Bunker building in WA??

Post by Teddybearhugz » Sun Feb 03, 2019 6:56 pm

Hi,
I want to build a bunker in WA and I would like help to find out if they're custom built, land for one and all the relevant info such as "don't buy from them" and "easy to deal with people and discrete sales"
Thanks heaps


When left is right and right is left... Which way is up?!?! Never ever never, give up!!!

Do you have land already to put it on ?

How far away do you live from any army/ Air Force bases ?

The reason I ask is that if you think a nuke could be dropped within 20 km from you then you need a bunker rated to protect you from the pressure and reactive waves from a blast nearby which would turn your internal organs into jelly.

Nukes could be anywhere from 5 megaton to 50 megaton however typically modern nukes have got smaller due to more accurate guidance and a desire for faster delivery.

If you’re far enough away then you need only to protect your air supply from radioactive fallout , have a supply of clean food and water , and have your shelter covered with at least a metre of soil or 60 cm of concrete to block neutron and gamma radiation.

I can design and manufacture one to suit your location but how much do you have to spend and for how many people ?

Depends on what you want to use it for. Whether it be for storage or for safety. And on what soil it will be in. Clay is stronger and water will travel through it as easily as sand but it also contains more minerals that will speed up rusting.

Sea containers can be used but they have there flaws, they done keep out water as well, prone to rusting and structurally not strong to be buried very deep.

Atlas bunkers in the US build with corrugated galvanised pipe. They handle rust and are more waterproof and the cylinder shape spreads the weight load evenly and can have up to 10 feet of sand on top of it. In Australia they are used as culverts and drainage.

I have a plan that I’m working on for later down the track when I have a property that incorporates sea containers and joining them together

A fund would be a good idea as long as it does not cost a lot on your property taxes. You have to also remember that if a fund is set up there will be staff to pay to administer that fund.
