Arc Explosion Pressure Relief

Protect your switch room with SHX Blast Relief Vents, 100% efficient, blast tested and universally approved

The explosive nature of an electric arc has been documented in a number of case studies. The intense heat from an arc flash causes sudden expansion of air resulting in a blast and the associated pressure waves and the resulting explosions rival that of explosive substances.

Transformer Bay Protection

The AFP range of blast vents have been specifically designed and tested to vent the excess pressure in a building that can arise when an electrical fault in a transformer gas or oil cooled compartment causes a discharge into the surrounding building.

Switchgear Building Protection

The AFP Blast Simulator has been built to simulate a variety of switchgear gas cooled compartments with volumes up to 1.8m3.
