FlatSafe In-Garage Storm Shelter Installation in Coweta
FlatSafe storm shelters were designed to be set up in-garage and underground. With our patented lid system, these storm shelters sit flush to the floor and are typically installed under the parking area of a motor vehicle.
With our dedicated team of storm shelter installation specialists in Coweta we have perfected the art of the setup. Our unique installation process guarantees we will be in and out as quickly as possible.
Storm Shelter Installation
It’s recommended that the FlatSafe Storm Shelter is set up near the driveway, right in the garage door about a foot in the doorway. This will make it easier for Coweta emergency response crews to get the shelter if you become trapped from construction collapse or dropped debris. Possessing the storm shelter installed near the exterior of the home will also limit the amount of debris which emergency response crews will have to remove to access the lid of the storm shelter.
Storm Shelter Placement
The choice to install the shelter to the left or right side of the garage is at the discretion of the homeowner. There may be a preference based on the size of the garage, the number of vehicles parked inside, and accessibility to the shelter from the interior of the home.
Our installation contractors will arrive and discuss the positioning of the storm shelter with you and identify the exact placement of it before proceeding with installation.
Cutting The Concrete Slab
Next, we use a wet saw to cut the concrete slab. The wet saw provides precision cuts and reduces dust. As we are cutting the concrete slab we squeegee the garage to remove as much water and concrete mud as possible from the garage.
After the concrete slab is cut and removed, it’s time to bring in the bucket. The bucket is used to remove the dirt from the installation area so that there is an opening to decrease the shelter into. Part of the FlatSafe installation procedure includes removing the dirt and hauling it away to a Coweta disposal site so that the homeowner isn’t responsible for Disposing of the soil.
Installing The Storm Shelter
After the dirt is removed, the shelter is lowered into the hole and set with concrete. We install 3 unique styles of in-garage underground storm shelters in Coweta.
Our storm shelters are available for use immediately after the installation. Our storm shelter installation contractors will review all of the shelter features with the homeowner including lid opening/closing, winch operation, and basic safety tips. Our team will be available to answer any queries you (the homeowner) may have regarding the use and upkeep of the shelter while we are long and there after installation occurs.
According to a National Storm Shelter Association (NSSA) Evaluator, Dr. James McDonald, a Professional Engineer, “The FlatSafe Storm Shelter designs are well documented and well thought out”. Dr. McDonald also said, “The attention to detail is commendable”. In addition to the decisions of a NSSA evaluator, Larry Tanner, a Professional Engineer and Research Associate at Texas Tech University, stated; “The Wind Engineering Research Center at Texas Tech University applauds your company’s efforts in providing a safe product for the consumer”.
All of our Coweta Storm Shelters Are Equipped With Our Single Piece Lid System.
All of our underground FlatSafe Storm Shelters that we sell and install in Coweta come with our patented single piece lid system. The lid is 1/4″ thick steel plate with additional structural tubing to provide additional strength. The single-piece lid is larger than the framework of the saferoom opening and sits above the frame, not down inside the frame. Our lid system is a lot stronger than the typical 2-piece lid system offered by everybody else and provides more than adequate ventilation to the occupants. We also specialize in tornado shelter installation.
