The Guardian

Survivor Shelters installs Guardian Concrete Storm Shelters in Claremore and surrounding areas!


Do tall genes run in your family? If you or your loved ones are over 5' 9" tall, they will love the Guardian concrete storm shelter and its 6' 2" interior height. This shelter, as with all Survivor Shelter models, is designed to meet or exceed FEMA standards.


The walls and floors are four inches thick, reinforced, and waterproof concrete. The coated doors and frames lock in three areas for safety against storms while being easy to open with gas-assisted actuators. There's no need to be concerned about ventilation within our shelters. The Guardian concrete shelter is equipped with multi-vent ventilation which keeps the shelter well-ventilated and assists with keeping the interior from feeling damp and musty smelling.

However, there may be slight differences in the aesthetics i.e. look of the door, air vents, door shocks, etc.

Survivor Shelters FAQ

What size shelter do I need?

FEMA recommends three square feet of floor space for each person in a tornado shelter.


How long does it take to get a shelter?

Lead times vary depending on the season. Normal lead time is three to four weeks from the time of your order until your shelter is installed. During the spring and fall, tornado season lead time may increase to six to eight weeks. Expedited orders are available for additional costs.

What is the difference between a Guardian and Lifesaver?

The Lifesaver is our most accessible in-ground shelter model, with only a few poured concrete steps to get inside. These steps are less steep than the typical metal steps included with storm shelters. 

The Guardian has metal steps similar to a step ladder. This allows the shelter to be a bit deeper than the Lifesaver, giving you 6’2” of height rather than the Lifesaver’s 5’9”. The metal steps also have room behind them that many enjoy having available for storing chairs or other emergency supplies.
