Safehouse is a leading provider of safety solutions engineered to make hazardous environments universally safe.
Safehouse offers a range of ‘habitats’ which control environments to achieve safe working conditions. For example, its habitats enable hot work, such as welding or grinding, to be undertaken on an oil or gas facility whilst it is operational and with the associated risk of flammable hydrocarbon gases in circulation – thus maintaining production and minimising the cost implications associated with shutdowns.
Having enabled more than 10 million hours of safe productivity over the last 15 years, SAFEHOUSE habitats are proven as a cost-effective solution to mitigate risk and remain compliant.
The SAFEHOUSE habitat forms part of a fully certified ATEX system and control measure, which when deployed allows hot work of any nature to be undertaken in hazardous environments including those designated as zone 1 and 2.
Control the risk using two key properties:
Containment – the flexible flameproof panel arrangement provides containment of the working area preventing the escape of sparks or welding slag.
Pressurisation – the controlled over-pressure within the habitat provides a barrier preventing the ingress of hydro-carbons or other hazardous gases during operation.
The world’s first ATEX certified pressurised habitat system
The modular construction allows a SAFEHOUSE habitat to be installed to any required size and shape, incorporating penetrations such as structural beams and pipework with ease, ensuring that wherever the work site may be, our habitats can be installed.
The high rate of air change within the habitat and the adjustable air extraction provide safe and comfortable working conditions during the hot work operations, removing noxious fumes as they are produced.
