Bomb Shelter Plans & Construction

A bomb shelter is a hardened bunker, often buried partly or fully underground. Modern concepts are designed to protect the inhabitants from nuclear blasts, chemical and even biological attacks.

The bomb shelter, in traditional terms, is a place where people retreat to, to protect themselves from bomb blasts. It differs from a fallout shelter, in that its main purpose is to protect from shock waves and over pressure, instead of from radioactive precipitation, as a fallout shelter does. It is also possible for a bomb shelter to protect from both blast and fallout and this type of design is increasingly popular in the modern climate.

These plans, studies and reports comprehesively cover the preparation, design and construction of effective and protective “backyard” nuclear fallout and bomb shelters.

All of these handbooks are aimed at the “home” reader.
