Performance of Protective Doors and Windows under Impact and Explosive Loads
Experimental bullet-proof investigations for two types of steel protective doors under comparative perforation tests using various bullets shot from short and long typical fire-arms are presented. Protective windows are tested under soft impact of 30 kg mass and under aerial shock wave from explosion of an explosive blowing charge (aluminum cash desk windows) and a fuel-air mixture (steel protective windows of warship). The structural material of door leaves used is Polish standard building steel, while the window leaves - Polish architectural protective glass of P4A class in cash desk windows and duplex hardened glass in warship windows.
