"Atlas Bomb Shelter" was started in Sacramento, CA in the 1950's during the Cold War era. To be politically correct in the world that we live in now the name was modernized to "Atlas Survival Shelters" in 2011 because a nuclear bomb is not the only threat we now face in this world. The company now produces it's shelters in California and Texas. jjjjjjjjjjjShown below is the 1961 pamphlet that was handed out to home owners during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Notice the letter of Certification from the Department of Defense dated August 14, 1961.
Warning: Be careful of a scam selling you space in Doomsday Bunkers that don't exist! "V"
Notice: There are over 100,000 round corrugated pipe shelters in America and not one reported catastrophic failure! Our competition is trying to misled people into thinking corrugated pipe is going to collapse on them yet the government uses the exact same pipe in it's missile silos as shown in the 3 pictures below. Atlas Survival Shelters builds every type of shelter available, from round corrugated pipe to smooth high pressure propane tanks, from fabricated square shelters to concrete monolythic domes to preformed concrete homes.The strongest shelter is a concrete monolythic dome and will take a near direct nuclear blast. The most practical and affordable is the corrugated pipe. The highest bar rated shelter is a high pressure propane tank 11' diameter by 47' long with 11/16" thick walls. Two of our shelter designs are used in our nuclear missile silos and have been since the 50's. Beware of unscrupulous companies making metal square shelters and claiming them to be bomb shelters when they are nothing more than a tornado shelter at best and burried only 1-3 feet deep and do not have a quality NBC air filtration system or have a home-built air system with no manual overide crank. "Remember", a shelter must be burried at minimum of 6' under the surface to achieve a root cellar effect which will keep the interior temperature between 56 and 58 degrees. All Atlas Survival Shelters are burried a minimum of 10' below the surface. Please study the engineering facts before believing these people building square metal box shelters. They will not do the job you think and do not have a long life expectancy. Common sense and facts prove a round or dome shelter is several times stronger than any metal box or shipping container. Note: Our dome shelters do not have metal rebar in the concrete, they have Basalt Rebar so they will be invisible to metal detectors in drones.

Atlas Survival Shelters are made of 10' or 12' diameter galvanized corrugated pipe, which is up to 11 times stronger than square box shelters "Have you ever seen a square submarine?". Our pipe shelters can be burried up to 42' deep and have an estimated lifespan of 200 years. There is not a better made pre-manufactured shelter on the market today than our corrugated pipe shelters which are typically burried 10' underground where as a metal boxed shelter typically only has 2-3' of earth cover. Keep in mind, the deeper the shelter is burried, the cooler it will stay in the summer months!. Our blast proof pipe shelter is rated at 8 bars where as a square metal box shelter is typically rated at 2 bars or 30 psi. Square shelters make a fine temporary tornado shelter or fallout shelter only for a short term. Our pipe shelters give you the option to live in them indefinitely because the deep depth in which they are burried allows you to control the climate. Our shelters are built with the same care and quality materials as any new home!.
