Specialised, Bespoke, Inflatable Habitats
At JB Roche, we have been designing and building inflatable habitats for the aviation sector for more than 15 years. These original and innovative structures were developed and patented by us as a means of providing instant, safe, environment controlled and cost effective protection when working in harsh outdoor conditions. In conjunction with experts from the oil and gas Industry, we have now developed a range of pop up and inflatable habitats that will revolutionise encapsulation techniques in this sector.
Blast & Paint Habitats
Ideal for containment of blast material within the encapsulation and then subsequent application of primers and paints. Our Blast & Paint Habitats provide a controlled work environment and prevent air pollution. We supply ducts and vents as standard in our habitats to facilitate fume extraction.
Large inflatable habitats to enable helidecks to be cleaned and re-coated in a small number of passes. These habitats provide a safer, more controlled work area for a team to carry out helideck maintenance or repairs. This is particularly beneficial with the need for helicopter take-off and landings.
Temporary Stores Habitats
Temporary storage habitats are ideal for the storage of paints, welding equipment, scaffolding, etc. at remote site locations. These habitats enable you to position a secure, portable warehouse at the desired site location and will protect project supplies and equipment from the elements.
Tank Roof Habitats (Fixed & Floating)
Light weight inflatable habitats for rapid deployment in areas where conventional scaffolding is unsuitable for use. Our Tank Roof Habitats are very specialised and can weigh as little as 1 kg/m² of surface area covered. This allows them to be deployed on top of structures that are not designed for heavy loadings.
Pipe Rack Habitats
Ideal for X-raying, blasting and painting pipelines when used in conjunction with scaffolding towers. Pipe rack habitats help to create a more controlled and comfortable work environment by completely encapsulating the work area, facilitating fume and debris extraction in addition to humidity control. These structures can be very quickly re-located.
These Habitats which incorporate welding blankets can be deployed in under five minutes for pipe and spot welds. These Welding Habitats incorporate fire retardant materials to withstand temperatures up to 500 °C (932 °F). All JB Roche Welding Habitats include roof vents for dissipation of welding fumes, as standard.
MEWP Habitats provide instant protection from the elements when conducting elevated basket work. These habitats are designed to provide a more controlled, secure environment and keep workers warm and dry when working at height on mobile elevated work platforms.
Rig Leg Habitats
Rig Leg Habitats are designed to provide secure encapsulation of rig legs for inspection purposes. They help oil & gas companies to meet site compliance requirements by providing a safe, enclosed environment in which to conduct routine or emergency inspections of rig legs.
Pipe Loop Habitats
One of the largest oil & gas companies chose JB Roche to design and build specialised inflatable habitats to provide protection during x-ray and corrosion control of high pressure pipework. We offer bespoke habitats for all types of oil & gas installations.
What Our Customers Say
Product is excellent. JB Roche provide a solution that does exactly what it says on the tin. They have produced a make-to-do solution rather than a make-do one.
