Blast Resistant & Bullet Proof Buildings

Blast Resistant & Bullet Proof Buildings

In areas vulnerable to hazards — whether they’re manmade, such vapor cloud explosions, forced entries, pressure vessel ruptures, and bullet and other projectile impacts, or natural, such as earthquakes, fires, high winds, and snow — blast resistant buildings are critical for ensuring optimal safety and protection. Highly durable, these structures can provide separation between attackers and their targets, contain damage during bombings to prevent collapses, minimize hazards from broken glass and other debris, and facilitate speedy rescues and recoveries.

At Speed Space, we specialize in top-quality, prefabricated structures that can be used in a wide range of industrial and commercial settings, including the automotive, manufacturing, and petrochemical sectors, as well as distribution centers, government buildings, steel mills, and oil drilling sites. Extremely versatile, these structures are often used as labs, offices, remote instrument enclosures, access control booths, battery charging enclosures, and modular detention facilities.

Blast Resistant Building Features

All of our portable units come pre-wired and pre-fitted, and can function as long-term, independent structures. Our blast resistant modules are also highly customizable; everything from wall panels and backup systems to fixtures and flooring can be tailored to specific application needs. Various features can be integrated, including reflective glass, safety railings, gun ports, floor or roof hatches, floor mats, and roof seaming. Whether used as a stand-alone structure or installed above a tower, our modular blast resistant structures are available in seven different exterior colors, with an array of choices for interior wall coverings, floors, and window features. We also offer several external finishing options — aluminum, fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP), painted steel, PVC, and vinyl. Buildings as small as 8 feet x 8 feet to as large as 40 feet x 40 feet are available, with ceiling heights ranging from 7 to 10 feet.

Superior Blast Resistance

Available in blast overpressure capacities ranging from 5 psi to 20 psi, Speed Space’s blast resistant buildings are ideal for high-risk settings requiring ultimate protection, and our bullet proof buildings offer protection against weapons ranging from handguns to automatic assault weapons, ensuring equipment and personnel are kept safe and reliably preventing break-ins.

Our blast resistant structures meet ballistic limits under MIL-STD-622F and MIL-P-26593A military standards, and our explosion proof buildings are offered in Class Division 1 and 2, Groups A, B, C, D, E, F, and G. Our structures are also built to Uniform Building Code specifications. All electrical components are UL listed, and all wiring is per the latest edition of the National Electric Code. Speed Space’s modular blast resistant buildings also comply with all applicable rules of the Indiana Fire Prevention and Building Safety Commission.

Because these blast resistant modules come already assembled, overall price is determined at the very beginning of the process ― meaning no surprise costs later on, as is often the case with structures built from the ground up. Speed Space offers quick turnarounds, and we can often have buildings built and delivered in as little as three weeks.
