Blast-Safe® Jet-Blast and Perimeter Security Fencing

More Product Info

Blast-Safe® was originally developed for NASA to protect a launch site control tower. Today this state-of-the-art aviation safety system protects pedestrians, ground vehicles and airport facilities from dangerous jet-blast hazards from nearby aircraft.

Blast-Safe®'s 'open' structure allows jet-blast air to be safely diffused moving it up and away from the fence through the system's double-reverse corrugated (DRC) steel fabric. The system provides added safety benefits by acting as a security fence, noise attenuation barrier and glare screen as well as providing protection from airborne solid debris.

Features & Advantages

  • Smallest footprint for Vertical Fencing (< 24") allowing placement in close proximity to other structures
  • 75-80% reduction in wind speed velocity
  • Design flexibility provides tailored protection to meet your project specifications
  • Access doors, gates, lighting, barb wire attachments and other site-specific features are easily incorporated for added safety and convenience
  • Angled posts allow the fence to follow tarmac irregularities, providing a significant cost savings over other systems, which must stop or overlap when faced with changing direction.
  • Structural integrity of the framing system provides perimeter security against unwanted intrusions by vehicles or pedestrians.

Design Flexibility

Blast-Safe® comes in standard heights of 8, 10, 12 and 14 feet. The length and location of the fence is determined by project-specific operational restrictions. With a footprint of less than 24", the barrier can fit in "tight" locations, maximizing limited right-of-way space and Blast-Safe® design allows for the reduction in height in some areas keeping costs down while still providing maximum protection from jet-blast.

Transpo's Blast-Safe® Jet-Blast and Perimeter Security Fencing is renowned throughout the aviation industry for its unique design flexibility, superior performance and utmost reliability. Each system provides the maximum protection available from jet-blast for your airport assets.

Upon your request, Transpo's airfield safety engineers are available to evaluate proposed Blast-Safe® locations and prepare detailed design calculations in conjunction with your airport staff and consulting engineers.
