F5 Above Ground Storm Shelters are Built for Protection.
We manufacture our welded safe rooms in a variety of sizes ranging from 3-4 people to 16-20 people, as well as community sizes for 300+ people. All above ground F5 Storm Shelters are made using a minimum of 3/16″ thick steel, and are fully painted or powder coated inside and out to prevent rust. We can also fully galvanize your shelter, giving over 100 years of rust protection.
We are confident that we build the most functional, versatile and reliable shelters on the market. We saw a need for utility in safe rooms located in the garage. Our solution was incorporating holes in the shelter walls so that shelving can be hung for storage. The holes also act as ventilation, allowing maximum air circulation through the wall studs. This feature is an industry exclusive and sets our shelter apart from the competition. Now you can use your shelter all year long for many years to come.
Keep your family safe. At F5 Storm Shelters we engineer, test, manufacture, and distribute the highest quality multi-use shelters on the market with a lifetime guarantee. Where will you go when the sirens go off? Please call us at 1-800-807-SAFE (7233) for more information.
The F5 Econo Line is designed with a budget in mind. We used the same engineering and testing as our other shelters, but left off the frills. The F5 Econo line is safety at a bargain. Don’t mistake a good deal for corner cutting. We still use DuPont Imron enamel, ¾” Hilti anchor bolts, and 100% domestic steel.
- White DuPont Imron enamel
- Bullet-proof window in door
The F5 Standard line is the best of both worlds. People loved our integrated shelving system but also wanted a safe room that won’t break the bank. We use 100% domestic steel and engineer every design to go above and beyond the testing parameters used at the Debris Impact Testing laboratory at Texas tech University.
- White DuPont Imron Enamel
- Bullet-proof window in door
- Interior integrated shelving
The F5 PLUS line raises the bar. The integral shelving system in our top of the line shelter is an industry exclusive. We’ve designed a shelter that gives you more storage capability, more ventilation, and more protection that any other shelter on the market.
- Interior and exterior integrated shelving
- “Black vein” powder coating
- 2 exterior locking deadbolts
Our above ground storm shelters have been Texas Tech tested.
We are very stringent when it comes to testing. We want all of our shelters to withstand a category F5/EF5 storm. Using an impact test on our shelters, F5 Storm Shelter designs meet and exceed FEMA guidelines. All F5 Storm Shelter models have been designed in collaboration with a Professional Engineer (PE) as well as meet and exceed the guidelines including: ICC-500, FEMA 320 and FEMA 361. F5 Storm Shelters currently has three tested and certified storm shelter/safe room models and will be testing additional models shortly. Based on our knowledge, we have the greatest number of tested and certified models in the industry. Testing took place at the Debris Impact Testing Laboratory at Texas Tech University. We stand by our quality and guarantees, setting the industry standard by exceeding our clients’ expectations and outperforming our competition.
All of our above ground storm shelters have been impact tested and we will continue to improve and test our shelters. Check us out on Google+ for our updates.
