Launch: FireBreak – Explosive Wire Cutting Tool


At the Counter Terror Expo in April 2013, Alford Technologies launched a new explosive tool used for performing wire cutting tasks.  Named the “FireBreak”, this new explosive tool is a low-cost, disposable, explosively-driven wire cutter used for cutting command wires.  FireBreak is constructed of lightweight materials and is a one-shot disposable tool.  It does not require specialist ammunition, unlike similar wire cutting products.  The FireBreak severs command wires in a time and order of magnitude less than is required for actuation of the target munition’s detonator.  This is critical to safety and successful disposal.  For more information email
