INTERTEC's adaptable GRP material makes it possible to add advanced safety features to enclosures - such as anti-static protection, to fire resistance, blast-proofing and earthquake protection.
Composite GRP enclosures employ versatile 'sandwich' construction techniques. GRP sheets combined with additional layers provide the required protection.
INTERTEC has complete control over fabrication processes. We use this to create shelters to survive specific blast forces - from pressure waves to shock waves - for threats ranging from high wind loads to earthquakes to vapor cloud explosions.
Advanced passive fire resistance is another option. By embedding mineral wool between GRP sheets, enclosures like our proven FIRE SHELTER 1709 can resist fire and degrade slowly and predictably for up to 120 minutes. Thus, the FIRE SHELTER meets the 120 minute fire test defined in ANSI/UL 1709 - a standard that uses the rapidly increasing time/temperature curves of hydrocarbon fires.
GRP provides major advantages over many traditional protection products. Enclosures are rigid, so they can incorporate easy-open access for maintenance. They are light and can be directly mounted on existing piping. These capabilities are widely used to add passive fire protection to ESD systems - protecting assets ranging from actuated valves, or communications-, control- and firefighting-systems.
INTERTEC also offers numerous safety-related products including eye wash stations, safety showers, protectors for emergency stop switches, and passive sample coolers.
