Our experts are teaming up with Rigid Global Buildings at the conference this year to showcase our blast resistant pre-engineered metal building (PEMB) solutions. Visit our booth (#F-29) to learn more!

The cooperation of our companies links BakerRisk’s in-house knowledge of blast resistant design with Rigid’s proven leadership in the PEMB fabrication and delivery industry.

The demand for blast resistant structures, driven by a facility’s life safety requirements, has forced plant managers to seek out more timely and cost efficient forms of construction. Blast resistant pre-engineered metal buildings have become the natural solution as they can be constructed more efficiently and more economically than other forms of blast resistant structures.

With the teaming of BakerRisk and Rigid, facility owners now have a reliable source for the design, fabrication, and delivery of blast resistant engineered metal buildings. In addition, facility owners have a cost effective and efficient method to include blast resistant design into all types of buildings, including control rooms, warehouses, firewater pump houses, electrical substations, administration offices, and more.

For many clients, the blast resistant PEMB fills an important gap between siting for conventional buildings and a hardened blast resistant modular structure. The blast resistant PEMB can be designed for a wide range of blast loads, but is ideal in resisting vapor cloud explosions (VCEs) with peak free-field overpressures less than 3 psi.


Our experts hope to see you at this conference to discuss these and other solutions with you! Click here to register to attend.
