The Barrett Bag offers
up to 90% protection from injury and damage when placed over a bomb.
It is made from a reinforced, rubberised material filled with a fire retardant
liquid which absorbs the blast and shrapnel of the bomb, and quenches the
fireball. The product is patented worldwide.
How does it work?
The size of a large pillow, weighing about 30lbs (16 kilos), The Barrett
Bag can be placed over any suspicious-looking parcel.
Who should have one?
The Barrett Bag should form an integral part of any Security Operation
in charge of airports, shopping malls, hotels, sports stadiums, parking
garages - any place that could be a terrorist
target. The bag is packed in a sturdy metal case which can be fixed
to a wall for easy access. It can either be a fixed feature, or used on
an ad hoc basis, as when a pop concert is being held in a park, for instance.
An analysis of what terrorists have done in
the past is also useful in predicting where they might strike next.

true? The Barrett Bag has been scientifically tested and proven
in live incidents in South Africa.

grenades A smaller size is also available which can be placed
over a hand grenade that is thrown into a vehicle. It is of particular

The Barrett bag can be used to reduce blast damage to
negligible levels of :
- SPM limpet mines
- Mini limpet mines
- up to 6kg explosive charges
- home-made pipe bombs
- hand grenades
In all instances, it is the blast effect that kills and
destroys when the bomb explodes. Temperatures of the fireball could reach
3000 degrees celsius. More importantly, the blast effect, caused by the
velocity of detonation (VOD) of limpet mines and larger explosive devices,
reaches incredible speeds and forces of destruction - 9 times faster than
a rifle bullet. It breaks up objects in its path, turning them into shrapnel,
and it is this shrapnel that kills, shreds and destroys.
The Barrett Bag - Proven in the
- Barrett Bag placed over limpet mine concealed under a
Black Jack table at a casino. The bomb went off. Nobody injured. Not even
the table was damaged. After sweeping and drying out, casino back in operation
