FAQ.

When safety and integrity are PARAMOUNT, trust the experts.
What are blast resistant modules?
Blast resistant modules, also known as BRMs, are innovative modular structures that protect employees and assets operating in higher risk areas against explosions, fires or toxic gas releases.
What is a high performance building envelope?
High performance building envelopes, also known as HPBEs, are specialized building systems used in rapid build projects for commercial, industrial and residential construction. The advantage of using a PSI HPBE is that our panels provide benefits that address multiple project needs, with superior properties, above traditional construction materials.
How do our SIPs differ from the rest?
PSI offers advanced SIPs that use sulfate-based magnesium oxide (MgO) board and expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam board insulation. Our SIPs offer key features such as: - Fire resistant - Water resistant - Mold resistant - Pest resistant - Durable - Energy efficient - Eco friendly Our direct competitors offer a chloride-based sheathing with may result in moisture absorption, and lead to the corrosion of any metals that come into direct contact with the board, while other conventional SIPs are constructed from wood studded insulated wall panels, encased with OSB.
What does API – RP 753 mean?
American Petroleum Institute - Recommended Practice. The management of hazards associated with location of process plant portable buildings.
What is an MgO Board?
Magnesium oxide board. PSI uses a sulfate-based magnesium oxide board in all our HPBEs and BRMs.
What is a structural insulated panel?
Structural insulated panels, commonly known as SIPs, are pre-fabricated building panels (think of a sandwich) that use OSB (the bread slices), and interior foam (the sandwich ingredients) to make up a wall panel. There are many variations of SIPs available in the marketplace.
What is Pounds Per Square Inch (psi)?
Pounds per square inch is the pressure resulting from a force of one pound-force applied to an area of one square inch. Paramount Structures Inc. offers a psi range between 1 to 8 psi.
