Within the petrochemical, oil & gas and power generation industries, the common practice of modifying existing site buildings to function as shelter-in-place safe havens can often prove a timely and costly exercise, resulting in a non-flexible solution as site requirements shift over time.

In response, MineARC has developed a selection of portable toxic gas shelters and blast resistant buildings – the ChemSAFE Range.
