After Affects of a Bomb Blast
impact of a bomb blast accounts for 20% of the injuries sustained
by people. Fully 80% of the fatal and near fatal injuries sustained
by people results from the flying razor sharp shards of glass,
known in the industry as “spalling”. DWS products, applications
and systems are designed to minimize the injuries that result
Eliminate Glass Fragments
windows break and shatter, razor sharp shards of flying glass
can cause death, serious injury and property damage. In fact,
flying glass is the leading source of injuries from explosions
involving buildings in urban areas. DWS provided Laminated Glass,
Glass Clad Polycarbonate, Acrylic and Polycarbonate manufactured
windows and other applications and systems will eliminate injuries
caused by flying glass shards. By altering thickness and composition
such “glass” can be customized to specific threat level requirements
products can be manufactured to meet many customer required
Protection Levels. They generally fall into four categories
for ballistic levels.
Glass Clad Polycarbonate
Bullet Resistant Doors
Bullet-Resistant door and frame assemblies are
pre-hung with Roton Heavy Duty continuous hinges and are available
in Protection Levels I-IV. Frames are available in wrap, butt,
and split designs and are designed to the same protection level
as the doors. Doors are available in steel, aluminum, and wood
in a variety of configurations. Wood doors are available in
all styles and faced with any type of wood or high pressure
laminated plastic veneer.
Bullet / Blast
and exterior bullet and/or blast resistant windows are manufactured
in a number of styles, sizes and configurations. For interior
applications where aesthetics are a concern, wood veneer or
Corian finishes add to the presentation of the windows. Exterior
window units incorporate stainless steel frames with the appropriate
“glass” to meet any bullet resistant UL Protection Level and/or
any forced entry and detection H.P. White Protection Level that
may be required by the client.
steel plate, bullet-resistant Kevlar and flame retardant walls,
our safe rooms provide unsurpassed protection against any potential
threat. Separate plumbing units and secure ventilation system
provides an extra level of safety. Installed wire and wireless
phones, walkie-talkies and closed circuit TV ensure you'll never
be out of touch. Whether it's building a dedicated safe room
or fortifying an existing room, our ballistics specialists and
craftsmen will design, manufacture, install and finish an impenetrable
unit that maintains the aesthetics of any home or business.
Vehicle Glass Laminate
and Glass Clad Transparency Barriers
laminate and Glass Clad transparency barriers can be shaped
to fit OEM specs for windshields and other curved surfaces.
Visual product clarity with superior attack and ballistics
protection is achieved through advanced manufacturing techniques,
mitigating the affects of spalling-the spray of glass fragments
into a vehicle at impact. DWS will offer a full line of “low
spall” and “no-spall” barriers for many applications and/or
Data Center Safety & Security
DWS and its
Partners will evaluate and assess the safety and security needs
of existing and/or newly planned Data Centers, and design, develop,
manufacture and install appropriate safety and security applications
and systems to meet the Protection Level required by the client.
The DWS solution will include products to provide bullet and
blast resistant protection and mitigate forced entry threats.
As may be required by clients, DWS will assess cable plant installed
in Data Centers to determine the need to install limited combustible
data communication cable to minimize loss in the event of a
Clad Ballistic Systems
ballistic systems are designed to be architecturally pleasing
yet secure enough to resist any perceived threat level. To
assure that the desired client Protection Level is achieved
the design of Wood Clad Ballistic Systems should occur very
early into the architectural design phase of construction.
With respect to renovation of existing facilities, DWS and
its Partners will work the client from the concept phase,
to the completed design phase to assure client satisfaction.
DWS will then proceed to develop the appropriate system products
and install the system.
booths provided by DWS Partners are built to exceed industry-standard
design requirements for structural safety and bullet resistance.
The designs of booths provide up to UL Level 8 bullet resistance,
which is the highest security level available. The DWS Partners
have extensive experience working with bullet-resistant structures
and materials, combined with unparalleled installation expertise.
The qualifications of the DWS team and their commitment to
quality will ensure that client specific applications and
systems will meet or exceed client expectations. A wide variety
of styles and sizes can be custom fabricated to meet client
specific requirements and specifications.
Barrier systems are custom manufactured to suit any particular
application and are available in UL Level 1 utilizing 1 1/4(mm)
Acrylic and UL Level 3 utilizing 1 1/4(mm) Polycarbonate.
These systems can be designed, developed, manufactured and
installed at the client location by DWS and its Partners and/or
shipped "Flat Packed" to the client location with
all necessary hardware and instructions for client installation.
Bullet Resistant Wall Systems
and builds bullet-resistant walls systems for a wide range of
situations including government installations, banking facilities,
medical institutions, monetary distribution centers and corporate
offices requiring data, petty cash or payroll protection. Utilizing
only UL-certified ballistic components, which are integrated
with wood, aluminum, and stainless steel products, provides
DWS with the ability to create and design bullet-resistant,
yet architecturally and aesthetically pleasing, wall systems.
