For the best tornado shelter and portable storm shelter solution, choose Red Dog Shelters. We are your source for above ground storm shelters and oil transfer camp storm shelters.


Aerodynamic Anchoring™ Tech Keeps You Grounded During Tornadoes:

  • Step ​1: Extreme winds pass over the curved roof of each Red Dog shelter, creating a concentrated area of low pressure at the bottom.
  • ​Step 2: That low pressure is transferred back up through two vacuum tubes, anchoring the Red Dog to the ground like a suction cup.
  • ​Step 3: The harder the wind blows, the more securely the Red Dog sticks to the ground.

When you need a reliable above ground tornado shelter, our Red Dog Shelters provide superior anchoring and strength to keep you and your crew safe in a storm shelter above ground.
