Engineering Design and Drafting

We take our work seriously at Sandborn Roofs. We have a professional design and drafting department capable of meeting the toughest redesign tasks.
Not only do we design our own seal systems, we complete ‘in house’ testing of all seal assemblies prior to installation in the field. You can be assured that not only do our seal designs meet regulatory standards, but they’re also fully tested to each individual tank’s condition, considering shell anomalies and deformations.
We pride ourselves in providing professional drawings detailing all seal components for easy identification. Our designs and drawings are reviewed and stamped by a Professional Engineer, ensuring no detail is overlooked. Expect the highest standards from our design team!
