Advanced breaching systems – one of the company’s series of products is the POW-R-ENTRY, manufactured by the American company IML Corp and designated for breaching locked doors, gates, security bars, fences and padlocks quickly and sefely.
The tool which resembles a weapon is activated by the man carrying it by pulling the trigger, which activates a blank cartridge. To differ from weapon, this tool does not shoot a bullet but rather transfers the shooting shock to a chisel at the front of the tool. When the chisel is directed to locked doors, gates, locks etc – the 15 tons impact (depending on the cartridge) causes the breaching. The tool is designated for forces that breach installations on emergency situations, such as the home front command, police, fire fighters. It is safe for the user and the people surrounding him.
