How much do the products weigh?
This can vary based on the number of core layers of energy absorbing material required to mitigate the threat posed by a particular application. The most common Blast Control Barrier design utilized in industrial applications contains 4 core layers and weighs about three quarters of a pound per square foot. This is much lighter than the weight of 1/4″ plate at over ten pounds per square foot. To illustrate, an 8′ x 8′ blanket would weigh approximately 50 lbs, while the same size steel plate would weigh in excess of 650 lbs.
