Blast Resistant Curtain Wall Facades

by Wright Style Limited

The SG blast resistant curtain wall facade system offers a significant development in the design of blast mitigation glazing systems. Designed as a primary protection system to prevent integrity failure of the glazing and framing support from bomb blasts.


The system can achieve protection from explosive risks placed within a close proximity to the fa ade. Recent live bomb blast tests have been carried out and videos can be viewed via the links on this page.


Blast Resistant Curtain Wall slim sightlines


The narrow 60mm sightline, in combination with the structurally glazed exterior, gives the appearance of any other non-specialised steel curtain wall facade system. This enables the designer to move away from the traditional wide profiles normally associated with blast resistant systems. Glass curtain walling facades can now be used extensively and safely bomb proof buildings no longer have to look like concrete bunkers.


There is a vast range of differences in the design details depending on the level of protection required; not only size of bomb blast but how close a proximity; all this needs to be taken into consideration before accurate technical information and design can be advised.


An up to date specification guide is available by the link below (blast resistant systems datasheet). This specification contains the measurements and results from the official report of the latest bomb test explosions.


Blast Resistant Glass


Designed as a primary protection product, for use in our tested bomb resistant steel glazing systems. The glass prevents the fragmentation associated with normal glass. This is widely acknowledged as the main cause of injury when a building is subject to an explosive attack.


Blast resistant glass is constructed using a plastic medium that can remain elastic under pressure load. The glass absorbs and disperses the impact pressure wave whilst retaining broken glass and flying debris.

Latest news & updates for Blast Resistant Curtain Wall Facades

Estimating the cost of a project is often more about precisely calculating the level of safety that is required. That’s the job of Pete Hammond, our senior estimator, who is expert at determining the performance characteristics of our advanced glazing systems against different threat levels. It means, for example, calculating the likely blast loading from various levels of attack at different stand-off distances.

Ten years ago, Wrightstyle tested one of its systems against a lorry bomb and, immediately afterwards, a car bomb.
