From a large Los Angeles Agency: "... the safes have worked well so far. 3- deployments on the Tac-Cat no flames and one hand held delivery landed on a bed mattress no fire."
History has shown that the tactical community needs a better system for delivering Non-lethal pyrotechnic chemical agents when confronted with barricaded suspects. By their very nature pyrotechnic Non-lethal chemical agents can burn in excess of 1000 degrees and constitute an extreme fire hazard. A system is needed which would minimize the chance of starting fires. Through the development of the Burn Safe and Gas Rain, heavy concentrations of pyrotechnic Non-lethal chemical agents can be delivered efficiently with minimal probability of starting a fire. Both the BurnSafe™ and GasRam™ are multi-purpose tools. They enable tactical teams various ways to deal with barricaded suspects by delivering Non-lethal chemical agents into hardened structures. The systems are designed so that a delivery team can deploy the tools into the structure with minimal risk of starting a fire. The effectiveness of pyrotechnic CS over liquid or dry powder delivery systems has been proven historically. Pyrotechnic CS has effectively denied access to and forced individuals from fortified structures. Liquid and powder barricade penetrating projectiles have proven to be less effective in maintaining airborne persistency. They are potentially dangerous due to the ballistic capability of the projectile which could strike a suspect. The frangible projectiles often deploy their contents into drapes, furniture or embed into walls; thereby decreasing their effectiveness. The BurnSafe™ and GasRam™ provide an effective alternative to the launchable 37 & 40mm projectiles.
The Burn Safe is a double walled container constructed of aluminum. It is designed to contain the flames inside the inner chamber thereby reducing the probability of starting a fire. The Burn Safe weighs approximately 8 pounds and can easily be deployed by one tactical officer. The weight allows the user to successfully penetrate windows, screens, and glass doors. The BurnSafe™ allows the introduction of significant amounts of pyrotechnic Non-lethal chemical agent into the target, which increases the probability of a successful resolution. The use of pyrotechnic agents has been proven to be a more effective non-lethal method of penetrating a fortified structure. The use of the BurnSafe™ will increase your team’s effectiveness and provide you with an alternative delivery system.
