Blast Rated Doors & Stair Systems

Blast Resistant Protective Doors

Blast-rated doors are heavy and are often the most talked about “pain point” for people who occupy BRMs. Having thousands of blast-resistant doors in operation, Hallwood Modular sought to find the most maintenance-free and lightest weight rated door.
Blast-resistant doors are often the most used component on blast-resistant buildings. After sourcing thousands of blast-rated doors from a variety of companies from both the US and the United Kingdom over the last two decades, Hallwood Modular, along with Ares Doors set out to design a better blast door system.
As the exclusive distributor for Ares Doors & Safety, LLC, Hallwood Modular is pleased to announce a new addition to its blast-rated door offering.
Historically, the standard blast rating in the chemical and refining industry has been 8PSI, 200ms. As Hallwood Modular expanded its fleet of modules to higher ratings, it required similar rating blast doors.
Hallwood Modular and Ares Doors & Safety, LLC have worked together to design, engineer, and make available 8, 10, and 12PSI blast-rated doors.
These blast-resistant doors are available for sale for new modules or, having the exact dimensions, can be used as door replacements.

Blast Resistant Stair Systems

Blast-rated buildings exist to protect people from explosions.  To the occupants on the second floor of a BRM complex, what happens following the blast?  If someone is on the second story, will they be able to exit the building?
The industry traditionally uses stair scaffolding to access the second floor for temporary applications. However, stair scaffolding is not designed to withstand a blast.

Hallwood Modular designed and engineered a Blast-Resistant Stair System to mitigate this risk that is:

Faq's

Yes. Doors may have various blast ratings but Hallwood Modular has always used a standard door dimensions of 84 inches (7 feet) in length and 36 inches (3 feet) in width.

Hallwood Modular is the exclusive distributor for Ares Doors and Safety, LLC.

After a blast, non-rated stairs or scaffolding will likely be inoperable. This may create a hazard for occupants on a second floor or prevent ingress/egress to or from the BRM.

Turnaround Planners and Managers have attempted to drive efficiencies through operating workforces off-site, which are later proven to be less efficient, riskier for personnel, and caused costly delays in the project.
