SAFETY FUSES

Safety fuses are thread-covered strands of black powder that are set to burn for a specific time. They are used to initiate explosive charges. The fuse length depends on the required safety time. The lines consist of a black powder core, 2 or 3 yarn windings, a bitumen impregnation and a plastic coating. They burn without a visible flame, without sparks spraying out from the side and are also suitable for underwater use.

Since the WANO safety fuses meet the relevant national standards in the civil sector, they are used on almost every continent.

In the military sector, WANO has established itself as the exclusive supplier to several armies worldwide.
