Defense Technology Introduces OC Flameless Tri-Chamber Pyrotechnic Grenade - First-ever pyrotechnic OC option for crowd control

JACKSONVILLE, Florida – Defense Technology® is excited to announce its newest option for the Flameless Tri-Chamber Pyrotechnic Grenade family, which incorporates the new cutting-edge Pyrotechnic OC technology. This chemical agent device combines the effectiveness of Oleoresin Capsicum (OC) as an irritant and inflammatory agent with the flexible delivery methods, range and area coverage of pyrotechnic munitions for crowd control.

“We have spent a great deal of time developing this technology to provide a new option for crowd management and riot control,” said John Kapeles, Director of Defense Technology. “There are many benefits to using Pyrotechnic OC munitions vs. Tear Gas munitions. Pyrotechnic OC grenades provide a more immediate and dramatic effect, yet the subject’s vision clarity is maintained; recovery time is shorter when removed to fresh air and decontamination is simpler and faster.”

The OC Flameless Tri-Chamber Grenade contains naturally occurring pepper extract in a Saf-Smoke™ pyrotechnic formulation. The design of this grenade allows the contents to burn within an internal can and disperses the agent safely with reduced risk of fire. The delivery method, by way of a hand-thrown grenade, provides much wider area coverage and range options than with conventional OC sprays and grenades.

The Flameless Tri-Chamber Pyrotechnic Grenade family is designed primarily for tactical situations to detect and/or dislodge a barricaded subject. Further, the respiratory effects of these grenades can be particularly dramatic, producing rapid incapacitation and equally rapid recovery once the subject is removed to fresh air.

The OC Flameless Tri-Chamber Grenades are now available for law enforcement agencies only and will be featured at booth #12762 at the 2015 SHOT (Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor and Trade) Show.
