Discover why we are the preferred choice for safeguarding lives and assets.
Single Vent Systems
We provide a range of single vent and semi-confined systems designed to effectively minimize explosion impact and greatly limit fragmentation dispersion. Our single vent systems offer convenient top-loading and unloading access while also ensuring protection against horizontal fragmentation.
Blast Containment Receptacles (BCR’s)
Why a BCR Trash can?
Trash cans are often chosen as hiding spots for explosive devices due to their concealment potential. Especially in high-risk public venues, these trash cans can pose a significant threat by becoming dangerous fragments if an explosion occurs within them.
Our innovative design offers comprehensive 360° lateral protection, effectively containing the blast effects of various threat levels of explosives.
Mistral proudly manufactures over 90% of the world’s blast-resistant trash receptacles (BRTR) and holds the exclusive Department of Defense Homeland Security Safety Act Designation and Certification. Furthermore, our trash cans have received certification from ASTM and have been rigorously tested to meet the latest standards, including E2710 and E2639.
We manufacture a line of scalable and modular open top explosive ordinance disposal (EOD) transport vessels. These systems are commonly used by EOD technicians for the transportation of suspicious devices and unexploded munitions. The SVS systems come equipped with a 360° articulating crane arm capable of loading and unloading packages with varying dimensions and weights.
Our range of explosive storage vessels provides a convenient and cost-effective solution for in-house storage of explosives and small-caliber ammunition. Many of our vessels have received approval from the Department of Defense Explosive Safety Board (DDESB).
We take pride in offering the broadest range of blast capacities to meet all your storage requirements. Our off-the-shelf storage products span from 30 grams up to 45 kg of Net Explosive Weight (N.E.W.), ensuring we have you covered for any storage needs.
large storage vessels
Our line of large, fully-confined explosive storage vessels is designed to effectively contain explosive effects, ranging from 5 kg to 45 kg TNT equivalent, depending on the model. What sets us apart are our industry-leading minimum standoff distances.
These vessels are the perfect choice for:
- Police EOD and Special Forces for storing explosives in populated areas
- Laboratories, for sorting pyrotechnical components
- Military units located in urban areas
- Storage of explosive waste
- Removing the need for off-site storage
- Storage of large suspicious objects in a variety of checkpoint operations
Small Storage Vessels
Our line of small fully-confined explosive storage vessels are rated to contain the explosive effects of smaller quantities of TNT equivalent depending on the model, with industry leading design and function. Along with the rest of our products, these vessels may be configured and equipped with additional accessories to meet every mission requirement you may face.
Our in-house engineering capabilities afford you the opportunity to work with us to develop specialty chambers and vessels to suit your needs. We have developed research chambers which enable you to intentionally detonate explosives multiple times inside of your facility, containers for lithium-ion batteries, blast shelters, and fully customized vehicles equipped with containment vessels.
Total Containment Vessels (TCV's)
Our range of Transport and Containment Vessels (TCVs) provides users with unparalleled confidence when it comes to transporting and securely containing chemical or biological explosive devices. Offering containment ratings spanning from 6 kg to 9 kg TNT, our system enables repeated detonations while maintaining a gas-tight seal, ensuring that none of the hazardous contaminants inside the vessel are released into the external environment.
Both models have undergone rigorous testing with live explosives and have received approval from the Department of Defense Explosive Safety Board (DDESB).
