Blast Containment Wall Covering

(Please allow a minute for the movie to load.)
With our vast and practical experience in applying advanced textile
technology for protection and saving lives, one of our sister companies
has developed a composite fabric with proprietary properties to
act as a wall covering shield. The textile technology used to produce
this composite fabric with its protective properties is based on
an exclusive spinning and weaving process developed by our textile
This very unique fabric shield has been thoroughly blast tested, approved,
and recommended by the Israel Defense Forces Home Command. The fabric
has also been successfully demonstrated at the Quantico U.S. Marine
Base, Virginia, (Forces Protection Equipment Demonstration 1997).
The blast and after-shock that follows a nearby explosion, whether
from a terrorist act or a missile, causes building walls to collapse
and fragmentize. This explosion turns the fragments of concrete
and brick into lethal projectiles, slamming into everything in their
path. It is an established fact that nearly all the injuries and
fatalities caused by nearby explosions are from flying concrete
and brick fragments.
After the explosive blast and after-shock waves have damaged the
building structure, the applied blast containment wall covering
stretches under the impact of the blast. The Blast Containment Wall
Covering distributes the stresses caused by the blast and prevents
the concrete and brick fragments from penetrating into the building
interior, thus shielding and greatly reducing the number of injuries
caused to people within the building.
In the pictures to the right, the concrete wall with the Blast
Containment Wall Covering was subjected to the same reflected blast
pressure as the unprotected wall. While the unprotected wall has
fragments of concrete scattered all around, the wall with the mounted
Blast Containment Wall Covering contained all the fragments behind
the blast shield.
