Our specialized enclosures protect personnel, equipment and property in hazardous situations.
Fire Protection Enclosures for Building Services and Equipment
DuraSystems’ fire enclosures are available with fire ratings up to 4 hours and are designed to protect you critical cabling, piping and control equipment in the event of fire.
Critical systems or life safety systems are critical to the continuous safe operation or emergency shutdown of your facility and must remain operational even under emergency situations. DuraSystems can provide you with fire protection enclosures designed specifically for your operational needs. They are available in both permanent configurations, or where equipment access is required, re-enterable configurations. They are built to withstand some of the harshest environments Mother Nature can dish out.
Re-enterable pipe enclosures with fire ratings up to 4 hours are available to protect your piping systems. DuraSystems has simple, cost effective solutions to protect your critical piping systems.
With electrical enclosures fire rated from 1 to 3 hours, DuraSystems has a fire rated enclosure system to meet all your cable and electrical protection needs. Enclosures designed to meet the stringent requirements of the nuclear industry where safe shut down is most critical, are also available. Enclosures can be constructed in the field or factory assembled. It is important to note that the re-enterable cable tray option allows for easy inspection or the addition of new cables to the cable tray. DuraSystems has the fire protection solution you need to protect your electrical cables.
Where there are pipes and cables you will most often come across fans, pumps and other critical pieces of equipment that need to be fire protected. DuraSystems can design and build fire rated enclosures specific to the requirements of your facilities’ critical equipment.
Fire Enclosures provide fire ratings up to 4 hours and are designed to help keep your critical building services functional during a fire.

ASTM E119 Listed Enclosures for Fuel Oil Lines in Accordance with NYC Building Code
DuraSystems ‘2HR’ enclosures are available with an E119 listed fire rating of 2 hours with a built-in containment provision designed to protect fuel oil lines in accordance with New York City Building Code
Critical systems such as fuel oil lines are critical to the safe operation of your facility and may be required to remain operational even under emergency situations. DuraSystems can provide you with the fire protection enclosures design specifically for your operational needs. These enclosure systems are built to ensure proper containment as well as mechanical exterior protection to withstand impact and ensure longevity.
Manufactured in accordance with MC 1305.9.3, DuraSystems’ ‘2HR’ fuel oil enclosure ensures the horizontal piping offsets shall be further enclosed in construction having a 2-hour fire-resistance rating. Fire-resistance ratings are determined in accordance with BC 703.2 where the fire-resistance rating of building elements, components or assemblies shall be determined in accordance with the test procedures set forth in ASTM E119.
The DuraSystems enclosure product may be used without prior DOB approval in horizontal applications as outlined in section 28-113.2:
"Use of materials. Except as set forth in sections 28-113.2.1 through 113.2.6 materials specifically prescribed by this code or department rules may be used as prescribed without the prior approval of the commissioner."
The ASTM E119 enclosure is constructed of double wall metal ensuring a mechanical protection. The inner materials are of liquid tight 10ga steel construction ensuring code compliant containment of the fuel oil lines which can be sloped to move any leaked fuel to the code required sump or 55-gallon container.
DuraSystems enclosures are a code compliant, single source solution for fuel oil lines that will translate to cost savings for your project!

Blast Resistant Enclosures Protect Personnel, Equipment and Machinery
Blast resistant enclosures with ratings for up to 2 bar blast overpressure to protect critical cabling, piping, equipment and machinery.
To help ensure your critical systems remain operational in the event of an explosion, Durasystems’ blast resistant enclosures are designed to mitigate the effects of this potentially devastating event.
DuraSystems can provide blast resistant enclosures with ratings for up to 2 bar blast overpressure which are designed to protect personnel work areas and other critical equipment from the potentially catastrophic consequences of an explosion.
Designed to fit the specific dimensions of your critical equipment the DuraSystems’ blast resistant enclosures are easy to install and available in re-enterable configurations, to allow easy access for maintenance or inspection.
Quite often the explosion will result in the creation of a post blast fire, further complicating the emergency situation and requiring additional mitigation. To help mitigate the effects of these post blast fires, DuraSystems can add fire ratings up to 4 hours to the blast resistant enclosures.
DuraSystems’ blast resistant enclosures provide up to 2 bar blast overpressure protection and help keep your critical systems working in the event of an explosion.

Acoustic Enclosures for Noisy Equipment and Machinery
DuraSystems acoustic enclosures provide the sound attenuation or “noise reduction” needed to protect personnel from noisy equipment and machinery.
Most companies have equipment and machinery that produce excessive noise levels and put personnel in harm’s way. Local health and safety regulations require that hearing protection be worn in these noisy areas. Just one piece of noisy equipment could require all personnel to wear hearing protection. An expensive proposition when you consider the cost of the actual hearing protection equipment and the enforcement of the health & safety regulations. The potential for hearing damage to personnel and expensive injury claims is also an ever present danger in noisy industrial environments.
DuraSystems can design acoustic enclosures for your noisy equipment and machinery and help reduce the need for cumbersome hearing protection, allowing you to provide a better and safer work environment.
DuraSystems can also design fire, impact and blast resistance features into acoustic enclosures so that one enclosure system meets all your equipment and personnel protection requirements.
DuraSystems’ acoustic enclosures are the ideal solution for noisy equipment and machinery and help protect personnel while providing a better work environment.
