Heavy steel, welded inside and out- but that’s just the beginning,
a lot of design features get built into every one of the storm shelters made at Manus Welding and Fabrication Shop in
Walnut Ridge, Arkansas.
First of all they are roomy. 6 foot tall and plenty of leg room between the benches.
Even the steps fold flat against the end to optimize space inside, because even though a majority of storms are over fairly quickly, you just never know when a building or huge tree might get dropped on top of you while you’re inside or when you may have several funnels in one storm…
like it or not if you get to stay in a shelter for an extended period it better not be cramped quarters…
or heaven forbid not up to the task of keeping any aftermath on the OUTSIDE.
At Manus Welding you can count on professional fabrication with tough inspections for every step along the manufacturing process. No detail is ever overlooked, and this does not stop after the construction either. Quality finish and extreme care on the install means they will look every bit as good as they will perform at your place, years from now too.
Here’s a good view of the heavy steps (that fold flat, out of the way,
when you’re inside) no wimpy ladders in here, nice wide treads welded
together for strength!
Take a look at the bearings mounted on axles along the top too!
that heavy steel lid glides smoothly to open and close.
