The Avalanche Pipe addresses the key safety issue - it makes avalanches explode rather than costs!
Safety should not be a matter of cost. This is why Inauen-Schätti offers the Avalanche Pipe, the flexible and extremely cost-effective individual throwing unit in the Avalanche Guard® system. The avalanche pipe can almost be seen as an extension of the patroller's arm and acts as a mobile or stationary installation for safe and effective clearance of hazardous avalanche areas. The compact installation is ideal for a wide range of applications and permits a quick sequence of blasts from a safe location, even in bad weather.
As an affordable triggering solution, the Avalanche Pipe makes it easy for blast experts to safely and effectively clear slopes and ravines. At the exact time and in the exact location that is indicated. From permanently installed avalanche pipes to those mounted to piste vehicles, the inserted explosive points can be precisely defined in a 360º radius. This means that ranges of up to 200 m are possible.
Efficient use of avalanche pipes is, as for all installations in the Avalanche Guard® system, not only weatherproof but also ecologically sustainable. This is because the explosive charges for avalanche pipes are actually the same products, made from a decomposable material, as those used for the Avalanche Guard and Avalanche Master. This means that users can guarantee safety in avalanche areas with a clean conscience.
Our Avalanche Guards, Avalanche Masters and Avalanche Pipes ensure safety in the mountains throughout Europe and North America, triggering controlled avalanches to protect roads, ski slopes and thus human lives. You too can benefit from the vast experience and know-how of Inauen-Schätti AG in the field of artificial avalanche blasting.
