With an arsenal of innovative technologies, the Avalanche Guard permits safety at the push of a button.
The Avalanche Guard is the so-called main module of the comprehensive Avalanche Guard® safety system from Inauen-Schätti. It patiently waits to be used. When it’s time, the Guard reliably executes its order at the push of a button. Whatever the weather conditions and whether during the day or at night. It is characterised by its extremely reliable technology, its high safety standard and an effective range of up to 400 m.
Avalanche Guards are installed at easily accessible locations for reloading, on heavy-duty foundations or by using rock anchors. They are equipped with one or two throw boxes, each with 10 decomposable explosive charges, in 2.4 kg or 4.5 kg variants. These are manually loaded before winter via a stable, fold-up platform. The loads are triggered via remote control and shot at the individual blast points. They always reliably reach their target over distances of up to 200 m.
Our avalanche guards are an effective artificial avalanche blasting solution.
Another example of the use of our Avalanche Guards - known back then as avalauncher - can be found with the two avalanche guards in the ski area in Lech am Arlberg. They secure the Langer Zug / Rüfikopf ski slopes. Thanks to different propellant charges, two to three different targets can be targeted from one blasting box and thus avalanches can be triggered selectively and over a wide area.
Blasting avalanches is simple, efficient, safe and cost-effective thanks to our Avalanche Guards.
