Bomb Blast Suppression Blankets
Bomb Blast Suppression Blankets are used to suppress the blast fragmentation from an explosion that can cause damage and injuries. These blankets are particularly useful for suspect IEDs contained in packages up to briefcase size and pipe bombs. Each blanket is used in conjunction with a (supplied) ballistic collar which is placed on its edge around the suspected explosive device. The blanket is then placed over the collar and suspect device. The collar directs the force of the blast upwards into the blanket which contains most of the fragments created by the explosion. Two or more collars and blankets can be used to suppress larger size explosive devices.
The multiple layer ballistic-filler material is enclosed in a heavy duty nylon, water resistant cover which is fitted with lifting straps and clearly marked DANGER. Both blanket and collar fold into a compact, easily carried holdall bag. The blankets are available in two sizes and two levels of threat protection.
• Blanket Size A: 125 x 150 cm
• Blanket Size B: 155 x 155 cm
• Ballistic Collar: 125 x 20 cm
Threat Level Protection:
• Threat Level 1: fragment velocity 400 m/sec V50 standard
• Threat Level 2: fragment velocity 500 m/sec V50 standard
