Blast Resistant Modular Buildings

What is a Blast Resistant Modular Building?

CID Buildings is an engineered-to-order manufacturing company with the technology and experience to complete turnkey Blast-Resistant buildings and Blast Proof buildings. CID’s blast-resistant & blast proof modular buildings are able to withstand the concussive forces of blasts from explosions, extreme heat, flame, and smoke created by fires as well as excessive noise levels. This allows complete equipment protection and ensures worker safety.

What Are The Regulations Covering Blast Resistant Buildings?

The CID/Proto-type liftable building has outstanding capabilities which include GSA high and low blast requirements, DOD Charge weight I and II, and with advanced design and increased ceramic panel thicknesses, Personal-Born Improvised Explosive Device (PBIED), and Vehicle Born Improvised Explosive Device (VBIED) can be deterred. 

As a leading blast proof buildings manufacturer, we have the ability to incorporate ceramic panel performance can be enhanced with aggregate strike face inclusions. The strike face improves capabilities and defends against NIJ 0108-01, UL 752, Stanag 4569, and EN 1063 various threat levels. Custom thicknesses to defend special threats are available upon request. 

The CID/Proto-type liftable building is capable of withstanding Kinetic Energy Threats (KE) and the associated high speed fragmentation threats that are generated by Fragment Simulating Projectiles (FSP) and IED's CID's Proto-type liftable building structures can be fully assembled and operational with electronic equipment installed. CID's Mirawal® interior board finish is a two-fold intrinsically safe spall layer made to capture fragmentation from ballistic or blast occurrences. It also provides interior fire-rated capabilities to protect against any flammable emergency.

CID Buildings, leading blast resistant modular buildings manufacturer, applies specific engineering requirements to these blast resistant modular buildings. Throughout the building to ensure that these blast proof buildings will withstand specified blast criteria.
