    EXPLOSION RELIEF PANEL

    U.S. Chemical Storage Explosion Relief Panels will protect your inventory and give you the confidence of taking on less risk. As a general rule, a buildup of vapors from Class 1A and 1B flammables brings the risk of an explosion. Our Explosion Relief Panels are designed to vent an explosive force, should an accident occur that causes a high internal pressure within the storage structure. If gas pressure rises, our Explosion Relief Panel will open quickly allowing the heat and gas to be released outside. Our Explosion Relief Panel is designed to react quickly at an internal pressure of 20 psf.

    Through the venting of this pressure via the explosion relief panels, you can help to minimize damages. The panels, with FM Approved release fasteners, meet ASTM-D35, ASTM-E84, ASTM-E-283 & FM Approval Standard Class Number 6049.

    Using Explosion Relief Panels in fire rated and non-fire rated buildings allows for extra protection against damages when storing highly combustible materials, such as Class 1A. Any situation that includes handling, storing or processing of flammable gases, liquids or solids carries the risk of an ignition and our Explosion Relief Panels are designed to minimize damage to inventory.

    It is your option to choose which type of Explosion Relief Panel you want for your building: Bottom or top hinged Explosion Relief Panels. Buildings use both types of panels and some only use one primary panel. Top hinged panels will close once the internal pressure has been relieved. Top hinged also allows protection from wind, rain, snow and other weathering. Furthermore, top hinged only permits for explosions to blast downwards, reducing the effects of hazard.
