What About When the Storm Shelter Isn’t in Use?

Our community storm shelters at Stormbox are not only made to be durable, but they are also made to last. While your Stormbox disaster shelter isn’t in use, you can rest assured that it will stay looking great day-in and day-out for years. This is because we make sure to use rust- and corrosion-resistant paint. The interior of the shelter uses Waterborne paint. Waterborne paint is known for its durability and resilience in a variety of temperatures and conditions. The exterior uses industrial-strength urethane paint. This type of paint is standard in the auto industry and is used because of its notable protection and longevity. These industry-leading paint products combined with thoughtful and calculated engineering make for a community storm shelter system that will last the test of time.

No Power? No Problem

Our community storm shelter units are connected to 20 AMP, 100 Volt electrical services that help light the exterior and interior lights. During storms — especially big ones like tornados and hurricanes — power can go down in large areas. That’s why we add an emergency backup battery just in case your power goes out during an emergency situation. This backup battery power will power your exterior and interior lights for approximately 90 minutes.
