What sort of a facility do you need to test a vault that big? I have a
mental picture of a big sort of wind tunnel lined with flamethrowers, with
Hugh and test team sitting outside gleefully sending blasts in all

We apparently have here a team who spend their lives blowing up power
transformers. Whoopee! Life wasn't meant to be archives boxes.

More seriously, I don't know about the US scene but here in Australia
there is a serious shortage of quantitative testing along these lines.
When you ask more detailed questions, a lot of the building standards are
based on estimates.

So, well done.

These views are mine alone. They may or may not be those of any previous

agreed, I would have signed it "Bloggs and Co and Glenn". Or whatever. But
I haven't, so I didn't.
