are located in Joplin, Missouri. For those living outside these areas, we have representatives located throughout the midwest. If you are looking for an above ground tornado shelter outside these areas, please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.

Given our extensive steel manufacturing experience, we set out to design a residential storm shelter that is substantially stronger and better than what was available in the market. We then began building custom commercial safe rooms to accommodate businesses with larger staff. It is important for us to be affordable and competitive without sacrificing quality. Most importantly, it is capable of being installed in almost any existing home as well as in new construction. The safe room is all precision steel construction (7 gauge thick steel) and can be anchored to any substantial existing garage concrete slab, basement slab, or even outdoor slab.

Atlas Safe Rooms is a proud member of the ATSA, American Tornado Shelter Association which is an organization that helps to insure storm shelter companies are producing and installing quality tornado safe shelters.

Standard Features

Emergency Exit Demonstration Image

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.

Hi-low air flow vent image

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.

Bolt locking mechanism image

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Atlas uses expandable wedge concrete anchors. Watch the video here.
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. Atlas Safe Rooms is a member and sits on the board as the President of the ATSA.

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.
