About Global Underground Shelters (G.U.S.)
Global Underground Shelters Inc. is located in central Michigan where mother nature has given us the opportunity to design and test personal shelters in all weather conditions. Since 1995 we have developed many styles and prototypes of shelters both above and below ground and came to one conclusion. No matter what shelter material is placed in the ground, one day in time it will return to the ground. Now, before we debate what materials out last others along with the best shape to withstand pressure, lets talk about the number #1 concern, MONEY. That's right, While the majority of company's are constantly building shelters with bigger and better ideas, they are also producing units only a selected few can afford.
Now lets get back to ground level or underground level. (No pun intended). At Global Underground Shelters we designed our shelters on one engineered item which is produced by the thousands and easy to obtain. That's right, the shipping container. Is it the preferred unit ? MAYBE NO, especially if you are one of the companies trying to sell the $90,000.00 cylindrical unit that can take a direct nuclear hit. Can it be modified to withstand a global catastrophe? YES. So how can we prove this?. At this time there is no shelter company that has had the opportunity for the ultimate test. So now it's a waiting game and we are all back to square one. All materials placed in the ground, one day in time will return to the ground.
So what are our credentials? Global Underground Shelters has developed and tested our design with the hammering Michigan weather conditions. We buried our first 240 sq. ft. shelter in May of 2000 which still remains in service after 14 years. In 2006 Global Underground Shelters introduced a new concept offering 1,3 and 5 day shelter courses. In 2008 we designed a 8 hour lock up course and introduced this new feature as TRY BEFORE YOU BUY. March of 2011 was a eye opener. A fresh new employee came to the morning staff meeting, sat down and watched as seasoned fabricators began a who's right, who's wrong debate. When asked his opinion, all he said was, WHAT WOULD G.U.S. DO ?. His dry humored remark has stuck with us since.
So why do we produce shelters? G.U.S. builds underground shelters for various reasons. Some clients want storage, some want storm protection, some want living and storage. We will design your unit or multiple units to fit your needs. Including bathroom facilities, galley kitchens, air scrubbers, battery backups, combined units, medical rooms, fresh water tanks, you name it we have probably done it. We also supply bare bone units in kit form for the individual who wants to reduce money spent or deliver luxury models fully stocked with food and supplies of your choosing or our recommendations.
If money is no object with your project, there are thousands of shelters on the market some of which exceed $150,000.00. If you fall in the 32 percent of real everyday survivalist/preppers, G.U.S. can furnish a shelter which exceeds your expectations.
G.U.S. builds a quality product that we trust will protect not only our own family but yours as well for many years.
