We Sell And Install 3 Types Of Tornado Shelters in Norman
Coal Tar Epoxy is a heavy duty, high build protective coating that has high durability, is resistant to many corrosive reagents, and is excellent at sealing out moisture. It is widely used in marine and industrial environments. It’s primarily 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 into the exterior of the shelter. The Coal Tar Epoxy bonds to the steel and functions to protect the outside of the steel shield from corrosion and rust. The inside of the storm shelter is painted with red oxide primer paint to protect the steel on the interior from corrosion and rust.
