Bomb resistant bins

The CIS type 4180 anti-bomb bin is a blast containment litter bin and provides 360° lateral protection against fragmentation and blast pressure. The type 4180 is utilized as a regular litter bin in public areas and can also be used as a safe receptacle to temporarily store suspicious objects until appropriate authorities arrive. It has the appearance of an attractive, original and contemporary fixture and can harmoniously integrate into any urban setting.

The bin is designed to withstand the explosion of 500g of plastic explosive, equivalent to 2 hand grenades. The container combines a high strength outer steel with a patented inner compressive which absorb the major blast energy and resist fragments. Residual blast energy is vented upwards away from the public, keeping the receptacle unpenetrated. In addition the container is engineered to provide a highly effective means of litter control. An internal lid with lock provides a secure trash receptacle with easy service and minimum maintenance.

Waste receptacles are a necessity for public waste management but can pose a serious threat to public safety, considering how easily they can conceal an explosive device planted by a terrorist. The problems solved with the CIS type 4180 explosion resistant litter bin are control of four hazards from an improvised explosive device (IED) when detonated in a litter bin:
– Primary fragments as parts of the device that tend to be small and travel at high velocity
– Secondary fragments as parts of the bin that tend to be larger and travel at a lower velocity
– Blast pressure
– Thermal effects
