3 Things to Consider for Your Blast Tent

September 20, 2021

If you are considering a blast tent rental for your oil and gas operations then you likely have a few questions about how to choose the best temporary structure for your needs. To find the most suitable option, there are a few things to consider. Detailed planning can help you choose the structure and amenities that can ensure success for your activities.


How many people need to fit inside?

One of the first things you should determine is how many people will be in your blast tent shelter at a time. This affects the size of the tent to rent. In addition, if a lot of people will be sharing the temporary space, it could get pretty warm. Therefore, you may want to consider adding air conditioning or a form of climate-control to your planning list of solutions. (This feature can help keep your workers comfortable.)


What surface will your tent(s) be placed on?

Depending on your available space, you may consider adding a flooring option for your tent rental. If you plan to place your blast tent(s) on grass or other uneven surfaces, flooring can help cut down on tripping hazards and irregular ground. By contrast, if your rental will rest on concrete or asphalt, your delivery technicians will not be able to stake your tents to the ground. Therefore, you may opt for a different type of tent rental, like a frame tent or a clearspan structure.


What time of day will you be using your blast tent(s)?

Additionally, you should consider what time of day you will use your tent(s) and any weather you may need to account for. If you need your tent for nighttime operations, you will likely need lighting inside your rental. On the other hand, during the day you may need air conditioning amenities to keep the interior comfortable for those inside your tent. (You can easily add HVAC options to your rental to provide the best space for your workforce). 

Planning the details of your tent rental can help you find the best temporary structure solution for you. To help with planning and logistics, be sure to call upon experts that can help you determine which tent rentals would be best for your commercial applications.
