“During the initial day of construction, we conducted a meeting with the BDI Engineer to share knowledge on past blast deflector installation projects. This session proved highly beneficial for our local engineers, offering an explanation of the process and facilitating a question-and-answer session, thus providing valuable insights.”

BDI jet blast deflectors are constructed of heavy-duty, hot-dip galvanized steel. All designs are modular and can easily be relocated or reconfigured as requirements change. The most common type of jet blast deflector is BDI’s curved design, which has been the industry standard since 1957, although BDI offers many other shapes and configurations to meet the requirements of our customers, such as vertical jet blast fences and angled jet blast screens.
