Design & Construction Of Jet Blast Walls

Blastwall engineers both fiberglass and steel jet blast walls for the protection of buildings, navigation equipment, vehicle traffic and ground personnel for airports around the world. 

Blastwall Fiberglass is a patented blast deflector product engineered in Canada and installed at airports around the world. The unique all-fiberglass structure creates no radar image and requires virtually no maintenance.

Blastwall solves technical challenges at airports with some of the most demanding requirements, where competing products fall short.




Blast wall fiberglass jet blast deflector wall provides many key advantages over traditional airport wall structures made of steel:

NO RUNWAY CLOSURES: Installation is by work crews without need for cranes that will block access to landing paths.

NO CORROSION: The all-fiberglass structure, plating, girders and bolts offer virtually an indefinite operational lifetime with almost zero maintenance over many years.

ZERO RADAR FOOTPRINTS: The performance of ground radar and radio beacons is not affected since Blast wall’s frame and plating contain no steel components.

MINIMUM SITE PREPARATION: Leveling and placement of concrete mounting points with steel bolts at ground level is the only site preparation required.

MOVABLE BLASTWALL OPTION: We are also innovators for movable jet blast walls in unique circumstances where repositionable blast protection is needed.



Blastwall designs and fabricates both steel and radar-invisible fiberglass jet blast walls for the protection of buildings, navigation equipment, vehicle traffic and ground personnel for airports around the world.

The initial development of Blastwall Fiberglass, the unique radar invisible jet blast deflector fence, was the result of a patented system developed and brought to market by the company’s co-founder, the late Mark Selkirk, a noted Canadian entrepreneur in fiberglass technology applications.

The first airport deployment was a project undertaken in 1998 between Blastwall Ltd., the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) and NAV Canada.

In the years since that first installation, Blastwall has engineered airport jet protection wall installations in many challenging locations and circumstances. We invite you to view photographic galleries of five notable installations and learn about both the steel and radar-invisible fiberglass versions of our product, as well as our new movable/repositionable wall options.

Blastwall deflector fence continues to be engineered in Toronto and manufactured in both Canada and the USA.
