Blast Resistant Doors

Blast and pressure resistant doors protect people and property from explosions and shrapnel. More damage is generally caused by shrapnel than the blast itself, and a properly specified and engineered door can save lives. Blast doors are used in a variety of environments such as government buildings, laboratories, refineries, chemical storage, and more.

For additional information on door assemblies with blast resistant ratings, refer to the SDI's information on Blast Resistant Doors

Steelcraft Blast Resistant Assemblies meet the following Blast Test Standards:                                                               

  • UFC 4-010-01 Feb 20012  DoD Minimum Antiterrorism Standards for Buildings
  • ASTM F1642
  • GSA TS-01 Levels C & D                                                                                                                                                 

Note: The DoD and GSA have different peak pressure and impulse requirements.                                                                                                                                                                                           

Blast requirements are typically project specific and the distributor needs the following information from the structural design engineer or architect for each project and opening to ensure the correct products and level of life safety protection are provided.                                                                    

  • Peak Pressure (or Peak Overload pressure) in psi                                                                                                            
  • Impulse (Impulse Load ) in psi-mes

NOTES:

  1. Results are based on Engineering Analysis/Evaluations
  2. Door size is the nominal opening size (3070 = 3’0” x 7’0”)
  3. Glass designs are standard Steelcraft sizes and locations
  4. Lock devices:

  • Schlage L9400 Series or ND Series as noted
  • Von Duprin XP98/99 or WS98/9927 as noted
  • Falcon T-Series as noted
  • Ives hinges
Frames must be 14 gage (F14, MU14 Series)

A blast test to a particular peak pressure and impulse, qualifies a products to all blast loads levels below that test load.
