Blast resistant products have been becoming increasingly popular, especially in the Government sector of business. As blast type violence has been showing up more often, Pacific Bulletproof Co has been addressing this problem by providing a variety of Blast mitigation products including:

As the threat of terrorist attacks with explosive devices increases we have become much more aware of the need to secure buildings against blast. Windows have become a particular focus, as we have learned that many of the injuries sustained in a blast are the result of flying glass. Standard window designs of monolithic glass will shatter in a blast situation, propelling thousands of razor sharp fragments into the occupied space, resulting in serious injury or even death. These injuries can be minimized or even prevented with the use of laminated glass products for blast mitigation.
Laminated products substantially reduce injuries because the glass fragments are adhered to the interlayer material preventing them from being propelled into the occupied space. Laminated products can also increase protection from other flying debris such as rocks, because the elastic interlayer material helps prevent objects from penetrating. Other materials such as polycarbonates or other plastics can be incorporated into the laminate for additional impact resistance.
Our blast resistant door, frame and window designs are tested and analyzed by independent, internationally recognized engineering laboratories to assess their performance against a wide range of blast events. A large number of full sized door assemblies of different designs have been tested in the shock tube test facilities at Baker Engineering and Risk Consultants (BakerRisk). The resulting blast exposure and performance data have been analytically modeled to develop blast performance diagrams for different door designs. This information permits us to provide a spectrum of door assembly designs that can withstand peak blast pressures from very low levels of less than 1, up to a maximum of 50 pounds per square inch (psi) and very long duration blast events.
While most of the time we custom manufacture our blast resistant products to meet project requirements and specifications, we also offer a selection of blast resistant door units as “stock” items in standard sizes. This inventory allows us to ship directly from our warehouse to you immediately.
Our innovative product line of blast resistant doors is backed up by Pacific Bulletproofs commitment to the highest quality products, attentive customer service, and “small business-style” relationships that have served as the building blocks for us for over 15 years.
