ASPIS-LAM® EXPLOSION RESISTANT ER

ASPIS-LAM® EXPLOSION RESISTANT ER: EXPLOSION-RESISTANT GLAZING

In weather emergencies and terrorist attacks, the ASPIS-LAM® Explosion resistant line represents the number one tool to protect people’s lives. By and large, glass is able to withstand pressure waves created by explosions, depending of course on imponderable factors, such as the amount of explosives used and the distance from the explosion site.

Resistance Class according to EN 13541 Standard Application examples:

ER1 to ER4

airports
power plants
military facilities
government buildings
embassies

WHAT IS AN EXPLOSION?

A pressure / time: any explosion creates a shock wave or blast effect (so-called incident pressure) when it meets an obstacle, creates a pressure peak, also called reflected pressure (about twice the incident pressure), for a certain duration. It is this reflected pressure that is taken into account in standards. After the shock wave comes a depression (negative pressure) equivalent to about 1/3 of the reflected pressure peak.
