Protecting Building Occupants From the Effects of Bomb Blasts.
With years of engineering experience and data collected from Open Air Arena Blast Testing, Kawneer/Traco can offer engineered solutions to protect against a range of blast events.
Kawneer/Traco offers engineered solutions for Entrances, Framing, Curtain Walls and Windows. With engineering, analysis and data compiled from our own Open Air Arena Blast Tests conducted per ASTM F 1642-04 at a peak overpressure of 6 psi and a positive phase impulse of 42 psi-msec., we are ready to address the needs of your Blast Resistant project.
When and Why:
As mandated per:
- General Services Administration (GSA/ISC)
- Department of Defense (DoD)
- Veterans Affairs (VA)
Products that meet these standards include glazed systems designed to protect the occupants of a building from flying glass fragments as a result of a bomb blast event. Blast resistant products consist of laminated glass infill within standard aluminum frames anchored to the surrounding building.
