Bomb / Fallout Shelters

These hatches come up to just below ground level. These can be filled with sand and covered over the top with dirt. Under these, there is a bolted on trap door inside the shelter (water tight). You take the bolts loose, the door hinges in, the sand pours in, and you have another way out. When we finish installing, these are completely concealed. The 20’ long walkway will stop the fallout from reaching the main shelters through the blast door. The dirt on top of the shelter protects the shelter from the radiation penetration the ceiling.

The welding, recoating, reinstalling the carpet, etc. is finished. These shelters have 12 fold up beds. You can see the entrance into the walkway going out to the above ground blast door.
