I now default to sectional shelters when describing these. Stanton for shelters has become the equivalent of Hoover for vacuum cleaners.
Stanton themselves made more than one profile of section and even shelters that were tubular (for commercial and civilian applications mainly).

The larger shelters on Stanton's own site would not have been identified as Stantons at all as they are atypical half tubes on a cut and cover square lower section.

I've seen at least four profiles of sectional shelters and unfortunately none have had any distinguishing manufacturers marks so you may struggle to get a definitive answer

Sure, we have many brochures, pamphlets and books on shelters and ARP in the archives, but I cannot find this one. There are many that are similar but never exact. We also have a blueprint of the arched Stanton from that company.

Crendon Concrete produced reinforced shelters that kick started their precast farm buildings structures which became very popular during the late 1940's up to the 1960's. ( I believe they went out of business around 1990. )

I heard the early constructions referred too as ' concretecrux ' ?
