With the increase in terror attacks in recent years, many authorities have taken the decision to remove litter bins from public areas amid fears that bins would be used to plant explosives and endanger public safety.
Blast resistant litter bins are a response to the threat of explosive devices hidden in trash cans located in high traffic public areas such as airports, shopping centres and railway stations.
A standard litter bin will fragment under blast loading spreading the lethal blast effects further. Removing litter bins completely only adds to public frustration and a greater cleaning burden. Replacing them with clear plastic bag bins may in some cases offer early identification of an explosive device, but does nothing to keep the public protected should the device detonate.
We have developed bomb proof litter bin solutions to meet the terrorist threat head-on as well as providing practical litter collection functionality.

New: HALO 80 Plus  / Blast Resistant Litter Bin

Energetics Technology presents an important new development in the field of public and infrastructure protection -the Halo 80 Plus.

The Halo 80 is a proven and popular blast protective litter bin for mid and low level threats. Using a brand new technology (patent applied for) Energetics Technology have developed the Halo 80 Plus.

With extensively improved protective performance against higher explosive overpressures and increased protection from high velocity fragments, the Halo 80 Plus defines a whole new level in blast protection for a small size bin.

Another new innovation and despite its small size, the Halo 80 Plus does not need to be bolted to the ground. This gives a saving on potentially expensive installation costs and enables the bin to be moved should the threat location change.


The Halo 80 Plus has been awarded a seven star rating in UK Home Office tests.

The Halo 80 Plus surpassed all expectations in testing, withstanding charges of more than double the capability of the standard Halo 80.


While the Halo 80 Plus looks exactly like a standard Halo 80 from the outside,it is a very different bin. The innovative design means that the bin does not need to be attached to the ground to fulfil its blast protecting duties. This saves time and money for the facilities team installing the bins and means that personnel and infrastructure protection can be in place quickly with the minimum of disruption. The blast protection has been enhanced to protect against even very large quantities of explosive and fragments.
