Storm Shelters


Design Process

 Our company has been researching to design and bring a residential storm shelter to our local market.  We decided to team up with Delta Engineers to design a precast residential storm shelter, due to their extensive knowledge in the precast industry.  The design evolved into an above ground residential storm shelter model #HT-69-SS.
