Rapid ‘lift & shift’ completed of Blast Resistant Dynatowers
Date published: 8th July 2016
Dynasystems have supplied and installed concrete pedestals to raise the height of four previously installed 7 meter Dynatower watch towers in an embassy complex in the Middle East.
Dynatowers are constructed from precast modular units – enabling rapid relocation or redesign. This flexible design allows for the Dynatower to be built in a range of heights and configurations.
Dynasystems Dynatowers incorporate innovative force protection designs including specialist high grade concrete, energy-absorbing systems along with blast & ballistic resistant windows. This allows Dynatowers to withstand blasts to a much higher standard compared with other conventionally designed towers.
“The expedited completion of the project was critical to meeting mission requirements. As with many Dynasystems products, the Dynatowers are modular, allowing for their rapid re-location. This allows for cost-effective deployment and saves clients’ money - a major consideration in the procurement of such items.” said Paul Gaston, Managing Director, Dynasystems.

The Dynatower is a blast and ballistic resistant watch tower constructed from precast modular units, each with its own characteristics. The modular tower can be installed quickly and redeployed for use in different operations and applications, offering turn-key solutions for advanced perimeter security. The blast resistant Dynatower incorporates innovative force protection systems and technologies such as high-grade proprietary concrete mixtures, energy-diverting shapes, energy-absorbing blast-resistant windows and secure surveillance and health systems.
The basic Dynatower can be upgraded with the addition of a variety of equipment such as machine gun mounts, firing ports and air-conditioning units. Rooftop access allows for the installation of other equipment such as automated machine gun mounts, long range scanning devices and networked communications equipment.
Dynatowers have undergone continuous testing and development in live fire exercises to ensure its reliability and personnel safety. These tests have been conducted in accordance with the standards, methods and practices approved by NATO, US Government’s Technical Support Working Group and the UK Ministry of Defence.
