Enabling one-handed grenade retrieval
On the Israel Pavilion, Hall B, Stand 2357, ACS Industries, a leading supplier of innovative grenade carriers, presents its innovative Grenade Trigger Pouch. This rigid carrier for fast and safe handling of fragmentation and flash bang grenades enables one-handed grenade retrieval. It is intended for use by any soldier carrying a grenade, and was specially designed for military and police Special Forces and counterterrorism units.
“The Grenade Trigger Pouch was designed to address a serious safety issue in the handling of grenades of various kinds,” Nir Shaul, Founder and CEO of ACS, explained. “Unfortunately, there are dozens of accidents every year involving grenades. The solution we developed is the only one of its kind in the world – enabling secure carrying and quick, safe, one-handed grenade extraction and detonation.”
Custom-molded from composite materials, the Grenade Trigger Pouch can be customised to fit every type and model of grenade, and is already available for six popular grenade types. The pouch has an ergonomic structure employing five separate security measures that enable both safe handling as well as fast and efficient grenade operation. According to Mr. Shaul, “six times faster than conventional fabric pouches, the one-handed extraction and detonation enable the grenade operator’s eyes to remain on the target and to always keep one hand on his weapon.”
ACS is headed by the owners of Nirtal Training & Supply of Combat Equipment and Team 3 Group – two established companies in the security field, employing a total of 6,500 people. Both companies are headed and staffed by elite military, police, intelligence, and security specialists with expertise gained from actual combat. The company holds patents for its non-textile pouch for grenades – the Grenade Trigger Pouch.
