SAFEHOUSE habitats are the world’s first fully accredited and certified pressurised flexible enclosures to provide a safe environment for hot work in potentially flammable hazardous areas.

Used extensively throughout the oil and gas industry (upstream, midstream and downstream), SAFEHOUSE habitats are also suitable for applications in many other sectors, including chemical processing, distilling, food processing, marine, utilities and water treatment – any industry sector where the creation of a safe area within an otherwise hazardous working environment can be beneficial.

SAFEHOUSE habitats have a myriad of different applications, each one engineered specifically to your requirements. From reducing shut-down schedules, to eradicating odours or potential leakages by creating a negative pressure environment; we can help you improve safety, productivity and welfare.

Hot work with SAFEHOUSE habitats

SAFEHOUSE habitats can be used to carry out any type of hot work, such as welding, cutting or grinding, in a hazardous area. This is achieved by:
• Containment
• Pressurisation
• Modular construction
• Air extraction

Complementary equipment

SAFEHOUSE habitats can be used with a range of
complementary equipment including:
• Air conditioning module – SafeCool
• Heating system – SafeHeat
• Gas sensing module
• Multi sensing module
• Pressure differential module
• Remote gas sensor
• Welding control module
