Customer's Tornado Guard Storm Shelter Photos
Workers shown measuring out the precise area where the Tornado Guard is to be placed within the slab. A hole 7' x 7' x 49" deep (depending on slab height) is dug and the unit is placed inside and leveled on a compacted base.
(The Six Foot Shelters are dug around 72" deep.)
The Tornado Guard is set and back-filled. Note: Before concrete is poured, run ventilation pipe and, if you plan to install the Guard Alert System, run electrical conduit for wiring to Guard-Alert. Install rebar or cables. You are now ready to pour the concrete slab.
Sand and dirt are used to backfill the hole and secure the Tornado Guard.
After slab is poured, the Tornado Guard is completely secure beneath the concrete, ready to use!
