The Scanna Blast Container is designed to protect people and property from the blast and fragmentation that occurs when a postal IED is set off.
The Container itself is manufactured from a Ballistic Fibreglass tube with a gelcoat finish. The removable inner bag is made from a fire retardant plastic with venting to keep it in place should a device be activated inside the Container. The container is constructed from a composite woven material that can withstand blast and fragments from up to 8oz of commercial explosives in a letterbomb device.
The inner bag will hold the suspect device in place allowing x-ray inspection of the device inside the bag. The bags handle loops allow easy removal of the package for further inspection in a safe location. The outer unit is fitted with rubber rings to allow the bin to be rolled to a safe area without the need to remove the package and a detachable base plate provides protection to the floor when in the upright position.
Should a suspected explosive device activate within the bin, the blast will be directed in an upward direction however the sides of the bin will contain most of the blast fragmentation. For additional protection against fragmentation damage, the blast container can be covered with a bomb blanket.
