BlastTac® FireMax® SB72FM Fireproof Blast Curtains Customized for Oil Rigs

BlastTac® introduces the all new SB72FM Series of fireproof curtains and blankets customized for oil rigs. BlastTac in partnership with CarbonX®, a leading provider of flame-resistant (FR) fabric, has created FireMax– all new leading technology in fireproof protection, durability and heat transfer prevention. FireMax is applicable to each of the seven series across the BlastTac line, including the SB Series.

The SB72FM Series will survive fire, ballistics, high-speed frag, heat and arc flash using a single blast curtain. The SB Series is also applicable to a variety of extreme oil and gas applications including: high pressure blasts, ballistics, frag, fire and arc flash. SB72FM fireproof curtains and blankets are re-usable even after direct flame and extreme heat exposure.

FireMax 777 custom woven fabric is truly non-flammable as it will not burn, melt, or ignite. It also remarkably sheds molten metal, certain chemicals, flammable liquids and other molten substances. The patented EPIC encapsulation provides for a breathable and water resistant fabric, which is also suitable for harsh weather conditions. Similarly, FireMax material is lightweight, extremely durable, flexible and odor resistant. For fire protection alone, FireMax now offers its own line of FM Series thermal blankets and curtains, including our new FM77RC made exclusively for the oil and gas industry.

Ballistic Protection

The SB72FM Series is UL 752 tested to level 2+ in bullet resistance and .22 Cal., 17GR FSP V12 and 2-Grain RCC frag protection. Using 9853 Core Matrix® technology, the SB Series significantly reduces back-face trauma and absorbs the impact of ballistics and fragmentation. Core Matrix technology also eliminates the need for layer counting, quilting and lamination. Coupled with ArmourCore® 121 technology, it is effective against deformable and non-deformable threats, which are more common and lethal than bullets.

BlastTac® offers a variety of standard features and custom engineered designs. We engineer the BlastTac line with U.S. Military grade materials and is manufactured at Breton Industries. Breton Industries is a leading U.S. Military Contractor established in 1949 and located in Amsterdam, NY.

BlastTac® bulletproof curtains and blankets are designed to meet the demanding safety standards of a variety of applications. The BlastTac® line consists of seven different series including: AB, CB, SB, MB, FM, XB and PB.

BlastTac designed the AB Series for use in the aerospace industry. The AB Series is UL752 certified to levels 1, 2 and 3 in bullet resistance. We engineer AB Series bulletproof curtains and blankets with ArmourCore™ 132 technology for advanced protection against blast, ballistics and high-speed frag. In addition, Core Matrix Technology™ eliminates the need for layer counting, quilting and lamination.

BlastTac’s CB Series commercial and industrial blast curtains and blast blankets are effective against both deformable and non-deformable threats. CB Series bulletproof curtains and blankets use 9865 Matrix Technology™ and Unidirectional ArmourCore™ 121 technology to absorb the impact of bullets and fragmentation while significantly reducing back-face trauma. Similarly, the 1050 deiner, U.S. Military Grade ballistic nylon is durable and suitable for waterproof protection. They are lightweight, flexible and odor resistant.

For blast protection in the gas and oil industry, BlastTac created the SB Series. With manifold pressures running between 15,000 – 25,000 psi, the SB Series uses ArmourCore™ 127 for increased protection against ballistic and fragmentation threats. SB Series bulletproof curtains and blankets test to UL752 levels 1, 2 and 3 in bullet resistance.

We designed the MB Series as a result of increased threats of terrorism, shootings, IED’s and explosives affecting our police and military personnel. MB Series bulletproof curtains and blankets are Berry Amendment Compliant. They are also military grade and UL752 Certified to levels 2 and 3 in bullet resistance. The MB Series uses 9865 Matrix technology™ which significantly reduces back-face trauma.
