Top 5 Considerations for a Safety Engineer

When designing each product at TotalShield, people are our main priority. That is why we continuously look to avoid hazardous scenarios and back up all our products with tested data.   As engineering professionals, complying with a safety regimen is our...

Designing Modular Machine Enclosures

Designing Modular Machine Enclosures

At TotalShield, we are frequently asked by our customers to develop shielding enclosures for potentially dangerous operating machines. These machines have the potential to release fragments, explosive gases or pose other dangers to the operator or a bystander. That is...

How TNT Equivalent is Applied in Blast Containment

How TNT Equivalent is Applied in Blast Containment

When designing our explosion-resistant enclosures, our customers might not be able to provide all the necessary information. If that’s the case, we then use a TNT equivalent for the explosive that will be used.  This blog post will explore how we apply TNT...
