FE/BR (Forced Entry/Ballistic Resistance)



ASAP Walls, Inc. provided one wall system to Chesapeake Testing Services, Inc. (CTS) for Forced Entry/Ballistic Resistance (FE/BR) testing on 21 March 2016. All testing was conducted in accordance with (IAW) SD-STD-01.01 Revision G (Amended), dated 30 April 1993.


Ballistic Threats and Results


  • 7.62 x 51-mm, 149-grain M80 full metal jacketed (FMJ) projectiles.
  • 5.56 x 45-mm, 55-grain M193 ball projectiles.
  • 5.56 x 45-mm, 62-grain M855 ball projectiles.


Shots were placed on the wall system at various impact locations and at various obliquities. There was no penetration at all.

Forced Entry Testing


The sample that was used for ballistic testing was subsequently used for forced entry testing. Four 15-minute concentrated assaults were conducted on the test sample by 6 men and an assault supervisor.
For all testing, the sample was welded into a custom-built test fixture that was in accordance with the referenced performance standard. A platform was constructed so that the attackers were standing on the same plane as the bottom of the wall system.


The objective of each of the four concentrated assaults was to attempt to create an opening in the wall system such that either a 12.00 x 12.00 x 8.00 in rigid rectangular shape or a 12.00 x 12.00 in rigid cylindrical shape could be passed through the opening, IAW the referenced performance standard. The following locations were assaulted during this test series:


  • Center of opaque area on the right wall panel.
  • Right edge of the wall panel system.
  • Bottom left edge of the wall panel system.
  • Center seam between wall panels.


The attack team was not able to pass the Rigid Rectangle or Rigid Cylinder through any openings created during this test series.
