The security and safety of the people who carry out maintenance in industries where hazardous materials are processed or stored is thrown into sharp focus when explosions and accidents make the headlines. Today providing the safest possible working environments not only applies to the direct operation being carried out, but also the site accommodation and welfare units being used by contractors.
Thurston is the largest manufacturer of the Ultrablast resistant buildings in the UK. These blast resistant buildings have been developed to provide a high degree of safety for the user and meet the challenges faced by those working in hazardous situations. This also includes bomb shelters.
Our all steel Ultrablast range includes stand alone cabins or larger blast resistant buildings including control rooms, offices, canteens and toilet and shower blocks. These anti blast buildings are specifically designed to maximise the safety of your staff and fully comply with the stringent anti-blast regulations specified by the global operatives and the American Society of Civil Engineers.
Ultrablast accommodation is available in a wide range of sizes or can be built to your specification. We design our blast resistant buildings to your exact measurement requirements and standards.
The Ultrablast product has set new, ground-breaking standards for both safety and comfort and is able to withstand a force of up to 1000 millibar over pressure for 100 milliseconds – the equivalent of exerting an 80-ton force.
