Bomb Blanket & Safety Circle
The SDS advanced bomb suppression blanket and extended Safety Circle is a cost-effective solution of suppressing the blast and fragmentation of an improvised explosive device (IED) should a detonation occur.
It is a very quick, simple yet highly effective way to help protect people and property at risk should the item detonate. Once the suspect device has been identified the extended circle is placed around the item without touching it, then the suppression blanket is placed over the device and the circle thus making the area a little safer while the bomb disposal team are on route.
The SDS bomb blanket & safety circle is currently in service with numerous government departments and by private organisations offices and post rooms. Private companies have realised the added protection the bomb blanket & safety circle affords by minimising the impact on their business should a suspect device be located in their offices. The key to the success of the bomb blanket & safety circle is simplicity, with such straightforward operation, it can be used by trained security personnel or untrained staff members if the need arises.
