You’ll find that the cost of a Stormbox community shelter is quite agreeable and fits within the budgets of many schools systems across Tornado Alley.

However, our team will gladly provide you and your school with a custom quote free of charge. All you have to do is reach out to Stormbox at (979) 398-9090 or visit our estimate page.


Other community storm shelters or tornado safe rooms can take months and sometimes years to properly install — and at significant cost. Our community storm shelters at Stormbox don’t take months, but rather a manner of days to set up. Each scenario will differ, but in most cases, we find that we can have your shelter up in two weeks or less. You can order your community storm shelter for your school just before tornado season starts and provide quality, reliable protection faster than ever.

It’s also worth mentioning that once your tornado safe room is already set in place, it is generally a quick process to get everyone loaded in and accounted for. Tornados can form quickly and taking immediate action is crucial. When it doesn’t take you long to load into your community storm shelters, you are shaving off crucial time that could make all the difference.
