What are Blast Resistant Modules?

Blast Resistant Modules (BRMs) are modular buildings designed to provide protection from external blasts. It is utilized where there is a potential risk of explosions or other high-impact events. 

BRMs are typically used in the following sectors:

  • Military
  • Industrial
  • Hazardous environments 
  • Petrochemical
  • Oil & Gas

These modules are made from specialized materials that can withstand powerful forces and protect personnel within the building during an explosion. They offer superior levels of safety compared to traditional construction methods, making them an ideal choice for ensuring the safety of people working in hazardous areas. 

Blast-resistant modular buildings come in many sizes, shapes, and designs depending on their intended purpose. For example, some BRM units may have larger, blast resistant windows to allow visibility, while others may have no windows but rather reinforced walls for added strength and protection. They are also available for sale, often from specialized companies specializing in modular buildings. 

Why are Blast Resistant Modules Necessary for Buildings and Structures in High-Risk Areas? 

Blast-resistant modules are essential to protecting buildings and structures located in high-risk areas. In the event of a blast, these modules help to absorb and reduce the impact on nearby structures, thus preventing damage and possible injury or loss of life. 

Explosion resistant modules use cutting-edge engineering technologies to meet the strict safety standards set by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) in The Design of Blast Resistant Building in Petrochemical Facilities. These standards provide the optimal level of protection depending on the customer’s needs and the level of explosion they want to protect against. High damage explosions are those that result in the complete destruction of a building. Medium damage explosions will require major repair on the building, but it will be salvageable. Low damage explosions result in the lowest amount of damage to a building and typically don’t require many repairs. Based on the level of damage a customer would like to protect against, they can decide on the size and scope of their project to ensure their needs are met.

Mechanical Fastening System

Improving the flexibility and installation of blast resistant buildings

Module X Solutions utilizes proprietary building technology to increase overall customer value by an improved design of blast resistant buildings. The patented mechanical fastening system we incorporate into our product line drastically reduces the installation process for blast resistant portable buildings.

The traditional method of installing these buildings involves a more expensive and time consuming welding process. This proprietary solution allows our customers to have more flexibility, while controlling field installation costs, reducing site insurance liability, and increased speed of deployment of a fully integrated engineered solution.

The mechanical fastening system benefits:

  • Significant reduction in deployment time, resulting in lower installation costs
  • Faster occupancy with less site disruptions
  • No hot work permits or painting required
  • Flexibility to relocate complexes and to scale buildings for future reconfigurations and/or addition
  • Engineered to provide the same blast protection as a welded building

When compared to the traditional welded method of installing a 24’ x 40’ complex, mechanical fastening offers approximately a 7 to 1 reduction ratio in installation time. Therefore, in less than the time it takes to weld the interior and exterior seams, a building with our mechanical fastening system can be completely installed and occupied.

X-GAP (Deformation Barrier)

Our proprietary X-Gap Deformation Barrier engineered solution is the safest and most protective design in the marketplace. With the X-Gap, our clients receive an added level of safety for occupants and/or equipment inside of the structure. The X-Gap prevents equipment, furniture, and other objects inside the modular building from becoming projectiles during a blast event.

“Protecting you against the secondary effects of a blast.”

Projectile Engineering

Many blast resistant building providers do not provide complete protection from an explosion; they simply provide protection from the blast overpressures. It is vital that consumers understand that blast engineering does not consider projectiles or flying debris, it only incorporates the effects of blast overpressures.

Module X Solutions has a standard for projectiles that can be applied to any building we manufacture. Additionally, we can provide new projectile engineering for any unique design requirements.
