The Alford Strip™ is a high-efficiency tamped strip charge used to split wooden doors and windows, cut laminated glass and breach uPVC doors. It enables users to use, typically ¼ to ⅓ of the NEQ needed to breach using untamped charges.


Made as a plastic extrusion, it is filled with a stiff water-based gel which gives enhanced tamping combined with ease of use and minimal fragmentation.


It was designed to reduce the NEQ of strip charges to a bare minimum.  Simplicity of use and speed of deployment were the primary considerations in its design.


The Alford Strip™ is provided in two charge sizes; 25mm and 42mm diameter.  The 25mm Alford Strip™ is provided in sets of 2 x 1m or 3 x 65cm lengths, and the 42mm Alford Strip™ is provided in 1m and 50cm lengths.  Corner pieces allow frame charges to be quickly assembled for cutting windows.
