It’s impossible for you to know when a catastrophic event will occur. However, the best way to protect yourself and your family is by being prepared for such a scenario. By deciding to build a blast resistant shelter, you can work to ensure your family remains safe if the unthinkable occurs.
In addition to having formidable blast proof doors, great bomb shelters also have blast hatches that guarantee individuals will be able to exit the structure if the door is damaged and cannot be opened. Blast hatches can also be configured to open outward or inward, depending on your preferences.
