Ventilation Pipes

Ventilation pipes are fire, explosion, and malicious people resistant steel pipes that allow your NBC air filtration system to bring air into your shelter, filter it, and exhaust it back outside

Safe room ventilation pipes

American Safe Room manufactures these heavy duty steel ventilation pipes

Unique and easy bolt-on installation with engineered concrete wedge anchors and a thick rubber gasket

They feature an armored rain hood that has an removable insect screen and a high security fastener to hold it in place

These are four inch diameter welded steel pipes that are finished with a coat of durable primer.

They feature continuous weld construction including a mounting plate that mounts to the outside of your shelter with the included concrete wedge anchors.

The top of these pipes feature a heavy duty removable steel rain hood that houses a removable (and cleanable) insect screen.

We changed to this design after building vent pipes with 180 degree tops because they appear to be “stanchions” not “battleship air scoops” in order to minimize the possibility of someone spotting the location of your underground shelter. A steel post may get a second glance, but a large steel candy cane in the back yard warrants a closer inspection.

What’s Included

These ventilation ducts are built to order. They are a special order item. Please see pages 9 and 10 of the manual for ordering details. Once we have the required information from you, we will send you an itemized quotation showing everything included. We normally supply the complete pipes, concrete wedge anchors, gaskets, rain hoods, insect screens, security fasteners, and a wrench with each set (intake and outflow pipes).
