SHELTERS FOR LIVESTOCK
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.
