The Hide-Away® storm shelter/safe room gives you an economical way to protect yourself and your family from both dangerous storms and armed intruders.
The corner Hide-Away® storm shelter/safe room fits in the corner with a left or right swing door to save on space. Unlike below-ground units, this above-ground unit does not present a drowning hazard in the event of heavy rains. It anchors to a concrete slab with heavy-duty grade anchors capable of withstanding 45,000 lbs of lifting force - the strongest possible from a tornado. It is made of quarter inch thick, high grade steel, with structural supports capable of protecting the inhabitants from falling, or flying, heavy debris such as trees, roofs, bricks, block and more.
The door features three bolt-action locks that can be opened from inside, or outside. Each bolt is one inch diameter for the utmost in security. The massive hinges are designed to withstand extremely heavy pressure without bending and locking up. The door itself weighs 300lbs for the ultimate in safety, but swings open and closed with great ease. The corner Hide-Away® ships on a skid, unassembled, to save on freight.
The Hide-Away shelter is also rated for NIJ Level IIIA ballistic protection* against all handgun and shotgun rounds, with optional NIJ Level III military grade ballistic protection.
Important: This unit is sold for self-installation only. Shipment includes very heavy steel plates, the heaviest weighing 452 lbs. Customer should ensure that they have the appropriate manpower to transport and move the plates as required.
* Hide-Away shelters/safe rooms provide two levels of protection from armed intruders. Hide-away shelters come standard with NIJ Level IIIA protection against hand guns and shotguns, which make up 90% of violent crimes, according to a Bureau of Justice Statistics Special Report. If you want protection from high caliber and armor piercing rounds, you can order the Ballistic Option, which uses military grade steel that is used in combat vehicles to provide NIJ Level III protection up to 7.62 NATO rounds (.308 caliber).

Everything went well in ordering and receiving the 4X4 corner unit. With the help of about 4 extra guys, we got it together. I did modify the 3 locking pins. I turned them down about an 1/8 inch in diameter on the ends that lock. That makes it easier for my wife to lock them, and that is important.
