Advanced Insulation’s ContraBlast® blast resistant insulation and passive fire protetion provides a robust lightweight solution for both the offshore and onshore oil and gas industry.
ContraBlast® panels are constructed using Advanced Insulation’s award winning MS400 lightweight phenolic foam material encapsulated by a purposely designed multi-layer resin infused laminate. The individual panels are joined using tongue and groove joints to form a sealed blast and fire resistant wall system which is mechanically fixed to supporting steelwork either directly or via a metallic hinge. Advanced Insulation’s ContraBlast® Lightweight Blast & Fire Wall Protection provides a robust light-weight solution for passive fire protection, thermal and blast protection.
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.
Different ContraBlast® systems are available depending on your specific requirement but the typical applications are the following:
- Packaged LERs (local equipment rooms)
- E-houses (electrical houses)
- Data Rooms
- Escape Tunnels on topsides structures to provide H60/60 protection
- Stair towers
