DCU 105 / 212

A carrier Unit for long lead wires. This unit is above all. robust and lightweight and it enables the safe transportation of single packs of detonators.

-Contains blast and secondary fragments, which most importantly, protect personnel when carried by hand.

-Enables detonators and explosives to be stored and transported in the same vehicle.

-Improves logistical options and moreover, significantly reduces transport costs

-Suitable for belt and rucksack transport

-RF Screening and anti-static protection

Detonator Carrier Unit : DCU 500 Series

The Detonator Containment Unit DCU500 Series reduces the hazard classification and compatibility group from 1.1B to 1.4S. Consequently this improves safety of personnel when storing and transporting electric and non-electric detonators. The DCU500 Series are widely used by demining companies, most notably, NATO and EOD Teams in the UK (Army, Navy and RAF) and Europe.

  • Contains blast & secondary fragments, and as a result, protects personnel when carried by hand.
  • Prevents sympathetic detonation.
  • Enables detonators & explosives to be stored/transported in same vehicle.
  • Improves logistical options and therefore, significantly reducing transport costs.
  • Comes in various formats so consequently, suits most standard types of detonators.

Detonator Carrier Unit : DCU 1000

The Detonator Containment Unit DCU1000 provides blast protection to personnel when storing, handling and transporting bulk quantities of electric & non-electric detonators. As a result, the DCU1000 reduces the UN Hazard Classification and compatibility group from 1.1B to 1.4S. Consequently, making it compliant with road and air transportation regulations hence enabling cost effective logistical options.

  • Certified with UN Hazard Classification 1.4S – therefore making it compliant with road & air transport regulations
  • Most importantly, it prevents sympathetic detonation
  • Contains blast & secondary fragments which above all, protects nearby personnel
  • Enables detonators and explosives to be stored & transported in same vehicle therefore improving logistical options and in addition, significantly reduces transport costs
  • Furthermore, the DCU1000 suits most standard types of detonators

AMT Det Pouch

 The AMT Det Pouch completely contains blast pressure waves and fragmentation, thus protecting personnel.

Designed for use in AMT (Advanced Manual Techniques) and manual render safe applications the small and lightweight Mini Det Pouch enables personnel to carry a single electric or non-electric detonator with complete safety. Due to having SABREMATTM technology, the AMT Mini Det Pouch protects personnel against fragmentation, blast effects and detonation transmission, whilst on operations. The AMT Mini Det pouch is best carried in waist belt webbing bandolier (4 units), and to clarify, these can be supplied upon request. 

  • Most importantly they enable detonators to be safely carried in theatre
  • Light weight and in addition, simple to use
  • Multiple AMT Mini’s can be carried in belt webbing pouches
  • Furthermore, these can be used with electric or non-electric detonators.
  • Robust hard-wearing units which most importantly have, non-conductive coating.

AMT Mini Det Pouch

This pouch was tested with a No.8 electric detonator initiated inside the chamber with no fragmentation or external blast effect being produced. In addition, to simulate de-mining activity, the unit has also been tested with a No.8 electric detonator together with 0.5 grams of C4 adhered to it. In conclusion, no fragmentation or external blast effects resulted.
