ContraBlast® Blast & Fire Wall Protection provides a robust lightweight solution for passive fire protection, thermal and blast protection. ContraBlast® panels are manufactured using Advanced Insulation’s award winning MS400 lightweight syntactic phenolic foam as the core material reinforced with a laminate matrix. A purpose designed multi layer laminate skin is used as a weather proof outer cover. A vacuum resin transfer (VRT) process is used to infuse the components with phenolic resin ensuring a robust bonded integral panel formed without the need for adhesives.
The ContraBlast® system offers over a 50% weight saving against the conventional steel blast wall and the system comes with either a H120 or JF120 fire rating. The system provides resistance to blast pressures of up to 1.5 Bar with the added benefit of space saving in excess of 60%. The panel system is fitted as a dry/cold construction with no welding or extra coatings required and is modular making it easy to incorporate into new design applications or for retrofit to existing projects.
