AMBICO blast resistant steel doors and frames combine blast and air pressure resistance with the functionality of standard hollow metal products. Our entire range of blast resistant products are readily available complete with builders hardware that provides an easy-to-operate door system.
Full engineering capability to design and manufacture blast products to meet the safety requirements of the end-user. Testing of units by independent laboratories complies with the most up to date test standards on the continent. Fire labelled products have been tested in accordance with NFPA-80 and are certified by Underwriters Laboratories and Warnock Hersey International. Blast resistant doors are available with glazing that is factory pre-installed.
Blast Resistant Doors & Frames for US Military Projects
The DoD Minimum Antiterrorism Standards for Buildings is designed to protect DoD personnel from terrorist attacks. Whether retrofitting an existing building or building a new one there are minimum blast pressure requirements that all door assemblies must meet. The specific requirements depend on building location, type, and occupancy. The October 1, 2013 version of UFC 4-010-01 makes it clear that unless a door failure in response to the applied blast load does not pose a risk to occupants (i.e. the door is intercepted by a suitably strong wall before entering an occupied area) all doors must be evaluated for blast resistance at the applicable charge weights & standoff distances.
Blast Resistant Doors & Frames for Industrial Projects
The petrochemical industry invests heavily in designing process plants to minimize the likelihood of accidental explosions. Although the probability of an accidental explosion is very low all buildings located within the range of accidental explosions are designed to be blast resistant. Other common industrial applications are flammable and/or pressurized materials storage and handling, paint booths, and ETO sterilization for medical and pharmaceutical products.
