Balanced Hazard Protection.
Home Safe, Every Day.
Hazard and Blast Resistant Buildings
Patented FORTRESS Protective Buildings are blast resistant buildings constructed from modular components that provide design flexibility as well as multi-hazard protection from fragment, overpressure, thermal, toxic, and extreme weather events. Using innovative modular construction, our buildings are quickly fabricated, shipped, installed, and ready for occupancy.
We have partnered with industry leading companies to offer a turnkey blast resistant building that provides a high degree of protection from a range of hazards. Due to our patented modular design, site owners and operators not only benefit from knowing that building occupants will be protected, but can also appreciate that project costs and site disruption will be minimized.
Hazard Design Basis
3/4" steel required for same resistance to 1" projectile
8 psi, >>200 ms (very long) duration with minimum wall displacement
1/4" impinged saturated propane jet fire for one hour; <139°F inside air temperature
<0.1 ACH main building, <0.03 ACH interior SIP room
Extreme weather (i.e., Hurricane Cat 5 wind/debris)

The importance & benefits of disaster-resilient structures at modern worksites Disaster can strike at any time, even with proper precautions. Toxic chemical leaks, explosions, or severe weather events can endanger worksite personnel and critical equipment. Organizations can’t anticipate or stop every potential disaster. But they can prepare ahead of time by choosing disaster-resilient structures. Properly designed structures can offer valuable, lasting protection for workers when needed, saving lives that might otherwise be placed in jeopardy. Natural and worksite disasters in the United States Natural disasters include hazardous weather events such…
