Avalanche triggering systems

Reliable and consistent: even on difficult terrains. The Avalanche Master ensures maximum safety.

Controlled triggering of avalanches is particularly challenging in steep slopes. The Avalanche Master perfectly complements the Avalanche Guard and is the second pillar of the Avalanche Guard® system from Inauen-Schätti. With the Avalanche Master, explosive charges can be safely and reliably detonated over the snow surface to prevent the explosive charge from sliding away and to guarantee the optimum detonation effect.

Every shot is a hit!


Avalanche Master and Avalanche Guard ideally complement each other for safe and controlled clearance of dangerous avalanche accumulations. The Avalanche Master is also equipped with 10 of the same decomposable explosive charges, in the 2.4 kg or 4.5 kg options, and operated from the same control program. However the explosive charge is not thrown into the avalanche slope, but hung from a rope. It detonates above the snow surface so that it does not fall down steep terrains, and achieves its full effect in the starting area.

Safety at the push of a button


The Avalanche Master is fitted with a concrete base or anchored to the rock in the starting area, at a 25º incline. It offers space for 10 explosive charges and can be simply and safely maintained and supplied via the fold-up operating platform. Each explosive charge is equipped with a lowering coil. The blaster gives the command to eject the charge via the ATMS and can then observe the success of the blast from a distance. The power for the protective box, safety system and trigger is supplied via an integrated solar unit.

Enjoy the benefits of the combination of an Avalanche Guard with an Avalanche Master. You can save on a control unit and benefit from optimal flexibility in the number of explosion points. Positioning 20 explosive charges at one loading point also simplifies logistics.

This is only one example of how we respond to customer requirements. The wide range of avalanche trigger systems from Inauen-Schätti AG knows almost no limits within the area of artificial triggering of avalanches.
