DUCON Security

Concrete with flexibility and stability

Regarding blast mitigation DUCON Security offers various solutions of hardening vulnerable buildings and critical infrastructures. As thin protective elements with various design options DUCON can be integrated into the overall architectural concept. Protection against blast attacks can be already achieved by a 4cm layer of DUCON, embedded as a safety net into the concrete structure. Various protective measures have been executed successfully, especially in existing structures.

Also the german Fraunhofer Institute is convinced by the protection of our high performance concrete:

To protect against explosions, a considerable increase in the protective effect can be achieved with layers as thin as 4 cm, integrated into the outer wall. The bullet-resistance of buildings can be increased sustainably with DUCON.

The following resistance classes are achieved:

  • Ballistics: VPAM class PM9 (7,62mmx51 API) at 80mm thickness, PM14 (14,7mmx109 API) at 100-150mm thickness
  • Forced entry: highest class RC6 at 75 mm thickness

This ultimate performance has been shown in TV shows like Discovery Channel, Show of Natural Wonders and RTL News.
