Safe Room Construction

Built to any size, Safe Rooms are either excavated out of the side wall of the entry, in a cross-cut or are constructed in an entry using multiple stoppings. For construction in coal mines and to meet federal regulations, Strata offers a 15 PSI Block Stopping, along with a thin spray-on impermeable liner to coat the walls of the room.

Strata Safe Rooms come equipped with a Modular Kit, including air conditioning, breathable air systems, storage, and other essential supplies.
