Low Maintenance

Unlike concrete and other types of shelters, American Storm Shelters' steel construction requires no maintenance. The only requirement is maintaining the ground outside the unit to insure an aerodynamic surface.


Strength & Safety

American Storm Shelters are constructed of 11 gauge steel and anchored with 3000 lbs of pre-poured concrete blocks or 3000 lb stress anchor bolts. The doors include triple locking points and can be opened from interior and exterior insuring no one gets left in the storm. All of our shelters are FEMA approved to withstand F5 Tornado winds.


FEMA Approved

All of our shelters are FEMA approved! Meaning, you can rest assured that you are getting a quality product that you can trust and that your shelter will meet requirements for any state or government rebates or refunds that may be offered. Any company you deal with should be able to show you pre-engineered drawings that have been stamped and approved to meet FEMA 320, 361 and ICC500 guidelines. Beware of any company that does not meet these requirements!



American Storm Shelters, Inc. is proud to carry an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. We have been in business since 1970 and you can rest in the knowledge that we are a long-standing, reputable company that stands behind their product!


Steel vs. Other Products

When choosing a storm shelter, choose wisely! Invest in steel! Concrete shelters are porous and retain a lot of moisture leading to must and mildew, an uncomfortable place for your family to have to stay during a storm. Concrete also cracks when the ground shifts leading to further problems which can include leaking and infestation of snakes and insects. Many concrete shelters have been known to have standing water in them and they require a lot of repair and maintenance. Plastic and fiberglass units also often crack and break down over time. All of our shelters are constructed from high strength steel and are tested for leaks in our shop before they are ever installed into your ground. They are painted inside and out and coated with a thick hydrocide mastic coating to ensure there will be no moisture touching the unit that could cause rusting. You have the right to a dry, comfortable place of shelter in the storm. It's your money... invest in a product that will continue to serve you for years to come.


Easy Installation

Our units can be installed in as little as 2 hours! Our experienced installers can help you pick just the right place for your storm shelter. We dig with a small backhoe and use pre-poured concrete blocks so there is less mess. All of the dirt taken out of the hole is used to pack and create an aerodynamic surface around your shelter so there is no waste. Our way of doing business saves you both time and money! Schedule your installation today! American Storm Shelters, Inc. 1-800-687-4007



Your storm shelter is yours for life! If you move you can have your shelter dug up and re-installed at a different location, usually for less than buying a new one.
