New Must Have Technology if You Live Under Constant Rocket Barrage
A new Israeli innovation is set to make it possible to turn any room in the house into a fortified space and offer thousands of Israelis who until now, could not build a fortified space within their homes due to technical difficulties, the option of doing so.
The “instant fortified space” was developed by G.G. Defense Systems and offers the chosen room protection through a shell of three steel plates each of which is 6 centimeters (2.3 inches) thick and attached to the walls.
If a missile were to hit the area near the residence, the steel plates absorb most of the explosion. According to developers, it is possible to install the protection system in no more than seven days and it provides protection for the room’s doors and windows too.
On Wednesday, the company in cooperation with the Home Front Command, held a decisive test for the system which was supposed to provide the final seal of approval. At the test site, somewhere in the middle of the desert, a two floor building was constructed and the new innovation was installed.
A large explosion went off in the middle of the day in a bid to simulate a powerful ballistic missile attack near the building. When the smoke cleared, the company’s engineers rushed to the scene to examine the walls’ durability. They all let out a sigh of relief when they realized – the test was a complete success.
