Temet Blast Protection and CBRN Filtration Systems for Critical infrastructure and Civil Defense Shelters
Temet is a world-leader in blast protection and chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) filtration systems for protecting critical infrastructure and Civil Defense Shelters.
In modern reality, wars and conflicts are often conducted far from the borders and the front line is deep in the Home Front, targeting civilians and critical infrastructures. This Home Front is vulnerable not only to war scenarios, but also to terror, natural disasters, industrial accidents, and others.
Analysts believe that a dirty bomb terror event will cause more casualties by the panic around it, hence the relevant critical infrastructure and command centers must continue operations.
Temet has supplied thousands of shelter projects worldwide, protecting power stations, hospitals, command and control centers, data centers, as well as numerous Civil Defense shelters in Metro stations, schools, and apartment buildings.
Our extensive product portfolio includes the full range of sheltering and blast mitigation equipment such as blast-proof valves, doors and hatches, as well as CBRN filtration and CO2 removal systems, and complete shelter design and construction.
Customisation is welcomed.
Hardened shelter technology
A comprehensive shelter design should consider the threat and blast analysis, the purpose of the shelter in both normal and emergency times, its contingency and survivability requirements, and its habitants and the length of stay.
Traditional shelters should include a blast protection perimeter, as well as a gastight and an over-pressurised toxic-free area with CBRN filtration system. With modern threats, a shelter may also require many other features, including a CO2 removal system for an extended stay, electromagnetic pulse (EMP) protection, and/or automation and integration into a building management system.
Blast protection valves and doors
Temet produces advanced solutions designed for blast-resistant situations.
We have a large variety of valves, including blast valves, overpressure valves, closing valves (gas-tight shut-off valves), cable transmission sleeves, and others in many models and sizes and blast protection ranging up to 100 bar.
Our large variety of blast-protected doors and hatches includes standard single or double-leaf doors and hatches, sliding / lifting doors, and others in sizes varying from standard to extra-large ammunition storage doors, as well as blast rating up to more than 300 bar.
We also offer a variety of options, such as motorised and remote-controlled doors, special hinges for everyday manual use, a locking mechanism, and more.
CBRN filtration and CO2 removal systems
In emergency situations, when the outside air may be highly contaminated with unknown or detected CBRN agents, it is critical to keep the shelter contaminant-free.
Temet’s CBRN filtration systems are tested, certified, and proven to filter CBRN\TIC agents while introducing fresh and clean air to the shelter.
In some cases, when a complete sealing of the shelter is required, the oxygen will run out and the CO2 level will rise to dangerous levels.
Temet’s engineers have developed a unique regenerative CO2 removal system for large shelters for long-term operation and protection with an optional O2 supply system.
Shock and vibration isolation technology
Temet provides comprehensive ground shock isolator systems designed for use with equipment installed in applications where they are susceptible to shock loads. Temet’s ground shock isolators are ideal for protecting mechanical and electrical installations.
Industrial blast protection solutions
Blast protection in critical industrial environments is essential. The purpose of the blast protective equipment is to protect people and important assets in the event of a blast and prevent the escalation of a minor explosion into a serious event.
Temet’s advanced and cost-effective blast protection solutions are installed in many industrial and nuclear facilities to contain an explosion, protect critical infrastructures and human lives. In many critical infrastructure, facilities such as command and control centres are built as a full shelter to allow continuous operation under any circumstances.
Founded in 1953, Temet has been the leader in the Finnish market since the first Finnish Civil Defense Shelters regulations. Today, Temet is a world-leader in blast protection and chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) filtration systems for protecting critical infrastructure and Civil Defense Shelters.
The company is committed for Saving Lives, hence our solutions are certified as well as field-proven, innovative, and made to last for decades. This commitment is at the centre of our customer-based approach from design and customisation, through installation, to commissioning and training.
Temet constantly invests in its R&D and engineering capabilities, production capacity and automation for fast and high quality deliveries, and quality assurance and management systems, in order to provide its clients and partners some of the most fail-proof solutions on the market.
