Several hundred mine safety chambers were fabricated for a large mining company. Click on the image to view more photos.

Somerset Welding & Steel (SWS) was contracted by a company specializing in mine safety, to manufacture and paint the steel vessels for six different models of mine safety chambers.

Once outfitted by our partners, the mine safety chambers provide oxygen, food, water, and safe haven for miners in case of emergency.  The walk-in chambers are equipped with air-locks to purge poisonous mine air, prior to entering the main safety chamber.
