If you have room in your backyard or front yard. You can also consider a Slope Top or Flat Top Cement Shelter. These OKC Storm Shelters are underground shelters and are 6’2” high. The problem in some city neighborhoods is there is not enough room to get the shelter truck in the backyard. To install an underground cement shelter we need enough room to get the shelter truck into the yard. The truck will need to backup exactly to where you want the shelter to go. We have 2 sizes for Underground Cement shelters Slope Top 6’x8’x6’2” high, 7’x10’x6’2” high. The Flat Tops are 5’x7’x6’2” high, and 7’x10’x6’2” high. For people who have trouble walking down stairs or need to have something wheelchair accessible we also have Steel Safe Rooms. Our Safe Rooms are custom built and come in several sizes, they have a 3 foot door and are 6’2” high. The Safe Rooms are also rated to withstand an F-5 Tornado.
When we install underground garage OKC Storm Shelters in the garage. We mark the garage floor and cut out the slab. Then we dig out the dirt to the size required for the shelter. After it has been dug out and is level we unload the garage shelter and lower it into the hole and finish installing the shelter. We concrete the bottom and at the top we use rebar at the top when we finish concreting the shelter.
The bigger Storm Shelters OKC cost more due to fact that they have more steel for the shelter, they require more work for the install (digging and dirt removal) and more concrete when completing the installation.
