Blast Standards


The threat from bomb blasts and explosions is one of the most difficult issues facing security professionals today. DWS Defense Systems and its partners work with recognized professional consultants who specialize in analyzing the effect of blasts on physical structures to identify the best possible blast mitigation solution-one which maximizes protection without compromising structural integrity. Due to the sensitive nature of this information, specific details of measures implemented to counter the threat of terrorism are generally kept confidential, however, DWS Defense Systems and its partners have designed and installed blast mitigation systems for numerous high profile clients, including government offices, airlines, industrial sites, and commercial structures.
