Protective Construction

Protective Construction

High performance physical security solutions
The current threat from terrorist and criminal attack remains real and serious. Enhanced building protection to help reduce consequential loss from forced manual entry and attack, particularly from vehicle borne improvised explosive devices (VBIEDs), is increasingly specified for high profile buildings.

Protection against blast has become a requirement for many existing and new structures, especially those where stand-off distance between the building and the site perimeter is limited. SYSTRA’s composite panel system has been specifically developed to provide structural solutions with inherent blast resistance, making it ideal for use in protective construction projects.
