Effective protection against terroristic attacks

The destructiveness of a blast depends on many factors such as the size of the explosive charge, the duration of the blast wave and the distance to the source of the explosion. SÄLZER has extensively tested its products in life tests according to international standards for blast protection such as DIN EN 13123-2 (table below) or according to individual customer requirements.

Individual security concepts tested and certified:

  • Open range tests according to DIN EN 13123-2 / 13124-2 (table below)
  • Shock tube test tests according to DIN EN 13123-1 / 13124-1 (table below)
  • Customized requirements: products tested with various charges e.g. 500kg, 200kg, 100kg in different distances to the test specimen

Requirements of petro-chemical industry:

  • Blast-resistant glazing according to ISO 16933, ISO 16934, DIN EN 13541 (special glass)
