We Sell And Install 3 Kinds Of Tornado Shelters in Skiatook
Coal Tar Epoxy is a heavy duty, high build protective coating that has high strength, is resistant to many corrosive reagents, and is excellent at sealing out moisture. It is commonly used in industrial and marine environments. It’s largely applied to steel to protect it from corrosion and rust. It is frequently seen on steel boat 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 guarantee 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 outside 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 inside of the storm shelter is painted with red oxide primer paint to protect the steel on the interior from rust and corrosion.
