The comprehensive testing that has been carried out over the last 7 years on SAA has proven that most of the packaging is inadequate and will not contain the SAA energetics and associated components; therefore, presenting a potential danger to persons and property within the hazard area of an explosive event are reduced.
The photo shows the aftermath of a 6c Bonfire Test on linked 12.7mm Ball & Tracer carried out in May 2011; the result UN Hazard Classification Code (HCC) was changed from 1.4c to 1.2c. Note: The witness screen was 4m from the platform.
A safe and more cost effective way to transport and store ammunition is required, especially as more transport governing authorities realise the inadequacies of some of the classifications awarded to explosive
One4Pack can offer a safe, low cost and reusable solution to the ammunition industry, manufacturers, Ministry of Defence, NATO and anyone that needs to transport ammunition.
The hazard class depends on the results of the fire;
Unfortunately ignorance of the regulations is not an excuse. Mistakes in using the wrong packaging or incorrectly marking your hazardous cargo, can leave you liable to prosecution.
We can assist with recommending the best pack method for your product; we can also assist in classifying a new product. We offer a full consultation and testing program, often being able to improve the hazard classification of your product.
Currently we are testing the cage on a wide variety of products, from ammunition to smoke grenades and flares and are confident we can reduce the shipping hazards significantly.
We are happy to work with manufacturers and shippers to find a safer more cost effective solution to shipping hazardous cargo.
Many other sizes can be constructed depending on the product but may be subject to further testing.
The safety cages are covered by a certificate of Grant of Patent (GB2536159). They all offer a safer, fully tested and approved alternative to the standard practice of packing and transporting ammunition and all fully comply with all HSE classification and dangerous goods packaging requirements; having successfully passed the UN Series 6c (Bonfire) Test and packaging tests. Making them fully certified for use on all types of commercial transport.
Currently all One4Pack cages are manufactured in the UK, for some clients this maybe impractical, inconvenient or expensive. We are happy to discuss manufacturing in other countries by way of a licence agreement, joint venture or even a partnership. However the arrangement is structured, for us specifically there is one thing that we must make imperative in any agreement, Quality of product. If the cages are not made to the standard in which we test them they will not work as stated. Which would jeopardise public safety and harm our reputation.
We welcome the opportunity to work with new markets worldwide
