Project Overview

In 1996 Spantech constructed five Spantech 23 metre ESH at an existing explosives depot in Western Australia.

In 2011 Spantech worked with Thales to refurbish the buildings and add an array of internal racking designed specifically to hold the ordnance stored in the buildings.

The racking is connected to the arch by a method that is strong enough to support the large loads and allow the arch to flex in the unlikely event of an explosive event in an adjacent building.

The racks are also earthed to minimise the risk of static electricity.

Refurbishment included:

  • Civil works
  • Concrete paved areas and footings
  • Soil erosion protection
  • HDPE earth mound liner
  • Servicing all doors and motors
  • Galvanised protected surfaces
  • Flexible sealed joints – tape repair
  • Aluminium insect screens
  • Painting of metal surfaces
  • Internal panel joint seals
  • Floor finishes – linemarking
  • Hand rails
  • Static earthing
  • Electrical and lighting – internal
  • Signage
