A blast wall is a barrier that protects structures and lives from explosive blast pressure, debris and fires. Blast walls prevent fragmentation and flyrock from traveling at high velocity and reduce peak explosive pressure from shockwaves that can impact the surroundings.
When to Use a Blast Wall
Blast shield walls are erected to safeguard property and personal from anomalies. These barriers absorb the energy created by an explosion and block shrapnel and debris from causing unintended damage or loss.
How Blast Walls Are Utilized
Blast walls are often set at 90-degree angles to surround a blast or shield a facade. They can cover detonations underground or underwater as well. They can also be positioned overhead or on roofing systems, both internally and externally.
Below are some additional common applications of blast walls:
- Construction or mining operations erect blast walls before breaking and removing obstructive rock.
- Blast walls are positioned at pedestrian entry control points, like parking garages and airport terminals, to shield vulnerable facilities from blast fragmentation and blazes.
- Facility managers can retrofit older buildings with blast walls to withstand heavy explosive forces and enhance safety.
- The risk of chemical explosions and consequent injuries and damage, particularly at petrochemical manufacturing plants and research labs, can be mitigated with blast walls.
