Blast Resistant Module (BRM)

Protective Technologies' BRM is a multi-use system which is an effective option for protection of personnel and critical infrastructure and is:

  • Tested with Computational Analysis, tested on the country's only Blast Simulator at Jacobs School of Engineering at University of California, San Diego and Live Blast Testing by Applied Research Associates (see video below and test results.)
  • Fully transportable and modular system
  • Stand-alone as a single unit or connection of multiple modules to form a larger building

BRM Blast Testing

 PTG's standard 8' x 8' x 20' BRM was tested by Applied Research Associates (www.ARA.com)  in Southwest Texas 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 while the ISO container was clearly not survivable.
