Protection from explosions, fire and ballistics

Aluminum foam systems are suitable for usage in personal and building protection. These systems are distinguished by their effect as explosion protection as well as their resistance to fire. Through the cellular structure of the aluminum foam, it is capable to convert large quantities of kinetic energy into deformation energy.

Advantages

Buildings, containers and vehicles can be equipped faster, lighter and therefore less expensively through the use of aluminum foam sandwiches.

  • Prevention / protective measures

  • Minimise terror damage

  • Minimisation of personal and property damage

  • Safety vests & helmets

Classifications

  • Non-flammable, fulfils fire safety requirement (DIN EN 45545-2)
  • No toxic gases (DIN EN 45545-2)
  • Achieves fire resistance classes,
    for example, E30 (DIN EN 13501-2,
    DIN EN 1363-1)
  • Transport packaging for explosives
    (UN 6A, 6B, 6C)

Quick protection made of aluminum foam for safety-relevant areas

The initial situation · Mobile, fast and effective security solutions in public areas are becoming increasingly important for personal protection.

Example scenario: A manless suitcase is found in an airport terminal and the environment has to be secured as quickly as possible. In the case of a serious threat, there is as yet no genuine immediate measure to protect people and property.

The solution · In the future, a mobile safety room made of aluminum foam can be used precisely in this case, and the danger can be effectively mitigated within a few seconds. The elements are freely combinable to a mobile safety room from 3 to 6 walls.

The material · Aluminum foam panels of 10 mm to 50 mm thickness, depending on the application, in the form of individual walls on a stand system with castors.

Advantages

  • Can be used as an immediate protection measure for the protection of irreproachable items
  • In the case of an explosion, the aluminum foam absorbs the explosive force substantially
  • A possible explosive effect on the surrounding environment can be effectively reduced
  • Elements are built up within a few seconds
  • Walls may e.g. can be provided with advertising as a room divider, "camouflaged" as a decorative element, and thus, if necessary, refinanced
  • Fast availability on the spot
