SB Aluminium Services, along with our project partner JLC Group Ltd, have recently designed, developed, and manufactured our new range of fully certified ISO 16933:2007 compliant explosion resistant sliding door systems. With the number of threats increasing constantly, we saw a great need to develop a product that can be installed in various infrastructure buildings in order to protect those inside.
Blast resist doors of this nature have been produced before, however we take great pride in being able to say that we manufacture the largest doors that have ever withstood a blast test of this magnitude; measuring 30% larger than any comparable blast resistant door system currently on the market.
A few weeks ago, SB Aluminium and the JLC Group Bomb-blast team, joined by members of our clients security department, witnessed the incredible force generated by a 100kg (220lb) car bomb. What was more impressive was what followed.... A SB Aluminium/JLC blast resistant sliding door system, gleaming in the sun, showing nothing but a scratch, and still operational.
With ever increasing terrorist threat levels and attacks, it made sense to look into and develop a blast resistant sliding door system, to help increase the protection of people within buildings that may be the subject of an attack such as a car bomb.
The photograph to the left is the actual blast that our new sliding door system was subject to, and at a distance of just 25 metres away from our installation point.
Our doors survived with nothing but a scratch from flying debris, and remained operational.
