Military Barracks and Headquarters Buildings
Nothing can make military barracks 100% resistant
to all forms of attack but Defence-Structures
buildings are safer and will save lives. Casualties are caused by
incoming weapons and their fragmentation; and by flying glass and bits
of structure; but the most dangerous and devastating tragedies have
occurred with the collapse of masonry buildings.
military buildings and barracks, with composite deck floors lightly
built on joists and beams, rigidly fixed to the columns resist the
effect of blast (and seismic and hurricane load). The sheeting can be
frangible (that is, will bend, deflect, wrap around its supporting
steel) but not fall to bits and fly around. Windows can self-open, and
have polycarbonate glazing. Blast resistant windows utilising Laminate
can also be fitted. Even normal glass can be improved with filming.
Where blast resisting glass is used it must be held in place with steel
mullions and transoms fixed strongly to defence-structures frames and
designed to bend plastically without fracturing.

Of course such defence structures will also be
safer with Defence-Structures Mortar Roofs, Rocket Screens, Blast Walls, Cover From View Screens
and Double Lock Blast Gates
