Why Fort Smith Storm Shelters?

When an E-5 tornado blows through town, it has speeds of 200 miles per hour ripping everything it can out of the ground. Even larger objects like semi-trucks and dumpsters can get found miles away from where they had gotten parked once the storm subsides.

Most people make the mistake of running for their tool shed or car’s garage. However, it doesn’t take long for these weak hiding places to give way to such powerful winds.

A storm shelter, on the other hand, provides a protected space under the ground where winds can’t reach you and your family. No matter what it may do above ground, you can rest easy knowing the ones you care for most stay safe.

When you need the lasting confidence that your loved ones will remain defended through any severe storm, you won’t find a better shelter than ours. Choose American Storm Shelters for better storm damage protection.

Freequently Asked Questions

Will you help us find the the right p[lace for our shelter?

Absolutely!  We want you to be 100% happy for years to come with your purchase.

Will I get struck by lightening inside these units?

No.  The units are grounded and since these are built to FEMA standards you won’t have to worry about your safety will taking shelter inside our units.

Why is steel better than concrete?

Steel units have a longer life span.  Concrete has a seam and tends to leak after the top is attached to the bottom.  The sealant in a concrete unit will dry rot, letting water seep in through the gap.  They are also very pourus causing a musty smell and they will crack when the earth shifts creating major problems.  

Does someone need to be present during installation?

Thats completely up to you.  After we’ve agreed on the appropriate location for your storm shelter, you’re welcom to leave and come back to sign the contract after you are 100% satisfied.  We don’t ask for money up front so you don’t pay until the job is complete and you are happy.

Why don't you sell in the garage floor units?

The only ventilation in those units in the slots in the sliding door that tends to get bent causing people to get stuck in these units.  If a pipe burst while you are in this unit you have no other ventilation source.  What goes up in a storm must come down and people have gotten trapped and died.  Our philosophy is that if it’s not safe for me, then it’s not safe for you!


“Great product with great service! I did a lot of research on storm shelters and local storm shelter companies and decided American Storm Shelters, Inc was the best place to get my family’s new shelter. I was very impressed with the condition of the shelters they have on site that have been in the ground for over 25 years. Safety was my main concern and I couldn’t find one single bad review for these shelters and that’s pretty darn good for being in business since 1970.” Julie Mills
