Blast Resistant Metal Building Advantages
When designing for a Blast Resistant Building, using a Pre-Engineered Metal Building is a relatively new idea. Traditionally if the client wanted a structure to be blast resistant, they would spec with a concrete structure or a blast resistant modular building. While these methods of construction are perfectly suitable, they can be cumbersome and have limitations inside of a petrochemical facility.
In most cases, the PEMB blast model fits a niche area in industrial facilities just outside of the immediate process zone. Good examples would be Warehouse Buildings, Control Room Buildings, Admin Buildings, MCC Buildings, Maintenance Buildings, etc. Our target zone for construction is between the 0-5 psi blast contours.
