5 Equipment Options for Plants and Refineries

When it comes to keeping your workforce safe, there are a lot of options to consider. Personal protective equipment and other items such as forklifts, tie downs, ladders, etc. that make employees safe on the job-site are usually what come to mind, but what about the office or storage building to house additional workers or tools and equipment?

It’s important to also consider the building that employees work out of, especially in high risk industrial areas like plants or refineries. You cannot stop every accident, but being prepared can help you avoid them.

Satellite Shelters provides safe space and equipment options that were built with your safety in mind.

Blast Resistant Modules (BRMs)

Multi-wide and Multi-level Blast Resistant Modules

Satellite Safety Shelters BRMs are rated to withstand a blast from 1 to 8 PSI and up to 200 milliseconds in duration. These buildings meet the American Petroleum Institute’s Recommended Practice # 753 (API RP-753) which provides guidance for reducing the risk to personnel located in portable buildings from potential explosion, fire, and toxic release hazards.

There are different options for BRM configurations, including:

  • Single-wide units
    • For use on small job-sites or when limited personnel need safe building access.
  • Multi-wide units
    • For use on bigger job-sites with lots of personnel.
    • Can also be used for conference, lunchroom, or safety huddle space.
  • Multi-level units
    • For use with limited job-site space when the only way to go is up.
    • Combined with the single-wide units to create a quad office formation.
    • Combined with the multi-wide units, this configuration offers a lot of different use options.

Modular Buildings

Modular Building from Satellite Shelters

Satellite’s modular buildings are manufactured in a factory-controlled environment to the same standards as traditional construction. Modular Buildings are built as individual units and shipped to your job-site in pieces. Once all the pieces are on-site, the units are assembled together to create your building design.

Mobile Offices

Single-Wide Mobile Offices from Satellite Shelters

Mobile Offices come in single- or multi-wide configurations in a variety of sizes and floor plans. The most common use is for contractor’s offices on traditional construction sites, but we’ve also seen them used as temporary office space for hiring trailers, cooling or warming stations for special events, or even for ticket sales and guard houses.

Single-wide sizes range from 8′ x 20′ to 12′ x 60′ and can include private offices and restrooms. Our most common double-wide size is 24′ x 60′ which contains 4 private offices and a large open area for conference or cubical office space.

Storage Containers

Storage Containers from Satellite Shelters

Satellite’s storage containers come in 2 sizes: 8′ x 20′ and 8′ x 40′. They have corrugated steel sides and are wind and water tight to keep your materials dry and protected. Large cargo doors allow entry for pallet loading and unloading and a security lock box can be installed.
