Safetydrape® is not reliant on the strength of the anchorage!
Unlike other glass hazard mitigation products, Safetydrape® is not dependent on anchorage. Safetydrape® vents the pressure instead of relying on brute force to keep the blast from entering. When an external explosion or bomb blast occurs, the curtain billows out, allowing the pressure to vent while the curtain catches the lethal flying glass shards. Minimal stress is transferred to the anchoring hardware.
This photograph was taken inside our test structure during a Force Protection Equipment Demonstration (FPED). Live charges were set off and the audience visited the test structure after the explosion.
The Safetydrape® was anchored with #8 2” zinc plated steel screws into 3/4” plywood, see test link. This track and bracket assembly was subject to over 20 blasts which exceeded 55 psi. The holes for the screws were never changed.
