It's that simple.

Manufacturing the world's most innovative
Hot Work Safety Enclosures.

Based in Houston, Texas, PetroHab™ manufactures, leases, sells, and maintains the oil & gas industry’s premier Hot Work Safety Enclosures, also known as “Pressurized Welding Enclosures” or “Habitats.”

We aim to increase safety at workplaces by providing our technologically advanced products engineered to protect people working in hazardous environments.

Patented Interlocking Technology

PetroHab’s portable, modular, and highly fire-retardant habitats are utilized in a variety of industrial settings where hot work containment is required and desired to mitigate against the risks associated with hot work-related activities.

PetroHab™ utilizes a patented “Quadra-Lock®” panel interlocking technology to assemble the panels that make up its habitats secure.

Safe Working Conditions

Sparks and molten materials from hot work can scatter more than 35 feet during welding, cutting, chipping, brazing, soldering, and grinding activities. Hot work is a leading cause of industrial fires, consistently ranking in the top five causes of fires across all industries.

Our products offer protection at hot work pressurized welding habitats, which control environments to achieve safe working conditions.


The Petro-Habitat is our full featured habitat. This product is best used in high-risk work environments and where ignition is likely. With interchangeable panels, our Quadra-Lock® technology, pneumatic air supply, window panels and intrusion/protrusion panels, the Petro-Habitat is the perfect solution for any work environment.


The Petro-Shield is the habitat created with welders in mind. The Petro-Shield is mobile and modular to support hot-work operations in the field while protecting workers from environmental conditions.

This Hot Work Safety Enclosure is easy to expand in 4-foot increments. An optional air conditioner or heater can be attached.


The Petro-Lite is ideal for improving safety and productivity. Its simple, modular design requires no more than two people to set up and can be attached in 5 minutes.

The Petro-Shield can attach to any standard scaffolding, or an optional stand-along scaffolding can be provided when scaffolding is not available.

Health & Safety

Safety Professionals are especially challenged to ensure the health and safety of workers conducting the desired hot work.

Besides the concerns relating to the health and safety of workers, companies, such as those related to the oil & gas industry, are especially sensitive to the legal ramifications relating to the loss of humans lives and the destruction and replacement of a company’s assets.
