The FireBreak™ is a low-cost, disposable, explosively-driven wire cutter, typically used for cutting command wires without causing collateral damage.  Used by EOD Operators actively in Afghanistan, the FireBreak™ is one of the most simple wire cutting products on the market, and is highly portable.  It can take a standard detonator and does not require any specialist ammunition.


FireBreak™ is unique in its speed when fired.  The FireBreak™ acts faster than a detonator can actuate, therefore, reducing the risk to the operator and the risk of detonating the device.
