protection against atomic radiation

When it feels like the world is becoming increasingly unstable and dangerous, a place to escape the dangers of nuclear, chemical, or biological warfare begins to make sense. So in 2022 people are turning more and more to manufacturers fallout shelter to protect against atomic radiation.

Although an underground shelter may seem like the best solution, there are a few things to consider before planning its installation.

How to choose your type of shelter?

First of all, it is important that your "bunker is appropriate to deal with a possible situation in which there would be atomic radiation. To do this, we offer two different solutions which are:

  1. a redevelopment of an existing area in your home (ideally in the basement);
  2. or installing a kit fallout shelter below ground level

The choice between these two variants will depend on the configuration of your home and the nature of your soil. In some cases, it is also possible to design an anti-atomic space at ground level. However, this configuration will have a higher construction cost.

Before making your choice, take advantage of the services of our engineers who will be able to advise you best according to your budget and the configuration of the premises.

What budget to protect against atomic radiation

If you are open to DIY, the cheapest underground shelters cost around CHF 15,000.- with the maritime container solution. But that will leave you with a bare-bones setup that will then require you to do your own digging and installing. Moreover, the container solution will probably not include a sufficient level of protection to prevent radiation from entering. Our teams have often found that a home-made solution ultimately costs more than a turnkey solution delivered and installed by a specialist.

A complete installation from CHF 80,000.- is possible!

A standard underground shelter equipped with a kitchen, a bathroom, several beds and NBC protection (nuclear, biological and chemical) costs on average between CHF 80'000.- (11m2) and CHF 130' 000.-(40m2). Prices therefore vary according to the size and nature of the premises. Additionally, amenities such as a vault, overhead layout, or multiple emergency escape hatches, can also drive up the price of your bunker.

For luxury fallout shelters, there is no price limit. These shelters can be built like luxury houses underground, with swimming pool and play areas!

The key points of good protection in the event of a nuclear, biological or chemical attack

The first certain thing is that the best place to protect yourself will be underground! Then, the various points explained below will increase your level of protection.

The best materials to protect against atomic radiation:

No big surprises, iron, steel and concrete are the best materials to protect you from radiation. To obtain maximum protection, when building your fallout shelter, we combine the following materials:

  • steel for the manufacture of the main carcass;
  • a concrete slab above for radiation protection and below for stability;
  • repairing the excavation with a layer of very dense sand and then earth;

When the shelter is manufactured in an existing dwelling, the carcass will not necessarily be made using steel. In this case, the thickness of reinforced concrete will be greater.

Suitable air filtration equipment:

The only viable solution to properly filter the air is an NRBC (nuclear, radiological, biological and chemical) filter. This is equipment specially developed for use in fallout shelters. The latter uses a sophisticated filtration system (HEPA) and a manual operating system when there is no more electricity.

Protect yourself from atomic radiation individually:

In addition to the protection zone, it will also be important to have a minimum of equipment for the occupants of the shelter. The essentials are: a decontamination zone in the shelter (isolated shower), anti-particle suits (PVC), different types of protective mask (particles, chemical and/or biological).

Our conclusion to protect against atomic radiation

As you will have understood, below ground level in a suitably constructed bunker, you will be protected from atomic radiation. However, as we have seen, it is also important to provide ancillary equipment so that you can then exit and move freely from your fallout shelter. This might even allow you to live several months in your bunker.

By requesting the services of, you benefit from comprehensive advice for your protection and that of your loved ones. Moreover, before embarking on the installation of a bunker, it is always recommended to draw up a situation report. The best method is to risk management. Our experts therefore plan with you a global approach to your situation. Then, they advise you for free before offering you a solution.

Social risks

The terrorist threat has been present for many years and requires all populations to be vigilant. We live in a world of war between religions, ideas and patriotism. Indeed, there is enough to anger some people to the point of causing damage without worrying about the presence of innocent people. Therefore, a shelter is a way to escape discreetly to a safe haven.

Moreover, social uprisings are more and more numerous in the world. Social revolt made itself felt and it was not uncommon for the term “civil war” to be used during television news. Consequently, the risks of using a fallout shelter in the event of a social uprising will be a major risk in the years to come and must be taken into consideration.

So if the world degenerates, you have enough to survive the shock!

Electromagnetic risk

We hear more and more the term electromagnetic bomb. An electromagnetic pulse (EMP) bomb is nothing but a nuclear attack. It is a type of nuclear bomb that is detonated much higher in the atmosphere with the aim of destroying a country's electronic networks.

In the event of a prolonged general outage of the electrical systems, the situation could quickly become explosive within the population.

More generally, electrosensitivity has been an emerging disease for several years. Indeed, the majority of the population is exposed to electromagnetic waves almost permanently.

To counter this, it is also possible to take refuge in its fallout shelter. Thus, get out of the magnetic field and wait until the electrical networks can be restored.

Climate risks

In terms of ecology, we face a degradation of the ecosystem soaring. Indeed, the risks incurred are serious for the survival of the human species, but many still seem to ignore the problem.

First of all, global warming is felt at high speed, when in certain regions where it is usually cold in December, temperatures have reached 22°. Then, the disappearance of certain species of all kinds gives way to a fall in biodiversity, which is critical. By 2050, nearly 40 % of this biodiversity should disappear. 

Storms, floods, tornadoes and earthquakes are becoming more frequent. To protect against the deadliest weather, installing a shelter ensures the safety of your entire family in the event of immediate danger.

Chemical risks

In the event of a chemical disaster, our NBC civil protection shelters present themselves as a massive weapon of protection for all occupants. Explosion of chemical agents or fires, a chemical accident can occur at any time.

Indeed, the many companies are high-risk industrial sites. These so-called “polluting” companies participate in the production of chemicals and significant hazardous waste.

If an accident occurs, the entire perimeter takes the risk of inhaling chemicals present in the air. These permanent exposures give rise to the risk of serious illnesses which can cause various incurable abnormalities, especially in children. Our NBC shelter systems are designed and built to protect you for the long term. 


risks of using a fallout shelter

The diseases that appear in humans come mainly from biological agents. Present in the environment, it is therefore difficult to avoid these risks, if the atmospheric air that we breathe is polluted.

To prevent various serious illnesses or military chemical agents, provide yourself with a shelter capable of protecting you against the risks of contamination.

Indeed, NBC filtration systems offer you complete protection against biological agents present in the air. Different levels of filtration can be modulated according to the geographical location of the confidential location of your fallout shelter. 

Nuclear risk

Can we foresee a near end of the world? Or a nuclear war? Of course not, however, current global conditions are not there to reassure us.

What is in our power is to offer you a bunker that can protect you against the risk of nuclear explosions. Can we survive a nuclear explosion? Clearly, if you don't have NBC protection, you have very little chance of survival. The electricity network would be cut off and the Internet would also no longer work. A nuclear attack would therefore have very significant repercussions.

The situation in Ukraine necessarily speaks to us. Indeed, the cities of Chernobyl and Zaporijia are taken by storm by Russia. The current news is enough to make all the countries of Europe tremble in the face of nuclear risks.
