Clearance requirements

1. Circulation of explosives in subclasses 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.5 and 1.6.
Safety Distances are calculated according to the formula D = kx Qn where







D =


Safety distance in meters.



k =


A constant whose value depends on the explosive properties of the substance and nature of the damage threatened object.



Q =


Nette Explosive Substance Amount in kg.



n =



One factor whose value depends on the explosive properties.





Because of the danger of drafts and projection of fragments, the safety distance not less than the minimum distance Dmin. This value also depends on the explosive properties and type of harm endangered object.
It is thus the highest of the values ​​Dmin and D to be applied.
The values ​​of k, Q, n and Dmin provided in Tables 1-3.
When mixed warehouses must distance for the most dangerous division applied to the total amount.
Two warehouses with different types of explosives is considered detached when the spacing corresponds to the safety distance between two editions of the most dangerous type.

2. Circulation of explosives of Division 1.4.
Stockpile of more than 10 tonnes net explosive quantity should be in a minimum distance of 25 meters from property lines and vejmidte.
Stockpile of over 10 tonnes net explosive quantity should be in a minimum distance of 50 meters from property lines and vejmidte.
Circulation must be positioned relative to other objects to which set rules on minimum distances to property lines, the spacing corresponds to the sum of the distances they would each have to boundary.
