Frequently Asked Questions
Q.
What is the difference between Pressure resistant and Blast resistant doors?

A.
Pressure resistance refers to a pressure load applied over a long duration (seconds, minutes, or longer), and where the pressure loading decay is removed from the door over a long duration. Blast resistance refers to a high pressure shock of very short duration (milliseconds), with pressures decaying with distance and time.

Q.
What is the difference between seated pressure and unseated pressure?

A.
Seated pressure loading acts to seat the door into the frame against the stops. Unseated pressure acts to unseat the door away from the stops where hardware is an integral part of the pressure resistance. This is an important consideration in the design of both pressure resistant and blast resistant doors and it has lead to the design of special hinges and locking devices.

Q.
What is fragmentation?

A.
Fragmentation is the result of an explosion. Fragments that are heavy and traveling at a high velocity may penetrate a door or window, depending on thickness and other characteristics. Fragmentation resistance should be considered in your specifications for a blast resistant door or window product.
