If your company is in the refining, chemical processing, or energy production industry, you know your employees are at an increased risk of injury or personal harm due to the combustible nature of your job. That’s why it’s so important to protect and shelter your workers from potential hazards. Providing blast resistant buildings can help safeguard lives during a worst-case scenario.

Understanding job-site risks and prevention measures (especially if you work with volatile or flammable substances) are two of the best ways to ensure the safety of everyone in your work area. While it may be impossible to prevent every incident, it is possible to plan ahead to ensure the best possible outcome—and that’s where blast resistant modules from Satellite Shelters come in.

Blast Resistant Modules

At Satellite Shelters, we supply modular blast resistant buildings that will keep you and your employees protected in the event of a blast-related incident. With guaranteed protection against forces as strong as 8 psi and 200 ms in duration, our blast resistant modules will keep you and your employees protected from danger on your job site every day. Our blast resistant modules come in a variety of sizes and configurations to meet your specific requirements, as well as an array of features that make dangerous working conditions more comfortable. Additionally, our blast resistant buildings are Avetta-qualified and adhere to Standard RP-753 guidelines.

Understanding Blast Zones

Blast zones include the area directly next to explosive materials, and they can extend outward hundreds of feet. Zones are numbered based on their proximity to the blast and subsequent damage they may experience. We understand workers often need to be within the blast area to perform their jobs. That’s why our blast resistant buildings are made to withstand blasts in zones one, two, and three.
