Concrete Community (meaning for over 16 occupants) Storm Shelters in Alabama are perfect for businesses, schools, daycares, trailer parks, hospitals, small towns, neighborhood associations and other organizations with responsibilities for public safety.

The advantage of having a concrete community storm shelter in areas away from home is for people to seek shelter while at work, school, shopping or travelling during an extreme weather event.

Each concrete community storm shelter can be built to hold from 15 to 300 people with the ability to add on more where needed. All above ground concrete community storm shelters are handicap accessible. Electricity, bathrooms and many other amenities can be added on.

Sizes vary according to how many people need protection. We basically add on each 7x13 unit to make it as long or as wide as needed.

6’ reinforced concrete poured as one unit.
#4 rebar cage
5000 PSI
Reinforced, inward opening steel door.
Conduit for electrical wiring inside.
Protected air vents
Bathrooms can be added

Fully compliant with FEMA P360 and ICC-500, tested, engineered and rated for up to EF-5 tornados.

Concrete Above Ground Installation

These community shelters are pre built at the factory and assembled on site. They can be placed on a slab or on a bed of gravel. They have 8” floors, so no need for a slab. Our crews will deliver and set up on site using cranes.

Merri and Steve installed a storm shelter for my husband and me. We could not be happier.From the first time I called Merri with questions, the entire interaction was pleasant. She answered all my questions, once I spoke with her, there was no need to shop around any more!They arrived at the time they said they would, and I’ve never met anyone more professional than they are.I highly recommend them and their company.

Arrival was right on time, great communication from the beginning as there was concerns regarding our garage door and being able to get it in with the clearance. No problem what so ever, set and bolted and back on the road in about an hour. Safe Room looks great and we couldn’t feel safer knowing we have it. Hope we don’t need it, but it’s an assurance for sure.

I could not have asked for a better than Merry. The service was awesome, and her patience was great (cuz I kept changing my mind). If I had to do it again I would chose her without I doubt. Thank you so much!!

We are so grateful for the experience we had with Lake Martin Storm Shelters. The fast acquisition and installation of the shelter is far above any others that we checked on. The crew that installed the shelter was extremely professional, and very customer oriented. We definitely recommend this company to anyone that is looking for a shelter.

From the moment of first contact to the install of our 8 x 10 above ground storm shelter, the amount of information, professionalism and customer service was 2nd to none. There are other places to buy storm shelters, but I would not do business with anyone else. Merry was more than happy to answer any questions. She was there from the first phone call to install. We were more than pleased with the quality of shelter we received. Honestly, we believe it's the best shelter on the market. We would not trust our family's life with any other company than Lake Martin Storm Shelters. There are ways you can finance your shelter as well. You can not afford to not purchase a shelter, it will save your family's life. We couldn't be more pleased. What a pleasure to deal with such great, knowledgeable, hardworking people. It's hard to find this quality of people and product these days. Thanks again! Mike and Kelly Delk
