The company's AA425 Thermal Entrances, AA4325 OptiQ Ultra Thermal Fixed Over Project Out Window and IR501 UT (Ultra Thermal) Framing have been tested to meet Department of Defense and Interagency Security Committee/General Services Administration requirements as well as ASTM F1642 to protect building occupants from all forms of external force.

Demand for blast mitigation products, especially in government and institutional buildings, is rising. Additional thermal requirements and energy codes for buildings often call for blast mitigation products to be thermally broken. Increasing the safety of building occupants and preserving human life by protecting persons within or near a target building is a primary goal of blast mitigation. Providing the highest levels of thermal performance, Kawneer’s newly expanded range of blast mitigation products, developed and tested to stringent federal performance standards, stand ready to accomplish this objective.

Kawneer’s commitment to providing architects and glaziers the highest quality in design and innovation is further demonstrated through its comprehensive portfolio of ultra thermal, blast mitigation products, which now include a thermally broken storefront, thermally broken window and thermally broken door. Not only do these products extend beyond industry-leading thermal performance and deliver increased energy efficiency and occupant comfort, they also offer higher levels of protection for the complete building – top to bottom, inside and out.
