Blast Rating Upgrade
Blast rating upgrades for refuge chambers are an optional feature for all MineARC Refuge Chambers and Safe Havens.
MineARC utilises highly specialised materials and engineering techniques to build chambers that can withstand the concussive forces of extreme blasts and explosions within heavy industry. Through careful analysis of a site’s application and hazard assessment, MineARC can engineer a highly customised refuge chamber or safe haven to meet their specific blast rating requirements.
Blast Shield Protection
MineARC can provide structural additions to a refuge chamber or safe haven in order to provide blast shield protection for susceptible components.
This added protection prevents damage to areas of the chamber that either provide life support (such as air conditioning and mine air filtration) or components that, if damaged, will compromise the breathing integrity of the chamber (such as the portal window).
