/Emergency Refuge Shelters

Strata Emergency Refuge Shelters are complete safety systems built for the vital purpose of providing an isolated atmosphere of breathable air in the event the air in the working section becomes contaminated or compromised. Tunneling chambers can be mounted directly onto Tunnel Boring Machines (TBM’s), onto rails, or placed within the tunnel while operations are active.
