Alford Strip™

The Alford Strip™ is a high-efficiency tamped strip charge used to split wooden doors and windows, cut laminated glass and breach uPVC doors. It enables users to use, typically ¼ to ⅓ of the NEQ needed to breach using untamped charges.

Made as a plastic extrusion, it is filled with an inert water-based gel or clay, which gives enhanced tamping combined with ease of use and minimal fragmentation.

It is designed to reduce the NEQ of strip charges to a bare minimum.  Simplicity of use and speed of deployment were the primary considerations in its design.

The Alford Strip™ is provided in two charge sizes; 25mm and 42mm diameter.  The 25mm Alford Strip™ is provided in sets of 2 x 1m or 3 x 65cm lengths, and the 42mm Alford Strip™ is provided in 1m and 50cm lengths. 

The size of charge can be selected according to the type of target. For hardwood doors or uPVC doors or windows use the 25mm charge, and for multi-skinned security doors, armoured windows, or even for wall breaching, use the 42mm charge.

Corner pieces allow frame charges to be quickly assembled for cutting windows.
