Why you need PSI rating, duration, and damage response criteria when specifying a building?

It is very important that each of these criterions be defined when specifying out your blast resistant building. PSI alone is not what causes the damage to a building, the time lapse of the event has an intense impact on the damage that will be caused. The damage response criteria, in accordance with the ASCE guidelines, will determine the condition and function of the building after the specified event. Refer to our Blast/Explosion page for more details.
