Resisting Attack: Building Ballistic and Blast & Forced Entry Protection

Resisting Attack: Building Ballistic and Blast & Forced Entry Protection

In this one-hour course, design professionals will learn about blast and ballistic resistant technology developed to provide comprehensive life, asset and building protection. In delving into this topic, standards and testing criteria will be explored as well as reviewing the security products and materials designed for security purposes. By the end of this course, design professionals will be able to apply their newly acquired knowledge of blast and ballistic products for specification in a myriad of upcoming projects.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Evaluate the variety of innovative resistance technologies that are used to protect occupants and assets from threats including blast and ballistic assault
  2. Explore the standards organizations that create the criteria and testing for resistance technologies to determine the successfulness of these products protecting life and securing a building in the event of blast or ballistic attack
  3. Analyze panels, windows, doors & related physical security products engineered to provide durability and safety against threats to life, buildings and assets
  4. Apply knowledge of anti-ballistic technology through case studies that highlight products that protect and provide comprehensive security
