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 permanent buildings are quickly fabricated, shipped, installed, and ready for occupancy.
We have partnered with industry leading companies to offer a turnkey permanent Multi-hazard Resistant Building (MRB) 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 duration with minimum wall displacement and internal vulnerability
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 and tornado F5 wind/debris)
Ensure your immediate response is there
Our mission is to protect your greatest assets – critical equipment and people
