WHAT IS BOMB SUPPRESSION BLANKET AND BLAST CONTAINMENT RING ?
HOW USEFUL IS BOMB SUPPRESSION BLANKET (BSB) AND BLAST CONTAINMENT RING (BCR) ?
Bomb Suppression Blanket (BSB) and Blast Containment Ring (BCR) are suitable for use in Railway Stations, Important Trains, Airports, Bus Terminals, Post Offices, Weekly Markets, PCR Vans, Control Room in Festivals/Fairs and Theaters etc.
The Blast Containment Ring is first placed on its edge around the suspected bomb/improvised Explosive Device (IED) and the Bomb Suppression Blanket is then placed over the Blast Containment Ring and suspected bomb, while awaiting examination. This combo deters side fragmentation discharge as well as top discharge. (The Bomb Suppression Blankets are used in conjunction with the Blast Containment Ring)
Should a detonation or explosion occur, the ring directs the force of the blast upwards and the Blanket flexes and contains most of the fragments created by the
explosion, so that the damage to personnel or property in the area is considerably reduced. It provides prompt and effective method for dealing with suspected packages.
