BlastSax are pioneering military grade sandless sandbags which have undergone extensive trials with the British armed forces and can save lives by mitigating explosions from IEDs while helping to preserve the evidence.
They are transformed from being as light as a pillowcase to more effective than sandbags in minutes, simply by being immersed in water.
BlastSax have been shown to be more effective than traditional sandbags at capturing fragments from explosive devices and helping forensic teams gather evidence. They are also proved to be a reliable protective barrier against grenades and bullets with an official army report stating: "Even at extremely close ranges the BlastSax were able to contain the round. The BlastSax were able to offer excellent protection against this calibre of weapon.
"And even when grenades landed on or very close to BlastSax they were able to absorb the fragmentation."
