Rugged Blast Resistant Buildings

Exceptional Design for Harsh Conditions – Rugged says it all!

Rugged Blast Buildings have exceptional design intended for the harshest conditions utilizing guidelines published by American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC).  These guidelines provide in-depth procedures to ensure that your building is designed to resist blasts that are based on the blast type, building location and magnitude of the blast.  Rugged Building Services utilizes advanced 3D software to model the structure and apply the blast load to ensure the structural members are designed to resist the potential threat.

 

When life safety and quality matter - Build your fleet with only Rugged Buildings!

 

Rugged Buildings are engineered and manufactured to stand up to their name, designed to provide the maximum protection required in the most challenging field condition environments, time after time.  Our blast building is designed by our Structural Engineer using state of the art design software for optimum strength of materials and calculated engineering designs for the protection of life and equipment in the blast zone area.  For your safety our unique design specifications are reviewed and approved by a 3rd party engineering firm assuring you the confidence that you will have the appropriate blast protection for your application.  For the past 35 years our manufacturing plant in Charleston, Illinois has produced thousands of pre-engineered, pre-fabricated, transportable buildings used in various industries and militaries around the globe.

 

Certifications that you can trust in compliance with the highest standards of Engineering!

 

Rugged Blast Buildings are designed to meet the requirements of the International Building Code (IBC), and the design loads as specified in the American Society of Civil Engineers “Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures (ASCE 7).  The Rugged “Blast” Building designs are further reviewed by an Independent 3rd party Engineering firm that will certify your building drawings providing state seal approval in multiple states, giving you the most versatility for your fleet.

 

Each Rugged Blast Building complies with State Energy Codes designated in the State Seal Packages.  Rugged Buildings strives to preserve energy consumption by designing energy efficient buildings regarding heating, cooling, ventilating and lighting.

 

Each Rugged Blast Building is compliant to the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) for fire protection, and the National Electrical Code (NEC) for electrical compliance.  Every component installed on our Blast Buildings conforms to Underwriters Laboratory (UL), Underwriters Laboratory of Canada (ULC), and/or Canadian Standards Association (CSA)

 

Rugged Blast Buildings are continuously welded on structural members and exterior joints for maximum strength, and to keep foreign materials out.  The Rugged Buildings manufacturing facility is certified with the American Welding Society (AWS) and the Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB)

 

Upon request our Rugged Support Services Team will refer to the American Petroleum Institute Standard (APIS) RP 753 to assist you with locating and orientating your blast resistant structure.  Our Rugged Support Services Team can visit your site and provide technical expertise on how to minimize risks and hazards keeping your personnel and equipment safe.
