Why Purchase A Storm Shelter Bed?

Virtually Indestructible

Fabricated from 1/4 steel, the Vortex Vaults Storm Shelter Beds are strong enough to literally stop a bullet. Our shelter beds have been tested and certified by the Texas Tech Wind Institute and are fully built to FEMA guidelines to protect you and your loved ones from an EF-5 tornado and whatever the tornado brings with it (EF-5 200-318 mph). This robust shelter can withstand the weight of a loaded cement truck being dropped directly on top of it! It is fully locked from the inside upon entrance making it a safe room from home invaders. Being made from ¼” American made steel, the Vortex Vault is bullet proof to all shotgun and almost all handgun calibers.

Easily Accessible

When a severe storm is brewing, the last thing you want to do is go outside in the weather to access your storm shelter. That's why Unique Shelter Solutions offers easily accessible indoor storm shelters. When it comes to shelter, nothing says accessibility like a shelter located directly under your bed.

Simple Deployment

Motorized and remote control operated, your convertible storm shelter can be erected in 60 seconds. Your storm shelter bed's backup battery will keep your shelter running in the case of a power outage.

Wheelchair Accessible

If you need an indoor wheelchair accessible storm shelter, call and ask about our three-tiered shelter. It's spacious and provides easy access for wheelchair users, allowing them to move around inside effortlessly.

HOA Approved
