The implementation of Counter Terrorism Measures (CTM) on public and commercial buildings is becoming more important because of the increased number of terror attacks on major buildings around the world. For designers and architects, this means they must now look more closely at a building to assess the likely risk of an attack and how to mitigate against any potential threat.
Successfully implementing Counter Terrorism Measures can help to prevent serious or fatal injuries in the event of an intentional or accidental blast. As experts in this field, EYG Commercial regularly works in conjunction with major developers and their retained blast consultants to provide glazing systems that will meet the required criteria.
Although bomb proof or blast resistant windows are a relatively new product, we believe our hi-tech glazing is the best solution to prevent the pressure waves from a blast causing significant damage to an entire building and its surrounding area.
Since establishing in 1975, we have manufactured a wide range of high-security products. In recent years, we have worked extensively on Ministry of Defence projects throughout the UK – ranging from Category N to Category E classifications as laid down by Defence Estates and utilising both PVCu and aluminium systems.
Our expertise has also been utilised on the Crowne Plaza project at Terminal 4 of Heathrow airport, which had a blast requirement for the glazing to both window and curtain walling areas. To meet this need, we incorporated a 13.5mm toughened glass pane within a triple glazed unit to create a purpose-built window with a high thermal performance, which also passed the strict acoustic testing criteria imposed by a UKAS laboratory.
It doesn’t matter what the required blast criteria is for your project, our experienced in-house experts will conduct an on-site assessment to determine the most effective glazing solution. We will then advise the client, architect and blast consultants as to what our systems will achieve.
