Tornadoes & severe weather are a concern across much of the country. Shipping containers are the ideal size for a built-in disaster shelter near your home.
Partially buried or underground containers make excellent storm shelters. With appropriate wall reinforcement and a good ventilation system, they are large enough to accommodate several people in an emergency, along with suitable supplies. They can easily be made handicap-accessible. Consult your local zoning department when planning excavation for a storm shelter near your home or office.
