Stone Security Engineering is thrilled to present a great new tool for design teams and security personnel who work on DoD projects incorporating the requirements of the updated UFC 4-010-01 DoD Minimum Antiterrorism Standards for Buildings.

iStandoff  is a free iPad App that has been designed to quickly and easily identify Conventional Construction standoff distances, per the UFC 4-010-01 DoD Minimum Antiterrorism Standards for Buildings, dated February 9, 2012.

Background

As mentioned in the April edition of this Industry Briefing, the Conventional Construction standoff distances “now depend not only on the required level of protection, but also on the exterior envelope construction type, and structural function (load bearing vs. non-load bearing.

In order to determine the project specific Conventional Construction two tables (Table B-1 and Table B-2) need to be cross-consulted. (The table shown in the application is a reproduction of Table B-1: Standoff Distances for New and Existing Buildings from the UFC document).

The App

This Application automates the process of determining Conventional Construction standoff distances and provide the applicable distances with two taps of the screen.

Additional Services

Note that all wall types are not included in the tables in the UFC document.  If your project has construction configurations not covered, Stone Security Engineering provides design services that will assist you in determining the requirements for your specific situation.   Contact us at Info@StoneSecurityEngineering.com or at +1(646) 649-3169.
