The use of blast resistant windows in blast resistant design

Walls, doors and windows in blast resistant architectural design are required to be in perfect harmony, so they provide the highest level of protection to people and equipment. Windows represent the greatest risk for injuries of personnel during a blast incident. Common annealed glass windows are not capable of withstanding high pressures, and therefore are very likely to shatter, which results in the fragmentation of the glazing unit. Consequently, the shattered pieces of glass may injure personnel, and might even be lethal.
