The Granger ISS continues to be the leading Storm Shelter and Tornado Shelter safety solution offered on planet earth! Many less capable manufacturers produce underground tornado shelters from less capable materials, namely fiberglass, carbon steel and concrete. After building a larger storm shelter for over 15 years, Granger Plastics Company began research and development of its newly designed unit, which was engineered with the typical American, single family home in mind. The industry leading, double 1/2" thick wall unit comes standard with the highly recognized, customizable Granger ISS Triple Layer Composite Door. The Granger ISS is the only underground storm shelter that comes complete with a lifetime warranty that includes a free lifetime door replacement warranty! While many less capable manufacturers may offer slight financial savings for an inferior product, many of their units do not offer life time door replacement warrantys, nor do many of their units even offer the capabilities of replacing the door when damaged from Tornado or Storm debris! When these units that do not have the capability of replacing the doors sees a direct impact from flying Tornado or Storm debris, the unit is typically deemed useless after this, due to the doors integrity being comprismed.

As the rash of storms and inclement weather continues, Granger Plastics Company continued to see tremendous spikes in Storm Shelter sales. See the Granger ISS featured on Fox 19's national news program!

The Granger ISS is another shining example of Granger Plastics Company's commitment to high quality product innovations and conversions. While many less durable and less capable underground storm shelters are made from inferior materials such as carbon steel, fiberglass or concrete, the Granger ISS is manufactured from extremely durable and long lasting Polyethylene, or Plastic. Thick, durable, food grade Polyethylene, or plastic offers extremely good chemical resistance in comparison to less durable materials such as Fiberglass, that tend to decompose when buried in damp, moist and dark conditions. Another leading factor in many families purchasing of a plastic tornado shelter is that common lawn chemicals and fertilizers will actually aide in decomposing many materials such as steel. Commonly used weed repellents, fungicides and herbicides all significantly deteriorate materials such as FRP or Fiberglass. This deterioration eventually leads to cracking, rotting, molding and mildewing of Fiberglass or FRP materials. A large portion of Granger's Tornado and Storm Shelter business is replacing these dilapidated shelters. Sometimes, these units are as new as just a few months old and some reach to be 5 to 7 years of age. Many of them have began rotting, cracking and leaking. Recently, a number of Federal Government regulatory agencies recently determined that "Fiberglass fibers cause DNA damage, which leads to chronic illness and is carcinogenic." Even the New York Times has reported on this atrocity, as far back as 1987 showing "Evidence Grows on Possible Link of Fiberglass and Lung Illnesses". These are all additional examples as to why the Granger ISS continues to be the leading Underground Tornado Shelter in America!

    Another distinctive advantage the Granger Plastics laundry & recycling carts have is their foam filled plastic base construction.

    Bulk Storage Containers

In effort to comply with a lot of these intiatives and programs, companies have replaced their gaylord boxes with plastic bulk storage containers, such as Granger Plastics Companys GP-1004.
