Avalanche triggering systems

With an arsenal of innovative technologies, the Avalanche Guard permits safety easily, with the push of a button.

The Avalanche Guard is the main module of our comprehensive avalanche safety system by Inauen-Schätti. It will patiently await its use. Once it is time, it will perform its task reliably, with the push of a button, no matter the weather or the time of the day or night. It is characterized by its highly reliable technology, high safety standard and effective radius of up to 400 m.

Every shot is a hit

Avalanche Guards are installed in easily accessible sites for recharging, on foundations or by rock anchors. They are equipped with one or two protection boxes with 10 rottable charges at 2.5 kg or 5 kg each that are manually loaded via a stable, unfolding platform before the winter. Adjusted to the individual detonation points, the charges are tripped individually remote-controlled and hit their targets reliably every time over distances of up to 200 meters.

Safety by pushing a button

The charges are triggered from a safe site via PC, tablet or smartphone. Successful detonations (transmitted by geophone) and the still-available charges are shown here as well. A secure communication system transfers the commands from the operator's station to the Avalanche Guard, and the chargers are ejected simply and securely by the push of a button. The Avalanche Guard is supplied with the necessary energy for electrical control of all functions via a solar unit.  

At a single glance

  • 1 or 2 boxes at 10 explosive charges each
  • Explosive force 2.5 kg or 5 kg
  • Hit targets across distances up to 200 m
  • Effective rrange up to 400 m (2 boxes)
  • Control and inspection via PC, tablet or smartphone
  • Secure, unfolding operating platform
  • Power supply via solar unit
  • Decomposable explosive charges
  • For clearing terrain that is difficult to access
  • all-weather system


The throw charge is only pushed into the tube for the fastload system and brought into position by a ¼ turn. Then the explosives officer only needs to arm the charge. This makes charging much simpler and more efficient. This system is available for the Avalanche Guard and booster, as well as with single tube choice in the Avalanche Master.
