Explosion Relief Panels
As a rule, a buildup of vapors from Class 1A and 1B Flammables brings the risk of an explosion. If the internal gas pressure of a building rises to 20 psf, the explosion relief panel quickly opens to release the heat and gas outside. Our panels help minimize risks of explosions and can be added to both fire-rated and non-fire-rated buildings. They are available in bottom or top hinged.
Types of Explosion Relief Panels
We provide panels (ERPs) for explosion (deflagrating) venting. The size of these panels and their release pressure are designed based on the dimension of the building, the International Fire Code, and FM 6049 Table C-1. “Blast shafts” are available to direct deflagration relief events.
ERPs are available in an assortment of sizes.
