Mifram Home Ballistic Shelter (HBS)
Mifram Home Ballistic Shelter
Ballistic Shelter Against Bomb, Rocket, Mortar
Construction and installation of fortified rooms in existing apartments and homes.
The fortified room, made entirely of reinforced concrete, permanently strengthens the structure it is installed in.
During normal use, the fortified room looks exactly like one of the home’s regular rooms, it has a window, an air conditioner, telephone and more.
In an emergency, the fortified room provides effective, close at hand and immediately available protection from missiles and rockets.
In Israel, following the first Gulf War, a law was passed that required all new or extended homes and apartments to include a fortified room (as opposed to an underground shelter). This is due to the fact that early warning of a missile attack is far too short to allow for safe evacuation to a distant bomb shelter but sufficient to access a fortified room within the home. What in the past took minutes, is now possible in seconds and can be the difference between life and death!
Home Front Command has a detailed series of rules and regulations governing the construction of a fortified room. This includes the fact that the door and window of all fortified rooms must be blast and shrapnel resistant and gas proof (airtight). In addition, every fortified room must have a ventilation system and a chemical/biological filter system. It’s also possible to install air conditioners for regular and emergency use.
