Protection from explosions, fire and ballistics

Aluminium 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 aluminium foam, it is capable to convert large quantities of kinetic energy into deformation energy.


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

  • Prevention / protective measures

  • Minimise terror damage
