Fire Time-Delay Devices

Arson is a crime against property that involves unlawfully setting a fire by any means to destroy that property. Arsonists use a number of techniques to set fires, the simplest being to throw a lit match onto some crumpled newspapers, and then run away. The professionals typically use a time delay device or technique that allows them to be well away from the fire site when it begins, and have a good alibi as to where they were and who they were with when the fire “broke out”. This may happens hours or days after they last visited the site. They also often try to use a technique that leaves little or no identifiable evidence.

Securesearch, Inc. manufactures a number of different time delay arson device inert products. Some are for classroom awareness display training purposes only, while others are fully functional. As we custom make every item, we can custom manufacture particular items to your requirements.

We also make simulated post blast / post arson “evidence”. We burn some of the delay firing items that we make, to different degrees of destruction. The remains are placed in small bottles or clear plastic boxes, and are labelled. They are matched with pre-burn items for a before-and-after training aid.

Our range of products in this category includes electrical, electronic, mechanical, chemical and combination delay-firing devices.

CHRONOMETER
Order Sku: ITA-169
Chronometer (hour counter). This training uses a motor-driven number wheel counter. It is designed to illustrate a long-delay initiator which can operate for thousands of hours before triggering and initiating the detonator. However, the instructor can demonstrate initiation, without tripping the counter, by simulating the tripping action. Full instructions on how to do this are provided with each model.
