With the increase in terror attacks in recent years, many authorities have taken the decision to remove litter bins from public areas amid fears that bins would be used to plant explosives and
endanger public safety.
Blast resistant litter bins are a response to the threat of explosive devices hidden in trash cans located in high traffic public areas such as airports, shopping centres and railway stations.
A standard litter bin will fragment under blast loading spreading the lethal blast effects further. Removing litter bins completely only adds to public frustration and a greater cleaning burden. Replacing them with clear plastic bag bins may in some cases offer early identification of an explosive device, but does nothing to keep the public protected should the device detonate.
We have developed bomb proof litter bin solutions to meet the terrorist threat head-on as well as providing practical litter collection functionality.
The latest in Energetics bomb proof bin range, the HALO 80 Blast Resistant Litter Bin provides a solution to the threat of terrorist attacks in public areas by protecting against the blast and fragments of an explosive device and reducing overpressure.
Tested and certified against the latest UK Home Office standards (2011), the star rated HALO 80 non-fragmenting Blast Bin is specifically designed to protect the public and structures from blast effects.
The TC95 blast resistant trash/litter bin combines keeping the environment clean and protecting the public against terrorist blast threats.
The combination of the SABREMAT™ material and the TC95 bomb proof litter bin design protects against primary and secondary fragments and blast pressure. The TC95 has been tested and certified to stringent UK Government standards and is currently in use across the world in airports, railway/underground stations, bus stations and shopping malls to keep the public safe.
