RSC has engineered several solutions for protecting livestock.  Although these shelters are primarily engineered to be above-ground solutions, these livestock storm shelters can also be buried underground.

All of our shelters are engineered from materials that greatly exceed FEMA’s recommended standards on storm shelter engineering. The RSC custom engineering is also certified by a third party independent engineering company to exceed these standards.


Exterior Lined Shelters

Don’t let the looks fool you, these may look like ordinary buildings but they are in fact heavy duty storm shelters. Because these shelters are generally installed above-ground, the aesthetics are important.  We offer options for lining the exterior of the shelters in paneling so the shelter blends well with the other buildings on your property.  These barn shelters are built using the same heavy duty material as our underground shelters. R-Panel is then attached and then the entire shelter is bolted to a cement foundation.  This above ground design allows for faster and easier loading of livestock. The livestock storm shelters can serve as an everyday barn or stalls but also act as a safe place to take refuge during a storm.

 Because we build every shelter from the ground up, there are no limits to what a shelter can include.   These shelters are more than just a concrete lined hole in the ground.  RSC shelters are a custom fit solution for your individual needs.  Our shelters can be modified in almost in way conceivable making shelter concepts a reality.  Assisted entry, secondary exits, electricity, additional storage, water inlets, restrooms, bunk beds, pet kennels…. we have solutions for every circumstance.



 Our shelters are easily modified to suit the needs of anyone.  The handicapped and elderly no longer need to worry about finding accessible safety in the face of the storm. Since the hope is to only need to use the storm shelter in rare occasions; our standard storm shelters are pretty basic.  Including ventilation for fresh air and bench seating to make the shelter a comfortable place to ride out a storm. However he sky is the limit because we build every inch!  Custom steel community shelters are completely upgraded to have a centralized electronic locking systems (for scenarios where there are multiple shelters located apart from one another), handicap accessibility, restrooms and more.  We’ve listed some of the features we commonly upgrade below but if there is something specific that you’d like and you don’t see it listed; don’t hesitate to ask.  We pride ourselves on making the best shelters in the world and we have yet to encounter a request that we couldn’t accomplish.
