Also, it is possible that the heat output from an explosion may cause nearby combustible material to ignite. 6055.9–std selection of deployment locations impacts 6055.9-sts the mitigation of the effects of an explosion occurring within one as well as the convenience of using the receptacles. Blast resistant trash receptacles that meet the requirements of Specification E when subjected to internal explosions equal to or less than the force protection rating contain horizontal primary fragments and do not produce secondary fragments.
It is important, therefore, that blast resistant trash receptacles are not placed near combustible materials.

It is not in general intended to provide guidance on the protection of structures in the vicinity of where the blast resistant trash receptacles are deployed.
The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. ICS Number Code Historical Version s dox view previous versions of standard.
For example, special security concerns at high value facilities or high pedestrian count venues will require guidance concerning the deployment of blast resistant trash receptacles from security personnel familiar with that facility. The recommendations in this guide are intended to mitigate the damaging effects of fragmentation and overpressure in crowded places.
Every facility or venue has unique features associated with factors such dos demographics, location, and functions. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. This effect may cause burns to people caught within or near to the fireball. Trash receptacles in crowded places have been, and continue to be, an attractive repository for explosives.

It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
Fragments resulting from explosions create the greatest danger to people as fragments may travel several hundred meters and still have velocities that could be lethal or injurious.
