More about Blast-Proof Containers
Are blast-proof containers and blast-resistant containers different?
While blast-resistant containers provide protection against explosions, no structure can guarantee complete safety in all situations. For that reason, the correct industry term is blast-resistant buildings, not blast-proof. It's a common misconception that the blast-proof office containers are blast-proof.
What are blast-proof containers?
Blast-proof containers are designed to protect the occupants and minimize damage in the event of an explosion. As discussed above, the preferred industry term is blast-resistant .
- Purpose: Blast-proof office containers used to protect equipment, materials or personnel in high-risk areas such as oil and gas facilities, construction sites, military installations and for disaster preparedness.
- Construction: The walls, roof and floor of blast-resistant containers are made from materials such as steel or concrete. These materials, along with blast-resistant panels or layers, absorb and dissipate the energy from and explosion, protecting what’s inside.
- Blast-Resistance Rating: Blast-resistant buildings are rated in two ways—the amount of pressure they can withstand from an explosion and the response level. The amount of pressure in pounds per square inch (psi) that the building can withstand is given a number rating. The higher the rating, the more resistant the building is to blasts. The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) establishes response level ratings for blast-resistant buildings based on the predicted amount of repair that a structure would need after an explosion. The response level ratings are low, medium and high. With low meaning an explosion would do very little damage and require a low response and high meaning the building is predicted to sustain substantial damage in an explosion.
- Design Considerations: Many design features are included in blast-resistant containers to minimize the impact of an explosion. These include blast-absorbing materials, reinforced doors, windows made of laminated or tempered glass and explosion venting systems.
- Modular and Portable: Blast-resistant containers from HUNTER are designed to be modular and portable. They can be stacked or interconnected to create larger protected areas or custom configurations. We make blast-proof building rental and setup easy. For most single blast-proof buildings, once it arrives to your location there is easy roll-off delivery, with no crane required!
What is the response level of Hunter Onsite's blast-proof buildings?
All Hunter Onsite blast-proof buildings (blast-resistant) have a medium to low response level, and are API PR 752/753/756 compliant.
How are blast-proof containers rated?
The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) defines how blast-proof office containers are rated. Buildings are rated by response level from Low to High based on the predicted amount of repair that a structure would need after an explosion. A Low Response means the building may have little damage after an event and can still be used. Minor repairs from damage may be needed but the building can be used in the meantime. A Medium Response will require significant repairs after a blast due to widespread building damage. The building should not be used until the repairs are made. A High Response loses structural integrity after a blast. It is highly likely you'd need to replace the building all together. Hunter Onsite does not rent High Response modules.
