General Description: 

AMBICO Blast & Pressure Resistant Overhead Doors are highly engineered multi-leaf door assemblies designed to withstand a wide range of explosive pressures, including dynamic pressure. With a focus on providing exceptional blast resistance, these overhead doors combine blast-resistant panels with upward-acting, counter-weight overhead door hardware. AMBICO blast resistant products have undergone rigorous laboratory testing and are independently certified by professional engineers, ensuring their reliability and performance. Trust in AMBICO for industry-leading blast-resistant solutions.

Product Details: 

AMBICO’s Blast & Pressure Resistant Overhead Doors are designed to meet the demanding safety requirements of various applications. Here are the key product details:

  • Blast and Pressure Resistance: Our blast-resistant overhead doors are engineered to withstand a range of explosive pressures, offering a reliable barrier against blasts.
  • Rugged Hardware and Counterbalance System: The complete assemblies of our blast-resistant overhead doors are furnished with rugged hardware and a counterbalance system, ensuring smooth operation and durability. This combination of hardware and counterbalance system allows for an easy-to-operate door system that can withstand the forces associated with explosions.
  • Full Engineering Capability: With full engineering capability, we can design and manufacture blast-resistant overhead door and hardware assemblies to meet the most demanding safety requirements. Our team of experts ensures that every aspect of the design and manufacturing process is carefully considered, providing a reliable and high-performance solution.
  • Electrical Operators and Accessories: Our blast-resistant overhead doors can be operated using electrical operators that comply with the latest standards set by the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA). These operators and accessories enhance the functionality of the door system, ensuring efficient and safe operation.

Use Cases: 

AMBICO’s Blast & Pressure Resistant Overhead Doors find valuable applications in various scenarios where blast protection is essential. Here are some key use cases:

  1. Government and Military Installations: Our blast-resistant overhead doors are ideal for protecting government and military installations, including sensitive areas, bunkers, and armories. These doors provide the necessary protection against explosive forces, safeguarding personnel, and critical assets.
  2. Industrial Facilities: In industrial settings, such as refineries, chemical plants, or manufacturing facilities, blast protection is essential. Our blast-resistant overhead doors offer reliable solutions for protecting personnel, equipment, and valuable assets from potential blasts or explosions, ensuring operational continuity and worker safety.
  3. Critical Infrastructure: Protect critical infrastructure facilities, including power plants, transportation hubs, and water treatment plants, with our blast-resistant overhead doors. These facilities are potential targets for attacks, and our doors provide the necessary defence against explosive pressures, ensuring the uninterrupted functioning of essential services and the safety of personnel.

Door hardware has been specifically designed and tested to form an integral part of AMBICO blast resistant units. When the door is under pressure in the unseated position the entire assembly can be subject to severe structural loads.

We recognize that blast resistant steel overhead doors are a highly specialized product. AMBICO engineers look forward to working with AEC (Architectural/Engineering/Construction) professionals to provide a detailed specification prior to tender in order to meet the demands associated with unique project applications.

AMBICO has extensive experience with the installation of these products. On request, AMBICO provides a lead-hand from the factory to work closely with local installation forces to review the scope of work at the site, to assist with the layout of the materials and to troubleshoot at the close-out of the project.

Blast events are defined by two distinct phases, an initial phase where the full amount of the explosive pressure specified is loaded onto the assembly and a second phase which is also known as the “rebound” pressure where the initial blast pressure dissipates to the ambient pressure immediately prior to the blast event. The extent of the blast pressure during the rebound phase is expressed as a percentage of the initial blast pressure. This figure ranges from zero percent to one hundred percent. When a 100% rebound load is specified the door assembly must withstand the full load of the blast in both directions. When the rebound load is 0% the door assembly must withstand the blast load in the initial phase only.
