Beirut explosion 4th August 2020.


On August 4th 2020, a major explosion in the port of Beirut estimated as the equivalent of between 1,000 and 1,500 tonnes of TNT was witnessed. The explosion in Beirut was one of the largest man-made non-nuclear explosions ever witnessed and created widespread devastation through a supersonic blast wave radiating throughout the city.


Fortunately for some, Abbey Protect ๐—ฆ๐—˜๐—–๐—จ๐—ฅ๐—”๐—•๐—Ÿ๐—œ๐—ก๐——๐—ฆยฎ were fitted to a number of windows throughout Beirut. While these were originally fitted as counter terrorism measures, the benefits of having these installed were clear.


In one building, the difference in protection between โ€œbomb blast window filmโ€ and ๐—ฆ๐—˜๐—–๐—จ๐—ฅ๐—”๐—•๐—Ÿ๐—œ๐—ก๐——๐—ฆยฎ where the blast filmed windows had significantly fragmented and caused damage to the interior offices. The offices fitted with ๐—ฆ๐—˜๐—–๐—จ๐—ฅ๐—”๐—•๐—Ÿ๐—œ๐—ก๐——๐—ฆยฎ โ€œit looked as if nothing had happenedโ€ (quote from client).


๐—”๐—ฏ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐˜† ๐—ฃ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐˜ are very proud of the performance of our blinds in this significant event, the injuries and deaths that were avoided as a result of their installation are priceless.
