We work exclusively with 3M, the specialist window film manufacturer of choice. Their 3M UltraSafety Bomb Mitigation Films are the most cost effective way to mitigate damage from blasts – whatever the cause.
A powerful blast from a bomb can cause immeasurable destruction. It would seem that the blast itself would be the least of it, but the effect it can have on glazing is devastating. A single square foot of glass can produce up to 200 deadly, razor-sharp fragments. Flying glass shards are what many times causes severe injury, and even death.
In the event of a nearby blast, synthetic chords in the film itself are designed to stretch, absorbing the energy of the blast as well as arresting the movement of the glass shards both inwards and outwards.
Here is an demonstration of the effect of a nearby explosion on glazing with, and without 3M UltraSafety Bomb Blast Mitigation Film.
When working with flammable chemicals, there is always the risk of an explosion, and every plant or refinery is required to have a plan in place to minimize loss of life. 3M UltraSafety Blast Mitigation Film should be a key part of any safety plan. 3M UltraSafety prevents glass from shattering in high-powered internal and external explosions, which would propel thousands of sharp fragments at high speeds, potentially causing additional serious injuries and fatalities.
Protecting Against Accidental Explosions
Accidents can happen in any business. Unfortunately, due to the often hazardous materials attributed to their industry, industrial, scientific or manufacturing facilities are at a greater risk than most businesses for accidental explosions.
All too often however the dangers posed by shattered glass during these accidental explosions are overlooked. 3M UltraSafety Blast Mitigation Films can be easily retrofitted to glazing in any facility, greatly reducing the risk of flying shards of glass in the event of an accident.
We are serious about protecting your business from the effects of a bomb or accidental explosion, that’s why all of our 3M UltraSafety Blast Mitigation Films go through rigorous testing; meeting and exceeding the performance requirements that it was tested against time and time again under varieties of blast loads.
