Standard vs Customised Habitats

A habitat is simply a positive pressure enclosure (otherwise known as an isolation chamber) used to provide a safe work environment for performing hot work in the presence of explosive gases or vapours. Habitats are typically used in conjunction with welding work, often in association with the offshore oil industry.

Standard habitats

SA Habitats provides both electric and pneumatic habitat systems to cater for your requirements. The typical habitat setup is illustrated in the diagram below.


Customised habitats

In addition to our standard habitats, we also provide customised habitats for clients with special requirements. Customisations include different sizes, additional gas detectors and oxygen sensors for reinforced safety, and the option for 2-in-1 electric and pneumatic habitat systems.
