It must be located within 150 ft. of the residence. If you have additional questions, please contact us at 800.222.8183.

How would this product last as far as rust and corrosion if it was installed outside exposed to the rain and wind and the sun?

Asked by Moca September 9, 2016
1
Answer

This item will not do well in the weather. It is not water proof and was never designed to be outside exposed to direct elements. It will need to be installed on an outside slab that meets the concrete specs with a shed or structure covering it entirely from the elements. It also should be within 150ft of the home.

Is there a company that would be willing to install this item?

Asked by LM March 9, 2019

Perfect storm shelter
This item was delivered on time. Assembly was pretty easy. The quality was super nice and durable. The sliding door is my favorite. I also added battery operated lights in the ceiling which makes it even better. I put a shelf on opposite side to storm all my emergency supplies.I have already recommended it to any friends that were on the fence about buying one. A good product for a good price with no hidden fees. You cannot beat that.

Very well engineered. I thought it was easy to assemble in my basement and only required an extra set of hands for the roof panels and the door. I have a walkout basement so I simple used a hand truck to bring each panel in as I needed them.
