Bomb Blast Suppression Blanket
The Bomb Blast Suppression Blanket is used to suppress and contain the blast and fragmentation from explosive threats, such as an Improvised Explosive Device (IED).
This lightweight and easily portable blanket works in conjunction with a ballistic containment ring for mitigating IEDs containing relatively smaller charges.
Use of the Blast Blanket is a first response option for mitigating threats in public places such as airports and public transit stations until a Bomb Disposal or EOD team arrive on scene and can take further action.
The system includes lifting straps and a Ballistic Collar which is placed on its edge around the suspicious item. The Blanket is then placed over the Collar and suspicious item. The Collar directs the force of the explosive blast upwards into the Blanket which is designed to help contain fragments from an explosion.
- Two or more Collars and Blast Blankets can be used to suppress a larger size item
- Multiple layer ballistic filler material enclosed in a heavy duty nylon
- Fitted with lifting straps
- Both Blanket and Collar fold into a carry bag
