Blue Force Gear’s Dual Initiator Coupler Kit is a simple device created to simplify and standardize dual explosive initiator systems.

It accepts two dual purpose M81 igniters for use with shock tube or M700 timed fuses aligned so that both firing pins can be pulled at once if needed.

Setting up a system is simple and you don’t need any tape or self-configured blocks.

Once the initiators are inserted, they are held in place by velcro one wrap.

Kinetic Breaching Technology: Integrated by Aardvark Tactical

Thursday, December 2nd, 2021

La Verne, CA: Aardvark Tactical is excited to announce the expansion of their portfolio with the Kinetic Breaching Tool (KBT). The KBT was purpose-built from the ground up to solve a specific problem for tactical units: filling the gap between manual forced entry and explosive breaching. This tool employs the best of physics in the form of a self-contained, jack-hammer style impact ram driven by a powder-actuated cartridge. This allows a large amount of energy to be precisely directed into locking mechanisms, hinges, or braces while minimizing the chances of collateral projectiles.

Although it weighs just 28 pounds, this tool has an energy output of 850 ft-lbs and comes with an eight-cartridge replaceable magazine. This allows the KBT to quickly breach fortifications that would otherwise be unbreachable or would simply take too long to breach, potentially exposing breachers to unsafe situations. These techniques include “Dead Man” and “Jamaican” bracing techniques, as well as outward swinging steel security screens and metal doors. The KBT also increases operator safety by allowing breachers to work from behind a shield or from the side of the door. This is a ready-to-use device that can dramatically increase breaching effectiveness and operator safety in ways that traditional breaching tools cannot.

KBT is currently in use by hundreds of units worldwide, delivering breaching solutions that minimize risk and maximize mission stability. This tool is more than a breaching device: it allows operators and units to approach their mission with heightened security.

Commenting on KBT’s technology, AARDVARK CEO Jon Becker states that: “The KBT is the most revolutionary breaching technology I’ve ever seen. It allows for extremely rapid breaching, and can bring down doors that are nearly impossible to breach without fatiguing the breacher. For large or complicated breaches, there is no other technology available that does what KBT can.”

The Kinetic Breaching Tool is available now, exclusively from Aardvark Tactical. Visit KBT.AardvarkTactical.com to learn more.

Fire Facilities Inc Now Offers Forcible Door Accessories to Enhance Training Experiences

Monday, August 2nd, 2021

SUN PRAIRIE, WI – Fire Facilities Inc. (FFI), has introduced new forcible door accessories for fire training towers. The dependable entry doors are offered to enhance training experiences for fire departments, public safety training facilities and military use.

            Manufactured by Breaching Technologies Inc. (BTI), the field-proven breach products are now available from Fire Facilities to provide more realistic and flexible training options in their training towers for forcible entry exercises. Fire Facilities now offers the Explosive, Pry and Ram-Pry breaching door products.

            “Forcible entry doors truly make training experiences more realistic,” says Aaron Adams, president of Fire Facilities Inc. “These doors are engineered and built to withstand the rigors of lifelike, real world training. The good news is the doors can be added to our existing training facilities or requested when placing a new order.”

Lifelike Training

            The Explosive Breaching Door is offered to fit especially with tactical towers. The inward swinging door can simulate up to a four-lock set using the locking system built into the door along with the expendable preaching pins. The explosive breaching pins are designed to simulate resistance to a maximum 400-grain breaching charge. The door itself is skinned with high-density polyethylene to reduce the risk of fragmentation and corrosion from explosive exposure.

            The Pry Breaching Door is mainly for the use fire training towers. It opens outward and can simulate up to a three-lock set using the built-in locking system and patented BTI breaching pins. The pins are made to simulate breaching wood, metal and reinforced frames. In addition to breaching pins, the pry door uses a low-cost wood insert to accept the use of a Halligan tool or similar type of prying tool.

            Finally, the Ram-Pry Breaching Door works well for towers that require both tactical and fire training within the same structure. The versatile inward and outward opening door includes expendable breaching pins along with wood inserts. It offers realistic ram and pry breach training and uses a low-cost wood insert to accept the use of a Halligan tool or other similar prying tools.

            This specific Ram-Pry Breaching Door was recently installed on a custom Fire Chief training model from Fire Facilities requested by the Nebraska Army National Guard for their training site in Hastings, Nebraska. It’s expected the Ram-Pry Door will be incorporated into the unit’s live-fire training, search and rescue, rappelling and helicopter rescue scenarios.

            Fire Facilities Inc. (FFI) manufactures a full line of steel fire training structures engineered to withstand real-life firefighting conditions. From mobile units to burn rooms to high-rise towers, FFI training models are available in a multitude of configurations. Our parent company, Trachte Building Systems, is one of the largest and oldest manufacturers of steel self-storage systems in the industry.  For more information, visit www.firefacilities.com or call 800-929-3726.
