The Survival Center's Budget Underground Shelter is made available for the person who wants to build their own shelter and save money doing it.

This is not for everyone! You will need some skills to do this and to be able to handle a heavy steel tank, be able to unload it and move it around while you work on it, to install it once completed etc.

Stealth is the KEY here! Before, During and After Installation.

 

Why heavy duty round steel? It works the best.

Round Will Handle the Stress of being Underground better than Square.

Over 100 years in use and millions of installations.

Fiberglass will crack and leak. We know, we have seen it!

Concrete is great. How many people do you want to know where your underground shelter is?
Keep in mind nosy neighbors, chatty concrete truck drivers, and yaky suppliers.

The Survival Center Shelters are designed and installed with the least amount of exposure in mind.

Keep secret from nosy neighbors. ( yes, this is a BIG problem you should be aware of )

The Survival Center's Regular Single Underground Shelter (not the Budget Underground Shelter) is designed for long term family survival and will handle a family of 3/5 long term or more people for a shorter time period.

More deluxe units are available.

Several units can be clustered together (see drawing) for additional people, comfort and storage.

How many do you need to protect? Additional units can be clustered together to meet your requirements.

Underground Shelters can arrive fully stocked with all the food and emergency supplies one would need.

The Survival Center is your one stop shop for all your emergency and long term preparedness supplies.

Remember, most Engineers and Architects are "NOT" Survival Experts.

So, the Ground Hog ( and Ants ) are protected by going Under Ground. How about You ?

Underground Shelter Installation Site

General consensus today is that if one was to put themself in the best situation to be able to survive the POTENTIAL Planet X effects, climate changes, earth changes, earthquakes, asteroids, comets, war and the effects that may be coming our way, and stand up to the potential high surface winds, high water, and nuclear explosions ( nuclear type winter, etc.) (from whatever source, be it man made or from crashing asteroids) then one would be wise to observe nature, like the Ground Hog ( ants included ) and Get Under Ground!

A properly designed, build and installed under ground shelter may give you the edge you need to survive. This page is presented as a brief synopsis of what we have learned over the past almost 40 years of building and installing various under ground shelters. Keep in mind, It is better to be one year too early that one day to late!

    True NBC filtration ventilation system

    A shelter is only as good as its air filtration system. This Air Filter System is a Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical (NBC) air filter that will enable you to create either a positive pressure safe room, fallout shelter, bomb shelter or a negative pressure isolation room. It will operate on regular 110v line power or will automatically switch to battery backup. An optional ( shown ) hand powered manual bellows can be ordered for use in a long term electrical outage. It will handle up to 12 Adults. Output is 100 cubic meters per hour.

    This Air Filter System can be mounted in a residential safe room with both backup systems in place: a user supplied battery for short term power outages & the optional hand operated bellows for longer power outages - note the 36 inch yardstick to the right for size reference. The air is drawn through the flex hose, into the bottom end bell, then through the filter bank in the middle and out the top end bell to overpressure the shelter or safe room.

    How does it work?The filtration unit draws in unfiltered air from outside your shelter or safe room through an intake vent that can be located in a wall, window, or door. The air passes through a bank of up to 6 filters certified for the collection of nuclear, biological, and chemical (NBC or CBRN) toxins or natural contaminants and allergens such as dust or pollen at 99.97% efficient down to 0.3 microns. The NBC filtration system is comprised of five separate filter media's: (1) a gross filter, (2) a pre-filter, (3) a HEPA particulate filter, (4) a gas adsorption cell, and (5) a final carbon fines filter. Filters are easily changed. Spares are available.

    Then, the safe, breathable air is blown into your protected space with just the right force to produce a slight overpressure in the room. This overpressure keeps toxins from migrating into your safe room or shelter from any other entry source. This is the same technology used by the US military to keep soldiers alive in a CBRN environment.

    The Air Filter System can set on the floor or mounted vertically on a wall. You can order many optional accessories such as a hand-operated bellows backup, a blast valve, and a warfare gas absorber which is filled with military grade activated carbon that adsorbs gases. What really sets this air filtration unit apart from other NBC air filtration systems are the redundant backup systems.

    6. Optional digital pressure monitor
    7. Optional overpressure valve - ceiling mount also available
    8. 10/220 Volt AC outlet (standard wall plug) for the air filter
    9. User supplied 12-volt deep cycle (marine) battery - standard automotive batteries will work as well

    Emergency Hand Pump This hand operated bellows slip-fits instantly into the top of the air filter and is operated by pumping it up and down. It is used to draw filtered air

    airfilterhand-pumpII.jpg - 7168 Bytes

    into a protected space during a long term power outage.

    A typical shelter occupant cannot physically maintain an overpressure with this device (truth in advertising), but you can draw in air through the filter bank and into your shelter, displacing the carbon dioxide that is exhaled by the occupants ~and~ you still have safe, breathable air being filtered for NBC toxins.

    The constraint for maintaining an overpressure in any decent sized shelter (larger than a coat closet) is human endurance - there is simply too much air to move, either by a plunger system (which we have), or a rotary crank system, to maintain an overpressure for more than a few minutes. Either way, the oxygen that you consume and the carbon dioxide that you exhale while you bring in filtered air by hand power is beyond what humans can accomplish.

    Our emergency backup bellows has an output of 50 cubic meters (1766 cubic feet) per hour at 50 strokes per minute using a 7 inch stroke and an output of 100 cubic meters (3200 cubic feet) per hour at 50 strokes per minute using a 14 inch stroke.

    airfilteroverpressure-valve.jpg - 6878 Bytes

    Overpressure Relief Valve
    Ultra-low pressure purge valve

    This overpressure relief valve is critical to creating an overpressure in the protected space by adding the proper, metered resistance to the outgoing airflow. The valve is normally closed and will not open unless the air pressure inside the shelter is slightly greater than the outside air pressure.

    This gives you true ventilation - air in through the air filter and out through this valve preventing the buildup of carbon dioxide exhaled by the occupants. Carbon dioxide poisoning will incapacitate and kill the occupants of an enclosed space without ventilation long before oxygen deprivation.

    Please specify at time of ordering whether or not you are mounting this valve directly on the wall or ceiling - or if you are going mount it to the blast valve. We will configure your overpressure relief valve so it either has a mounting flange for the wall or ceiling or a slip-fit connection for the blast valve.

    A good rule of thumb is that if you are underground, you need blast valves and if you are above ground, you do not - unless you have a hardened structure above ground. There is not much need for blast valves unless you have a hardened, blast resistant structure.

    Any protected space will benefit from this valve, especially if it is well sealed, then this overpressure relief valve is a necessity - if you want true ventilation.

    Blast valve

    airfilterBlastValveII.jpg - 20859 Bytes

    This Blast Valve is designed and tested to withstand a 50 PSI blast.

    In order to withstand this incredible pressure, this item is fabricated from 3/8" (.375 inch) steel. It is a heavy, robust item designed to keep the massive pressures of a nearby conventional or nuclear blast from injuring or killing the occupants of your bomb shelter. The bolt pattern meets the Israeli standard for blast valves.

    This Automatic Double Acting Blast Valve automatically closes when the initial positive pressure wave from an explosion hits and automatically closes a second time (in the other direction) when the outside air pressure goes negative in relationship to the internal shelter pressure. When the outside air pressure returns to normal, the blast valve automatically returns to its normally open state. In other words, it lets air flow into your air filter or out of your exhaust port for normal operation, but will not allow a blast of high-pressure air to enter your shelter - and bring contaminants with it.

    These valves are only necessary in hardened bomb shelters and should be used in pairs - one on the air intake pipe and one on the air outflow pipe.

    Order # 42225 $495.00 + s&h.


    Replacement filters

    These replacement filters are of the highest quality. They are all easily replaced by using simple hand tools (two Crescent wrenches) and a suitable receptacle such as a plastic bag to place to old filter in. For more information about how to replace the filters, please see the Air Filter manual.

    All three of these filters come with the Air Filtration System:

    Pre-filters

    airfilter-replace1II.jpg - 6178 Bytes airfilterreplacement2II.jpg - 11853 Bytes

    The TWO pre-filters are designed to extend the life of the HEPA filter by trapping both large and small particles. The first filter is the roughing filter with an average efficiency of 25 to 30 percent when tested in accordance with ASHRAE 52.1. The roughing filter extends the life of the intermediate filter or pre-filter and reduces its change frequency. The second filter is the intermediate filter with an average efficiency of 80 to 85 percent when tested in accordance with ASHRAE 52.1.

    Order # 42229 Pre-filter #2 $335.00 + s&h

    The HEPA filter

    airfilter-replace3II.jpg - 9037 Bytes


    The nuclear grade HEPA filter is a special filter we have made just for our application.Each HEPA filter is individually tested to MIL-STD-282 before it leaves the factory, your assurance that it meets rated efficiency. The penetration and actual airflow rate are indicated on the label. Each filter is also assigned an individual serial number.

    Every HEPA filter is individually DOP tested: This has been the industry standard test method for many years. It is conducted using a forward light scattering photometer. The HEPA is challenged with 0.3 micrometer particles of dioctyl-phthalate (DOP). By measuring the upstream and downstream concentration of these particles, the HEPA filter cell efficiency can be calculated.

    Underwriters Laboratories Classification UL 586: This classification to insure that each HEPA filter cell is individually tested at the factory. Additionally, representative HEPA filter cells are tested by UL to ensure that they provide their rated HEPA level filtration, after being subjected to the following conditions of a high moisture environment of (90% R.H.), a high temperature environment of (371 deg/C), low temperature environment of (-3 deg/C). UL also subjects the HEPA filter cell to a spot flame test of (954 deg/C).

    Media: Water repellant glass micro fiber 99.97% True HEPA cell type (A)
    Cell Side Material: Fire retardant particle board
    Separators: Aluminum
    Bond: Polyurethane foam
    Gasket Material: Neoprene (RE43E1)
    Gasket Location: Both sides
