Engineering Your Protection
Protective Technologies' BRM is a multi-use system which is an effective option for protection of personnel and critical infrastructure and is:
PTG's standard 8' x 20' BRM, built on the Unified Wall Panel System methodology, was live blast tested by Applied Research Associates (www.ARA.com) along with a standard ISO container. Charge size was 9000 lbs. ANFO at 150 feet which is equivalent to over 8,000 lbs of TNT. The BRM and the ISO container are pictured below after the first blast. The only damage to the BRM was slight paint chipping and the dummy set up inside was untouched. The ISO container was clearly not survivable.
Test results confirm our BRM can address the following threats:
•Vapor Cloud Explosions (model):
35 psi, 1,179 psi-msec, 200 ms duration
