What is the safe distance that personnel should remain from the enclosure system?
The safety zone around a curtain system is one half of the distance between the closest two anchor points to the impact area. If a blanket is being used as a self-contained enclosure, allowances have to be made for the distance the blanket will move before it is constrained by the item being tested. Once an application is engineered we will prescribe a safety zone based on the final configuration. As an example, an 8′ long blanket would deflect no more than 4′ once the anchoring system is fully engaged.
