Once reserved for military applications, the addition of blast protection and ballistic resistance is becoming increasingly commonplace in the building and construction of everyday structures and facilities. Continuous fiber reinforced composites can be incorporated into traditional building materials and processes to add a new level of security.
Where is ballistic protection needed?
Ballistic resistant materials can be used to add reinforcement to doors, walls, and portable structures in government buildings, banks, retail storefronts, schools, safe rooms, testing facilities, firing ranges, storm shelters, and utility substations.
What materials have traditionally been used for ballistic protection?
Steel, precast and shock-absorbing concrete, ceramic matrix composites, and fiber-cement composites are all commonly used materials for blast and ballistic resistance.
How do advanced composites improve ballistic protection?
Advanced composite ballistic panels offer a number of benefits over traditional materials:
