COST EFFECTIVE - Modular Containment Systems are more cost effective than other temporary solutions when man-hours for erection and tear-down, durability and reusability are considered.
SIMPLIFIED ERECTION - Panels are ready to use and assemble quickly using fasteners or the Quarter-Turn Locking Key for standard small span structures.
VERSATILITY - Options include air locks, windows, fire suppression systems, service ports, doors, custom adapter panels and AV camera systems for remote monitoring and exposure reduction.
STRENGTH - Perma-Con® panels have steel frames with stainless steel sheathing. Seismically qualified systems are also available.
REUSABILITY - Durability and panel interchangeability allows panels to be reused and reassembled into many different configurations versus disposal.
DECONTAMINATION - Stainless steel interior surfaces allow for easy removal of contaminants.
STRUCTURAL CODE COMPLIANCE - Designs are available that will meet the International Building Code (IBC) and site-specific seismic qualification criteria.
