Hydrogen is becoming more and more popular as a green energy option, but is still a very flammable gas. Hydrogen vehicles have partnered with major regular gas distributor to add hydrogen filling capacity at a regular old gas station – this presents great benefit to getting fuel but brings the hazard into the public domain. That is where fire barriers become essential. Residential areas need to be protected from the spread of fire and explosions, and rated fire barriers are a perfect solution to avoid damage and liability to gas stations.
FUEL & EXPOSED TANK FARMS
Many airports in the US have exposed jetfuel tanks at the property perimeter that are unprotected from gunfire, IED, fire or even a crashing vehicle. Many are next to the highway that surrounds the airport creating even more exposure to bad actors. It is essential that these tanks are protected from these types of hazards, and our fire barriers which are rated for ballistics, explosion, wind, and heat are a perfect solution to protect not only the fuel in these tanks farms, but to protect the surrounding airport, jets, and often nearby highways from any collateral damage that could occur.
NATURAL GAS CONTROL HOUSE PROTECTION
We use our jetfire rated fire barriers to protect control houses located at natural gas conversion centers, where the gas is heated and converted from a liquid into a gas. The barriers we use are designed to hold back explosion, gas fire and shrapnel and still stand in wind load. This protects the control house, which is a critical structure that is much harder to replace than a transformer or conversion unit.
