Iron Tight LLC
Tight Safe Rooms and Storm Shelters are offered in all sizes, ranging
from 4 x 6 up to 9 x 14, as well as custom orders. In order to meet the
needs of each of our customers, we offer a choice of 12 gauge steel,
3/16" steel, and 1/4" steel. However, all units hold an F5 rating.
Every Safe Room is anchored to an existing slab using the HILTI
Each unit has an inward swinging door that includes an emergency escape feature, making it nearly impossible to be trapped inside. All of our safe rooms and storm shelters feature three Medeco Maxum stainless steel, commercial grade locking deadbolts all keyed alike.

Because of our high security Medeco Maxum deadbolts, Iron Tight Storm Shelters will also serve as a safe/vault for firearms and valuables. The 1/4" Safe Room is also bullet resistant allowing it to serve as an intruder Safe Room, making it the #1 Safe Room offering the BEST protection for your family and valuables.
also Called Tornado Shelters and Weather Safe Shelters
A Storm Shelter is a bunker, cellar, or room that is designed to withstand the onslaught of severe weather conditions. They are especially useful in those areas
that experience a great deal of tornado activity, such as in the Midwest and
Southeastern portions of the United States.
For the most part there are usually two kinds: below ground and above ground. And while most people fall under the delusion that underground shelters are safer, this is oftentimes not the case. There seems to be more potential hazards with outdoor cellars than with indoor shelters. For instance, an outdoor below-ground cellar forces a person to go outside to seek shelter in the event of a tornado or hurricane.
Any storm shelter worth its salt should provide the following:
Walls, doors, and ceilings that can withstand winds of up to 250 mph.
A solid foundation.
Walls, ceiling and a main-door entrance able to withstand falling foreign objects --- propelled at roughly 100 mph.
A protected ventilation system.
A fire extinguisher, first-aid kit, at least two flashlights, 8 hours’ supply of drinking water, and a NOAA radio.
Some form of transmitter to notify the location of the shelter to emergency personnel, should the need arise.
If a storm shelter is not in compliance with these specifics, then it does not meet the basic set of standards set
by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
If you currently live in an area that is susceptible to tornadoes or hurricaines, it is a good idea to have a storm shelter built.
At Iron Tight LLC we build storm shelters that can withstand 300 plus mph winds (50 mph more than the standard required by FEMA)!
This is because our shelters are designed by structural engineers who have been in the business of protecting the public from severe tornadoes and hurricanes for years.
So give us a call today and we will fill you in on how we can ‘form-fit’ a FEMA standard storm shelter in almost any location, as per your request. At Iron Tight LLC we pride ourselves on protecting you against nasty weather.
