We Install and Sell Three Types Of Storm Shelters in Edmond
• High-Density Polyethylene Storm Shelters
High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) Shelters offer rust proof, waterproof, durable, long-lasting storm shelters ─ resistant to environmental stress and mechanical damage. With a 50-year warranty, HDPE is an engineered polymer…a polyethylene thermoplastic made with a mold. High-Density Polyethylene is also commonly used for: boat lifts and personal watercraft docks, plastic bottles, jugs, food containers, storage totes, underground piping and culverts, plastic lumber and decking, cutting boards, auto parts, toys, etc.. It’s the ultimate in Corrosion Protection.
• Hot Dip Galvanized Storm Shelters
Our Hot Dip Galvanized storm shelters are made of 10 gauge sheet metal and flow tested ─ providing protection from corrosion and rust for a long-lasting, maintenance free storm shelter. With a 50 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 from the steel metallurgically reacts with the molten zinc to form a tightly-bonded metal coating that provides superior corrosion protection to steel. Using zinc to protect steel from corrosion (hot-dip galvanizing) is a 150-year-old practice! Our Galvanized FlatSafe storm 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, the unit is Hot-Dip Galvanized to protect your investment for an expected 50+ years.
• Coal Tar Epoxy Storm Shelters
Coal Tar Epoxy is a heavy duty, high build protective coating that has high strength, is resistant to most corrosive reagents, and is excellent at sealing out moisture. It’s widely used in marine and industrial environments. It is largely applied to steel to protect it from corrosion and rust. It is often seen on steel vessel hulls, underground water and petroleum tanks and pipelines, offshore oil rigs, and dam gates. Our Coal Tar Epoxy underground storm 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 outside of the shelter. The Coal Tar Epoxy bonds to the steel and serves to protect the exterior of the steel shelter from rust and corrosion. The interior of the storm shelter is painted with red oxide primer paint to protect the steel on the interior from corrosion and rust.
