Why Is Steel Better Than The Rest? | Rising S Company

Concrete and Steel has been used for 150+ years to build Freeways, Cities, Skyscrapers and other permanent infrastructure. While Steel and Concrete is not a new technology, it is the proven one. Couple the proven strength of steel and concrete with 21st century technologies and you have a recipe for a super tornado shelter.

Steel acclimates to the temperature of the ground by expanding and contracting slightly. The flexible nature of steel makes it the perfect material to build underground structures with. Our all steel storm shelters are coated with an industrial strength rubberized coating that stops corrosion, so there is no worrying about typical issues like corrosion, cracks, mold, moisture or collapses due to exposure to the weather and earth. Our all steel shelters are built to las and we guarantee you shelter will last for generations. These shelters sit below the earth’s surface and are the SAFEST option in a tornado or extreme weather.

Steel Shelters Can Be Easily Upgraded

Our shelters are easily modified to suit the needs of anyone.  The handicapped and elderly no longer need to worry about finding accessible safety in the face of the storm. Since the hope is to only need to use the storm shelter in rare occasions; our standard storm shelters are pretty basic.  Including low voltage LED lighting, ventilation for fresh air and bench seating to make the shelter a very comfortable place to ride out a storm. However he sky is the limit because we build every inch!  Custom steel community shelters are completely upgraded to have a centralized electronic locking systems (for scenarios where there are multiple shelters located apart from one another), handicap accessibility, restrooms and more.  We’ve listed some of the features we commonly upgrade below but if there is something specific that you’d like and you don’t see it listed; don’t hesitate to ask.  We pride ourselves on making the best shelters in the world and we have yet to encounter a request that we couldn’t accomplish.

The units pictured below are common storm shelters available in every size (ranging from 4×8 to 10×50). Our standard residential tornado shelter includes staircases, bench seating and ventilation. As you can see from the photos below, with our steel shelters, there is also no unsightly 3 foot hill in your yard!

Proven Quality

Why Others Are Just A Bad Idea!

Don't buy a shelter from a wishy washy manufacturer

For years competitors have slammed the rectangular design of our shelters while stating that they were not sufficient for bomb shelters. That manufacturer is now building rectangular design. Buy from Rising S Company, an obvious leader in the industry where the competition is obviously just a follower.

Ours vs Theirs

They claim that they provide an airtight environment.

We can also provide an airtight environment but our airtight environment comes with an Oxygen Scrubber System and a way to replenish the Oxygen otherwise you will die quickly. This is a costly process so using an an NBC Air Filtration System and creating an over-pressure environment is not only more economical it is the process used in medical laboratories throughout the world.

They claim a mud room is needed.

Our claim is that a mud room is only needed if you plan to go in and out of your bunker once the air outside has become contaminated. While this “standard" option may make you feel better you are actually giving up precious floorspace for something you will more than likely not need. However if you feel the need for this then Rising S can accommodate that request.

Their claim is that a plastic housing is not good enough for an NBC System while using a system that must be returned to the manufacturer in Israel to be serviced. The hand crank is needed because this particular system runs off of traditional electricity which will not be stable even while using a generator.

NASA seems to disagree ( https://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2005/25aug_plasticspaceships ) Our system is also very simple and can be serviced without any added risk by yourself as the end user. We utilize a tested fan that runs on DC power off of the main battery bank. A manual crank is still an option even though our fans have extensive testing without failure in over 10,000 hours of continuous use.

They claim that an "L" angle is needed to stop gamma radiation.

NASA again disagrees. Anything 30* or steeper will allow gamma rays ( the most dangerous of all radiation) to have a clear pathway to the target (bottom of your stairs). Our staircase is 39* which is obviously beyond that point.

They claim that a C Channel exterior is sufficient

We have an engineered design and the C channel alone is not sufficient. There are many things wrong with C Channel alone such as wall beam deflection. The competition has obviously failed to have the product designed by an engineer.

They claim "Under Floor Storage"

We claim that “Under Floor Storage" is just another way in saying “hard to get to storage. It also shows that the interior of the competitions shelter is built from wood materials that are prone to rot, hold bacterial spores and is very prone to fire. Wood is a VERY CHEAP and INEXPENSIVE way to build the interior of a shelter. It will not last.

They claim 3 Bullet Proof Doors in their shelters.

We claim to only need one of our Bullet Proof Doors to stop bullets.

They claim "gas tight doors"

We say there is no such thing as gas tight or bullet proof in a shelter built with a wooden interior.
