UXO Bomb Disposal

Dispose_

We are equipped with a licence to acquire and keep explosives in two counties and hold a 250kg explosive magazine for nationwide disposal tasks. We can carry out high and low order demolition techniques in complex environments to tackle all explosive ordnance contamination projects.

Explosive Demolition_

We are one of very few UXO contractors in the UK with a police ‘acquire and keep’ licence. This means we can purchase serviceable explosives and store them in our magazine. We carry out short-notice demolitions across the UK, including the destruction of time-expired pyrotechnics and out of tolerance explosive products. Our magazine has a 250kg capacity, is off-grid and mobile. Integrated into a 20ft ISO container, we can readily deploy to sites using conventional means of transport. In 2019-2020 we carried out over 100 explosive demolitions, safely destroying over 3,500 items of UXO. 2021 stood out to be our busiest year yet, with the long-term clearance of literally millions of items of UXO at former air weapons range RAF Cowden.

A mobile, off-grid fully licenced explosives magazine with separate compartments for explosives and detonators. Deployable across the UK, with a capacity up to 250kg.

Using plastic explosives and electric or non-electric firing systems to cause a controlled detonation. Use of protective works, calculation of safety distances, protecting people and infrastructure, and demolition site management.

Using bleeding-edge techniques to cause high explosives to deflagrate rather than detonate, reducing the environmental impact and protecting infrastructure. Cutting charges, shaped charges, and thermal lances to destroy UXO without explosion.

Brimstone offers specialist demilitarisation service on consultation, including the safe removal, transportation, and end of life treatment of a range of munitions, including high explosives, time-expired pyrotechnics (TEPs), and small arms ammunitions.

Through our partners we can provide the safe transportation of UXO and other explosive or pyrotechnic natures in specialist demolition chambers, legal on UK roads and compliant to ADR regulations.
