Underground Steel Shelters
Utah Shelter Systems specializes in manufacturing underground steel shelters because they offer very cost effective protection from the effects of nuclear weapons, as well as biological and chemical weapons (NBC). That ordinary citizens can be so effectively protected to within 1/2 mile of a large yield nuclear explosion for about the cost of a new pickup truck is remarkable. The concept is simple. A steel cylinder of a usable size is outfitted with bulkheads, a deck, electrical system, ventilation system, and properly designed entrances, and buried to a suitable depth to ensure proper earth arching and shielding. If the wall thickness of the cylinder is thick enough, and the backfill is performed to industry specifications, such a structure will endure a nuclear shock that would destroy all above ground buildings within a 5-mile radius of the blast.
