FlatSafe In-Garage Storm Shelter Installation in Muskogee
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 ground and are typically installed under the parking area of a vehicle.
With our dedicated team of storm shelter installation specialists in Muskogee we have perfected the art of the setup. Our unique installation process guarantees we will be in and out as fast as possible.
Storm Shelter Installation
It is advised that the FlatSafe Storm Shelter is installed close to the driveway, right inside the garage door about a foot from the doorway. This will make it easier for Muskogee emergency response crews to get the shelter if you become trapped from construction collapse or fallen debris. Having the storm shelter installed close to the exterior of the house will also limit the amount of debris that emergency response crews will have to remove to get the lid of the storm shelter.
Storm Shelter Placement
The option to put in the shelter to the left or right side of the garage is at the discretion of the homeowner. There may be a preference depending upon the size of the garage, the amount of vehicles parked in it, and accessibility to the shelter from the interior of the home.
Our installation contractors will arrive and discuss the placement of the storm shelter with you and establish 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 offers precision cuts and reduces dust. As we’re cutting the concrete slab we squeegee the garage to eliminate as much water and concrete sand as possible from the garage.
Following the concrete slab is cut and removed, it is time to bring in the bucket. The bucket is used to remove the dirt from the installation area so that there’s an opening to decrease the shelter into. Part of this FlatSafe installation process includes removing the dirt and hauling it away to a Muskogee disposal site so that the homeowner is not responsible for Disposing of the soil.
Installing The Storm Shelter
After the dirt is removed, the shelter is lowered into the hole and place with concrete. We install 3 different styles of in-garage underground storm shelters in Muskogee.
Our storm shelters are available for use immediately after the installation. Our storm shelter installation contractors will review all of the shelter features together with the homeowner including lid opening/closing, winch operation, and general safety tips. Our team will be available to answer any queries you (the homeowner) might have concerning the use and maintenance 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 layouts are well documented and well thought out”. Dr. McDonald also said, “The attention to detail is commendable”. Along with the decisions of a NSSA evaluator, Larry Tanner, a Professional Engineer and Research Associate at Texas Tech University, said; “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 Muskogee Storm Shelters Are Equipped With Our Single Piece Lid System.
All of our underground FlatSafe Storm Shelters that we sell and install in Muskogee come with our patented single piece lid system. The lid is 1/4″ thick steel plate with additional structural tubing to give extra strength. The single-piece lid is larger than the framework of the saferoom opening and sits over the framework, not down within the frame. Our lid system is a lot stronger than the typical 2-piece lid system provided by everybody else and provides more than adequate ventilation to the occupants. We also specialize in tornado shelter installation.
