All About Blastwall

BlastWall is a steel or radar-invisible fiberglass blast deflector fence with the structural strength to withstand jet takeoff blast. The fiberglass version remains invisible to radar and radio transmissions and is engineered to deflect a blast of 160 km/h at a safety factor of 1.5:1, yet has sufficient frangibility to collapse upon impact without major damage to aircraft or the wall.

All the components of BlastWall fiberglass, including the nuts and bolts, are made from pultruded or molded fiberglass to create a lightweight and durable structure with no metal parts. Pigment and UV stabilizers are incorporated into the fiberglass resin to make it corrosion-resistant and maintenance free.

BlastWall, made of steel or fiberglass, has been tested extensively by NAV Canada for non-interference performance during ground based and in-flight electronic signal emissions. It has been engineered to meet or exceed NAV Canada airside installation requirements and has been approved for installation in airports across Canada.

MOVABLE BLASTWALL OPTION: We are also innovators for movable jet blast walls in unique circumstances where repositionable blast protection is needed. Contact us for details about this new Blastwall feature.

Development History ofBlastwall

The initial development of Blastwall fiberglass, the unique radar invisible blast deflector fence, was the result of a patented system developed and brought to market by the company's co-founder, the late Mark Selkirk, a noted Canadian entrepreneur in fiberglass technology applications.

The first airport deployment was a project undertaken in 1998 between Blastwall Ltd., the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) and NAV Canada.

In the years since that first installation, Blastwall has engineered airport installations in many challenging locations and circumstances. We invite you to view photographic galleries of five notable installations and learn about both the steel and radar-invisible fiberglass versions of our product, as well as our new movable/repositionable wall options.

Blastwall deflector fence continues to be engineered in Toronto and manufactured in both Canada and the USA.
