Double Wall Foam Filled Storm Shelter

The body of the ISS features double wall construction, with a ½ inch wall on the inside and a ½ inch wall on the outside. The two walls of the unit are filled with a non VOC foam adding extra strength, rigidity and condensation control.

This reverse taper allows for the unit to be installed directly in the ground without an additional anchoring system. No messy concrete or complicated installation is needed. In fact, it’s the easiest shelter on the market to install.
Easiest Storm Shelter Installation Available. – A typical installation of the Granger ISS Storm Shelter usually takes 4 hours or less.

The ISS can be installed outside an existing home or in new construction and even be retrofitted into certain areas. With no anchoring system requirements, the Granger ISS offers the easiest storm shelter installation in the industry!
Triple Panel, FEMA 320 and 361 exceeding Door
The door is the most important part of any underground storm shelter because that is what is between you and the tornado. A door should be tested for safety following the FEMA 320 or FEMA 361 guidelines that tests the durability of the door to withstand debris flying at wind speeds of 250 MPH. The door of the Granger ISS Storm Shelter is a unique design that includes a double wall polyethylene exterior panel, a double wall polyethylene interior panel and a sheet of polycarbonate bolted between for ultimate safety and near absolute protection from storms and tornadoes.
Dual Gas Assisted Shock System – Any door designed to protect you against a tornado is going to be heavy. Though lighter weight than other materials the polyethylene door of the Granger ISS is no exception. To ensure the easiest entry and exit possible, each Granger ISS comes with two gas assisted shocks to help open the door.
Industry leading FEMA & ICC 500 specification exceeding door

Many other colors available upon request including your favorite team colors!
Articulating Handrails – Each Granger ISS underground shelter has articulating handrails that can be used for safer and easier entry into the unit. When not in use the handrails fold neatly to the side and do not take up valuable interior room. They can easily be raised again and locked into place upon exiting the unit for added safety.
Easy, Three Step Entrance– With only three steps down to the seating of the unit, entry into the underground storm shelter takes only seconds. The vertical entry is easy for most people and does not impede on the interior space.
Molded In Seating – The Granger ISS exceeds FEMA standards for 6 adults though several more can fit in an emergency. Molded in circular seating allows occupants to sit comfortably with seating taking up as little space in the interior of the unit as possible. Even taller occupants will be able to sit straight with plenty of headroom, or stretch their legs by standing in the entry area.
