When it comes to Blast Resistant Modules (BRM) there are a wide range of things to consider prior to a purchase or rental. In this week’s edition of the Shipping Container Mods Blog we'd like to take a look at some of the key features to consider before having your BRM delivered.
BEFORE YOU BUY, RENT OR LEASE:
The most important thing to consider before you buy, rent, or lease a Blast Resistant Module is the engineering, design, and construction of the BRM. A top-notch BRM comes with close and sturdy spacing regarding its wall studs. If the studs in your BRM are too far apart, the building’s walls regardless of how thick the steel is are vulnerable to severe damage in the event of an explosion. At DropBox Inc., all of our shipping container modifications – BRMs included – are engineered, designed, and built to meet the most rigorous of construction standards. Complete with all steel exterior and skeletal framing, our blast resistant modules are built with the safety of workers and longevity of the product in mind.
Outside of the steel frame itself, it’s important to look at all of the building’s amenities like floor plans, light fixtures, electrical/plumbing design and all other interior fixtures. Specialty features in the BRM units provided by DropBox Inc. are built to sustain the wear and tear of everyday use, as well as not to become a hazard in the event of an explosion.
WHY ARE PSI OVER RATINGS SO IMPORTANT?
While amenities like a wide range of floor plans, cabinetry, and restrooms are nice when it comes to blast resistant modules, the PSI Over Ratings are the key feature. Utilizing decades of collective experience in the engineering, designing and building of shipping container modifications, DropBox Inc. knows that when it comes to BRM units, the safety of workers is where the buck stops. Regardless of the floor plan, the PSI Over Rating is what really protects your workers in the event of an explosion.
WHAT ABOUT THE REGULATIONS?
Even though there have been several explosions over the years – such as recently where in Crosby, Texas a chemical plant exploded after Hurricane Harvey – there is no official regulatory board to monitor BRM builders’ claims to a BRM unit’s durability. It is important to closely consider the company and products you choose to buy, rent, or lease from.
