UNDERGROUND SHELTERS vs ABOVE-GROUND SHELTERS
DEBUNKING THE MYTH THAT ABOVE-GROUND SHELTERS ARE JUST AS GOOD.
There are numerous shelter options available on today’s market but they all fall into 1 of 2 categories… underground solutions and above-ground solutions. Although the engineering involved with above-ground shelters has improved greatly, above-ground designs still run a distant second when compared to an underground shelter solution.
The ugly truth about tornadoes comes in the form of damage statistics, and those statistics all echo the same thing. They show that the majority of damage caused in a tornado is caused by wind borne objects. From random loose debris to large objects such as vehicles, tractors, trains and buses; everything can potentially become a virtual torpedo in a tornado. There is truly no limit to what the high winds of a EF5 tornado can hurl at you. In light of those statistics, there is no denying that even the best engineering and strongest materials will still have major vulnerabilities when pummeled by a wind borne objects in a severe tornado.
The ONLY real solution in shelter engineering is to be underground thus being completely insulated from wind borne objects. So, while engineering is getting better and shelters are getting stronger, anything above ground is still highly vulnerable. Nothing beats and underground shelter and we build the biggest and best underground shelters on the market.
NOT ALL UNDERGROUND SHELTERS ARE CREATED EQUAL
WHY STEEL SHELTERS ARE FAR SUPERIOR TO THE REST
There are lots of underground shelters available today but make no mistake, they aren’t all built to last. RSC steel shelters acclimate to the temperature of the ground by expanding and contracting slightly. The flexible nature of steel makes it the perfect material to build underground structures from. Our steel storm shelters are coated with rubberized coating which stops corrosion and guaranteeing the shelter will last for generations. With our steel storm shelters, there is no worrying about typical issues like corrosion, cracks, mold, moisture or collapses due to exposure to the weather and earth. Additionally, unlike traditional concrete shelters… RSC shelters are installed completely below the earth’s surface so there isn’t an unsightly 3ft hill in your yard. It’s undeniable; our shelters are the SAFEST option in a tornado or extreme weather.
The shelters pictured below are common storm shelters and are available in every size. From residential shelters starting at 4’x8′ to school super shelters as large as 30×50 we have shelters to fit your exact needs.
THE IMPORTANCE OF QUALITY IN STORM SHELTER ENGINEERING
In a state that can get anywhere from 50-100 tornadoes a year, the likelihood of being caught in a tornado is great. It’s imperative that you implement the right plan with the highest quality with the most cost effective strategies to ensure the safety of everyone in the shelter. In addition to building the highest quality shelters available; Our pricing is extremely competitive. We are often half the price of other community shelter builders and we do not sacrifice quality for our bottom dollar.
The quality of our work is unmatched and never compromised we are the leaders in the field; exceeding industry standards for quality and craftsmanship.
Building quality storm shelters for commercial and residential use.
RSC truly builds the best tornado shelters available. With more than a decade of experience building underground shelters; RSC has a resume’ you can trust and rely on. Our shelters are built for quality in every aspect of the fabrication. We engineer our storm shelters out of steel because it produces the best end product, not because it’s cheaper or easier. Using steel is more difficult and more costly than alternative materials but our focus is protecting lives. Cutting corners for the sake of increasing our profit margin is out of the question.
