The S-LOAD avalanche explosive charge for the Avalanche Trigger LM32 ensures maximum safety.

The newly developed and patented S-LOAD explosive charge for the Avalanche Trigger LM32 features an impressive mechanism which combines the explosive and ignition material just before the blast. These are stored separately during transport and storage in the throw boxes. The S-LOAD explosive charge is divided into two parts. The upper part contains the bobbin and the ignition sequence (impact igniter, safety fuse and explosive capsule number 8), whereby the explosive materials (explosive and detonating cord) are positioned in the lower part of the explosive charge. The explosive material and ignition material are separated by certified housing during transport and storage. This guarantees that no explosive material can be injected when positioning the ignition material. The possibility of mass ignition is checked for and excluded.

How it works

When the explosive charge falls from the magazine box, the retaining cord has to fulfil 3 tasks: tear off the impact igniter, combine the explosive and detonating material and finally hold the explosive charge above the snow cover! When the explosive charge hangs on the throw line, the lit safety fuse leads the fire to the explosive capsule. This then leads it to the explosive fuse, which is now located at the explosive capsule given that the load has now been thrown. The explosive cord then initiates the injection of the explosive material.

Thorough inspection and testing.
The key idea of the new S-LOAD loading system was to achieve a maximum level of safety, by keeping the ignition material separated from the explosive material until it is thrown out of the throw module. We tested and confirmed the functionality in numerous meticulous explosion attempts. Since the explosive is only triggered when the load falls out of the Avalanche Trigger LM32, the explosive charge remains safe during transport by helicopter or when in its box. This means that, even when the ignition material is triggered, the explosive remains unaffected.

At a glance

  • SEPARATE: The ignition material and explosive material are separated during transport and storage
  • SAFETY: The design for positioning of the ignition material guarantees that no explosive material can be injected.
  • Convenient handling ensured by the practical layout of the combustion material
  • Simple and safe handling

Explosives made from wood and cardboard

Materials for explosive charges, such as the ones used for Avalanche Guards and Avalanche Masters, are usually made from natural materials such as cardboard and wood. The material quickly decomposes in nature.

The spacious cardboard pipe means that if the explosive cartridge is changed, an explosive amount of 4.5 kg can be easily stored in the pipe without any problems. This results in an additional guarantee of availability for the future.
