We Install And Sell 3 Types Of Tornado Shelters in Collinsville
Coal Tar Epoxy is a heavy duty, high build protective coating which has high durability, is resistant to most corrosive reagents, and is excellent at sealing out moisture. It’s commonly used in marine and industrial environments. It is largely applied to steel to protect it from rust and corrosion. It is often seen on steel vessel hulls, underground water and oil tanks and pipelines, offshore oil rigs, and dam gates. Our Coal Tar Epoxy underground tornado shelter is made of 10 gauge sheet metal. All welds are leak-tested to ensure they will not allow ground water to seep into the shelter. After the shelter is fabricated, we apply a thick coating of Coal Tar Epoxy to the exterior of the shelter. The Coal Tar Epoxy bonds to the steel and functions to protect the outside of the steel shelter from corrosion and rust. The interior of the storm shelter is painted with red oxide primer paint to protect the steel on the inside from rust and corrosion.

With a FIFTY year guarantee Hot Dip Galvanizing is the process of dipping fabricated steel into a kettle or vat containing molten zinc. While the steel is in the kettle, the iron in the steel metallurgically reacts with the molten zinc to form a tightly-bonded metal coating that offers superior corrosion protection to steel. Using zinc to protect steel from corrosion (hot-dip galvanizing) is a 150-year-old practice! Our Galvanized FlatSafe tornado shelter is made of 10 gauge sheet metal. All welds are leak-tested to ensure they won’t allow ground water to seep into the shelter.
