Enhanced (Blast and Ballistic resistant) Protection
RWS have an unparalleled understanding of blast and ballistic products and the ability to design a bespoke system to meet your enhanced specification requirement, including a completely confidential service.
In partnership with Schueco we offer a range of blast-resistant and ballistic-resistant façades, windows and doors – designated XR or BR. These have been developed by Schueco and refined by exhaustive research and live testing.
XR systems have been tested in line with ISO 16933, the internationally recognised standard for blast resistance.
BR systems are adapted to combat a ballistic threat up to EN 1522 and may also be specified with burglar resistance up to Class RC4 of EN1627.
The resulting specialist products provide unrivalled levels of protection and functionality, but without compromising on architectural aesthetics.
XR (explosive resistance) systems benefit from many years of experience in the market helping to protect government, military and private buildings, offering maximum protection against shock waves in the event of an explosion and manufactured and installed under the Schueco (SABRE) approval scheme for installers and fabricators.
- are approved to National Building Specifications
- provide a high level of thermal insulation and meet Document L requirements
- are tested to UK MOD guidelines and US GSA regulations
BR systems are designed to be aesthetically pleasing and unobtrusive with the increased protection that is built in.
Whether it’s a single door, window, a complete façade, or a counter, ballistic-resistant constructions appear the same as standard profiles.
- can be designed to meet FB2 to FB6 classification
- can provide a high level of thermal insulation and meet Document L requirements
RWS have a long tradition of manufacturing blast and ballistic protective systems and installing them on ‘at risk’ buildings whilst completing other building works.
Blast and Ballistic protection is a complex issue and our in-house experts have worked on a wide variety of projects throughout the world.
