Durasteel Valve Enclosure Case Study

Location: Dubai, UAE

The Challenge

The client had a safety requirement to protect the main deluge valves within a chemical storage area from potential fire and explosions. The valves were exposed in an open area adjacent to the chemical storage facility.

The Constraints

The 3-sided barrier had to be completely free-standing, wind resistant and weather-proof and maintain its integrity within potentially harsh chemical atmospheric conditions.

The Solution

To build a free-standing Durasteel barrier constructed from 80x60x3mm channels with a single sheet of Durasteel, bolted to the exterior surface. The barrier was completed within 1.5 days from start to finish and when completed, provided the blast and fire protection requirements.

The Result

The site supervisor commented "it was a very fast installation, completed incredibly quickly by a very professional team and we are extremely pleased with the outcome."
