Blast Doors

Blast Doors

EEP offers a wide range of pre-engineered or tailor made blast protection doors to suit a variety of applications, specialising in military bunkers, munitions depots, communications centres, personal protection rooms and industrial and petrochemical storage. Doors can be tailor made to provide Electromagnetic Pulse Protection and Ionising Radiation Shielding.


Applications:

Blast Doors and Valves
  • Military bunkers
  • Chemical and hazardous material storage rooms
  • Pharmaceutical facilities and university laboratories
  • Bioscience and nanotechnology research buildings
  • Petrochemical and industrial complexes
  • Nuclear power stations
  • Refineries
  • Engine test cells
  • Ammunition depots, munitions storage facilities
  • Missile tests and launch sites

As well as numerous other applications requiring Blast protection or Electromagnetic Pulse Protection Filters.

Specification:

  • Due to the unique nature of some projects, our design team can create specific blast doors to suit the requirements of each situation.
  • The service includes the design, assembly, installation, servicing and testing of the shielded structures and equipment.
  • EEP blast doors can be tailored to offer electromagnetic pulse protection (EMP), ionising radiation shielding, and to shield against conventional explosives and gas infiltration (see Gas-tight doors)
  • Blast resistant doors and windows assure the highest blast protection under critical conditions for both exterior and interior environments.

    Modular Blast Valves:

    • In addition to blast doors, EEP offers modular blast valves.
    • These are utilised in blast protected areas where a large airflow is required.
    • They are suitable for both inlet and exhaust air and have been designed to withstand loads of 1.0 MPa from both sides.
    • The modular blast valve can withstand temperatures of up to 150°C.

Design/Materials:

  • The blast valve consists of modules fitted into wall frames.
  • The valves can be installed both vertically and horizontally.
  • The blast valve closes on impact of a blast and remains closed during the reverse pressure phase. When the blast has passed, the valve returns to its open position.
  • The blast frames are made from steel and are designed for casting into concrete. If required they can also be supplied for bolting onto or welding into steel walls. The modules are made from aluminium alloy.
