The principal feature of this basement fallout shelter is a roof composed of tilt-up storage units, the top of which is hinged to the wall. The units can be used as book cases, pantry shelves, or for miscellaneous storage.
In an emergency, the storage units can be tilted up so that they rest on a stacked masonry wall built from materials stored nearby the units. In basements where the outside ground level is above the top of the tilted-up units, adequate shelter from fallout radiation is provided by filling the units with brick or solid concrete block 8″ thick. The shelter will house 6 people.
Obviously, this basement fallout shelter design is more advancaed that the other shelter designs. You’d think that this will be a harder project. Check out this 5 page guide by the Federal Emergency Management Agency and with the help of the very detailed instructions and illustrations, you’ll find out that making a basement fallout shelter with a tilt-up storage unit is easy.
