Built strong to protect your family
Our storm shelters are designed, manufactured, and installed with your protection in mind.
The following questions and answers from Jon Jouvenaux, co-owner of BBB Septic, Storm Shelters, and Portable Toilets.
Why do I need a storm shelter or safe room?
Simply put, to keep your family safe. In Northwest Arkansas, we frequently have strong storms move through our area with an increasing number of those storms producing tornadoes.
According to the National Weather Service, the entire state usually has 33 tornado touchdowns every year, but that average is changing as recent years have produced more tornadoes. A properly installed, well-manufactured storm shelter in your home or on your property is much more likely to protect you and your family compared to hiding in a closet in your home.
Why should I choose BBB to install my storm shelter?
Our team is highly skilled and has years of experience installing a variety of storm shelter styles. We take the extra steps needed to ensure your storm shelter is installed correctly and that it will be a safe place for your family to weather any storm.
What’s more is, we have earned the respect from our customers. We care about each project as if it was our own family we were protecting.
Who builds your storm shelters?
Our storm shelters are manufactured by Hausner, which has been building quality products since 1954. All Hausner’s storm shelters meet FEMA 320, 361 and ICC 500 protocol. They have also been tested at Texas Tech’s Wind Science & Engineering Research Center and we are a member of the American Tornado Shelter Association and the Better Business Bureau.
What are the storm shelters made out of?
Our storm shelters are precast concrete and are reinforced with fiber mesh as well as steel re-bar and they are poured with a minimum of 6,000 psi concrete (a normal driveway has 3000-4000 psi concrete).
Our saferooms are made of high-grade steel.
Can I choose the color and style of my storm shelter?
Yes, all our shelters can be customized with patterns and colors to fit your style and even to blend in well with your home.
