Already successful in Europe, the Anti-Blast range of enhanced modular buildings has been designed to specifically address the potential hazards encountered in petrochemical, energy and process industries and provide a significant degree of protection to occupants in the event of an incident.
The buildings are constructed to rigorous standards and provide a target level of protection of 1% vulnerability. The range is generally supplied to withstand 100Mba free field overpressure with 200Mba reflective overpressure on any face, with the pulse duration at 100m sec. Buildings that can withstand up to 320Mba over pressure are also available.
Jim Muldoon, GCC General Manager at Algeco, said: “This is a significant launch for Algeco in the Middle East – it’s the first time that an anti-blast product to the market in this region which means we are now able to enter new markets with a wider range of tailored products. The launch of our anti-blast products in the Middle East is a significant strategic step and builds on a very successful first half of 2012.”
“As well as introducing new products, we have developed strategic alliances which has enabled us to penetrate key markets such as Qatar and, more recently, KSA. This latest launch will enable us to further develop our relationship with Byrne in the region and we look forward to a successful second half of 2012 as we continue to invest and grow.”
Algeco’s Anti-Blast range includes offices, canteens, drying rooms, toilet blocks and showers, which can be provided either individually, or multi-unit complexes by specially constructed connecting link-ways and unit-to-unit couplings.
The units come in a range of sizes and internal layouts can be designed to meet specific customer needs. A number of design features provide added protection such as windows with laminated glass sliding panels, external shutters, steel doors with substantial hinges and catches and internal perimeter channels to allow all fixtures and fittings to be secured to it to prevent injuries to occupants.
