SAN, Israeli designer and manufacturer of heavy and light equipment for the defense and commercial markets around the world, will present its unique Tactical Breaching Kit for special forces, law enforcement, and Search & Rescue teams, at DSEI 2019 show.

Weighing only 3-4 kg when in use by hand, the lightweight kit is powered by two batteries, each one able to power up to 25 breaching operations, totaling up to 50 breaches between charges. The use of a hydraulic method instead of explosives or mechanical tools, makes the system quiet and easy to operate, enabling forces to maintain the element of surprise in cases where the breach is required in order to locate and neutralize hostile forces. The kit is also safe for both the user and anything or anyone on the other side of the door, which is crucial in hostage and rescue situations.

“As most of our team were breachers during their security service, when we developed the Tactical Breaching Kit, our goal was to create the ideal breaching solution,” says SAN CEO Ran Nakash. “We invested considerable resources in developing a system that is based on our operational knowledge in the hydraulics field. This resulted in the best possible product for today’s operating forces and is currently being used throughout the world.”

The Tactical Breaching Kit can be equipped with a door breaker, spreader, long spreader, cutter, guillotine, cable cutter, jimmy bar, cylinder opener, wire cutter, and a magnet.
