The Blast Container is a cylindrical assembly consisting of composite woven fibres, designed to withstand blast and fragments from an explosive device containing up to 500g (16 oz.) of PE4 (TNT).
The container enables the user to contain a suspect explosive device while awaiting the arrival of a bomb disposal team. The container has a marked datum point on the outside face, designed to assist the bomb disposal team in scanning and determining the threat and appropriate action required.
The exterior is fitted with two rubber rings to allow the container to be easily manoeuvred into position and each unit is coated in a highly visible day glow orange. See our testing page to view one of our bins being tested.

The main unit
A detachable base plate (optional)
