RemainSafe Underground Storm Shelter (Interior) 5×8

Our 5×8 Underground Storm Shelter (Interior) is designed to be placed inside your garage.

This FEMA compliant shelter is installed in the ground below where your vehicle sits. You can still easily access the shelter even with your car in the garage. It will save valuable space while providing you with the protection you need.

All of our shelter models and styles have been tested to meet or exceed FEMA 320/361 and ICC-500 criteria through the Wind and Debris Laboratory at Texas Tech University.


Product Details

The RemainSafe 5×8 Underground Storm Shelter (Interior) must be installed under a roof. It is best in the garage but you can also put it under a carport or in a sturdy shed.

These shelters are a hardened structure specifically designed to meet the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) criteria and provide near-absolute protection in extreme weather events.

Near-absolute protection means that based on our current knowledge of tornadoes and hurricanes, the occupants of a safe room built in accordance with FEMA guidance, will have a very high probability of being protected from injury or death.

Finally, all of our safety shelters are designed by engineers and are manufactured in the USA.
