Through experience with BakerRisk’s Pressure Testing Research Cooperative (PTRC), our team of engineers have a unique understanding of potential hazards from accidental tool failures, which have the potential to pose significant projectile, overpressure, or water spray hazards to nearby personnel and infrastructure.  Our hazard mitigation strategies leverage that knowledge base to develop innovative, safe, and cost-effective solutions for our clients.

BakerRisk has designed numerous barricades, such as enclosures and portable shields, as part of high-pressure testing hazard mitigation. Barricades are typically custom-designed to meet the needs of the specific test hazards, operation, and facility.  We have designed small mobile steel carts, heavily-reinforced concrete enclosures, modular steel enclosures as well as local projectile and water jet shields. BakerRisk can also provide pressure test enclosures as a turnkey design-build operation.

BakerRisk has evaluated and upgraded existing enclosures, shipping containers, and other potential structures already owned by a facility, resulting in significant cost savings for our clients. In addition to the structural design of barricades, barricade doors, and bunkers, BakerRisk can also calculate safe standoff distances for projectile trajectories and blast loads in the open air or impeded by a barricade.
