BlastTac is owned and manufactured by Breton Industries, a company with a long history of exceptional industrial manufacturing performance. Since 1949, Breton Industries has had its manufacturing operations in Amsterdam, NY. Breton Industries is a U.S. Military Contractor and has used that military expertise in its development of the BlastTac product lines. Their long standing and renouned manufacturing reputation was another important component in selecting a proper partnership. JBS is dedicated to supplying a superior product and complete turn key solutions that require exceptional service after the sale. With BlastTac; JBS partnered with a company that not only designs and manufactures the world’s finest blast curtains and blankets but will be there to provide service and expertise long after the sale.
Industrial blast curtains are multi-layer, multi-material non-structural systems that can be used for oil and gas, mining and manufacturing operations. They are non-structural and portable, allowing reconfiguration and rapid and temporary installation for blast waves and fragment/debris containment. The curtains can also be easily supplemented with flame-resistant and flame-proof components and/or treatments.
The SB Series Product Line
Our SB Series Technology offers unmatched performance in the extreme conditions and demanding applications found on oil and gas rigs. With manifold pressures running between 15,000 – 25,000 psi ballistic protection in a blast curtain is not an option, it’s a must. That’s why all of our curtains are tested to international standards, including; ASTM, MIL Spec, NFPA and UL752. Our blankets and curtains are tested in development and then tested again and verified by the independent test lab, Chesapeake Testing in Maryland. We offer a variety of standard options as well as custom engineered designs to fit the exact need of the end user:
- 9853 Core Matrix Technology™
- 9870 Core Matrix Technology™

The SB Series is effective against deformable as well as non-deformable threats, which are actually more common and lethal than bullets. SB Series blast curtains are UL752 Certified to Level 1, 2 and Level 3 bullet resistant performance.
SB blast curtain and blankets utilize 9853/9870 Core Matrix Technology™, this structure greatly increases ballistic and fragmentation performance and can significantly reduce back-face trauma. The unidirectional ArmourCore™ 121/127 is added and is engineered for a high level of flexibility and strong performance against ballistic and fragmentation threats. Our blast curtains are lightweight and allow portable and permanent protection systems that are more effective than steel. The SB Series blast curtain is encased in 1050 deiner, U.S. Military Grade ballistic nylon. It provides extreme durability with urethane coating to provide superior waterproof protection from the elements.
Our SB Heat Series blast curtains are designed to defend against fire, heat, and arc flash in a single textile. Constructed to be truly non-flammable, it will not burn, melt, or ignite and remarkably sheds molten metal, certain chemicals, flammable liquids, and other molten substances. Even with intense heat and flame exposure, it maintains its strength and integrity and continues to protect. The SB Heat Series with patented EPIC silicone barrier is lightweight, flexible, odor resistant and shield against harsh weather conditions.
