Blast & Hurricane Door and Hardware Solutions


Critical Factors in Specifying a Door Assembly that Withstands Blasts & Extreme Winds

Download Whitepaper

Some buildings and spaces, due to the nature of their operations, are susceptible to explosions. Blasts may be predictable, for example, in a laboratory setting, where explosions are generated intentionally. They may be unintentional, as the U.S. and other countries have witnessed when gas refineries, chemical storage, or manufacturing facilities unexpectdely explode. Or isolated events, as in the case of a terrorist or sabotage attack. Other structures are vulnerable to hurricanes and gale-force winds. How, then can we ensure door assemblies remain in place and operable during such an event? Download whitepaper
