We have a range of Unit Containers to meet your transport and storage requirements; the unit containers have been designed to fit the NATO and EURO pallet profile. All offer a tested and certified method of packaging which guarantees that all your ammunition can be transported and stored as UN Hazard Classification Code (HCC) 1.4s.
The pallet unit containers are designed to contain all the ammunition components and ammo box fragments during the event of a fire. They work by allowing the resulting gases generated by combustion to be vented safely whilst at the same time prevent the escape fragments.
See our video of 7200 x 12.7mm x MP/MPT/API linked rounds being contained throughout the 6c bonfire test.
Each design is made up of ten components, many of which are interchangeable, allowing many sizes to be stocked with a minimum number of parts. They can be finished with a powder coat, or wet paint with the option to zinc plate for extra protection from corrosion, depending on your needs.
The cages unique interlocking system are easily assembled and when not in use can be flat packed for ease of storage.
Where security is an issue we offer a design with a locking mechanism, this container Unit can be used to increase the security of a product, it may not change the hazard class but can ‘overpack’ a pallet of sensitive materials to prevent unauthorised access or pilfering of the contents.
Handling and Storage
Most One4Pack safety cages are supplied flat packed and are easy to assemble, move and stack. Six full size cages can be flat packed to fit on one pallet. Pallets of cages can be stacked 3 high. All components are available separately should items be damaged or lost. It is not necessary to purchase a full cage to replace missing parts. This further improves logistics and reduces cost. We also offer a full refurbishment and replacement service.
A range of storage cages are available, including a rigid design that will allow a full pre packed pallet to be placed inside, immediately reducing the HCC to 1.4s. This is ideal for situations where it is not practical to re pack a full pallet, ie at port of entry. This in turn can improve the logistics of transport or storage from the port of entry, reducing costs and increasing safety.
If all stored or transported munitions are classified as 1.4s, a reduction in your building and third party liabilities insurance may be possible.
Disposal of Ammunition after Military Operations
The logistical headache, of moving ammunition to and from any military activity is costly, difficult and even unsafe, especially when different calibers or natures of ammunition are involved. The availability of the One4Pack safety cages takes will remove all these issues.
Ammunition can be safely deployed and into any training or operational area, with improved safety and security. Even ammunition that has lost its identity or has exceeded its shelf life can all be transported safely and securely as mixed calibers for disposal, inside one cage.
The same cage can be used to dispose of unsafe ammunition, utilizing the cage as a containment vessel to allow burning in situ. The cage will safely contain all the contents , enabling destruction without the risk of unexploded ordnance escaping and becoming a hazard at a later stage.
Storage and shipping is greatly simplified, costs are reduced and the whole supply chain becomes more efficient, especially when most products can be shipped as 1.4S on commercial airlines. Removing the restriction of Cargo Only transport allows for greater flexibility when looking at shipping options and brings substantial savings to the client.
By utilising the One4Pack safety cages to reduce the HCC to 1.4S , savings of 30% + on transport and insurance quotes have been seen depending on the quantity, transport type and destination.
One4Pack safety cages, offer you the choice of safely transporting by land, sea or air, giving you the flexibility to choose the cheapest and fastest route for your cargo. When tendering a saving in time or money could make the difference between winning and losing an order.
