Booth Industries have been renowned for many years as THE blast door experts, and we have an extremely long and impressive portfolio to prove it.
We have specialist in-house designers that work to create solutions to each individual blast case. As well as creating blast calculations to prove the design & performance, we also use Finite Elemental Analysis (FEA) in order to model and test the performance & design.
Where required, we also work with our extensive network of consultants to provide third-party verification of design & calculations.
Hinged and sliding blast resistant doorsets are available as pre-engineered solutions , or designed to withstand individual dynamic blast load cases, or even the combination of several blast cases. Door construction varies upon the blast pressure, and if fragmentation and fire resistance is required. Our knowledge and experience allows us to create design solutions for extremely large blast loads, across sectors such as national security, nuclear defence, and critical asset protection.
Our standard range of blast doorsets are designed to behave elastically during the blast, and to remain operational after blast, thus providing repeated blast resistance and continued fire protection, together with emergency egress or access.
Depending upon the structural opening size, the Booth bespoke single or multiple latching mechanism is utilised to ensure that integrity is maintained, with the doorset self closing and latching after each operation. Where high blast loads or sizes dictate, then a shoot bolt system is used to withstand the effects of both rebound and negative blast pressures. Both options are available with pneumatic, hydraulic or electrical power operation with a selection of safety mechanisms.
Added fragmentation protection can be provided to the external door skin to prevent projectile penetration through the door leaf.
Typical applications for blast resistant doorsets include hazardous petrochemical and pharmaceutical sites, as well as anti-terrorist applications at sensitive and secure locations.
