the air-squib™
The Air Squib™ is a portable unit that will simulate a bloody ”hit” in the clothes of an actor. No explosives are used - only air and batteries. Safe!

The unit is radio controlled and is easily set off by a technician by simply pushing a button on the transmitter.

The result looks very convincing and is suitable for theatre, film and television. Today, we have built and supplied productions with more than 250 units that are in use around the world - USA, Japan, Mexico, Sweden, Great Britain, Russia, Switzerland, Norway and many more.

The Air Squib™, is a pneumatic squib or air powered bullet hit simulator that is mainly used for film, television or theatre productions to create the illusion of an actor being hit by a bullet. It is intended to be used behind clothing - and will not work on bare skin.

The Air Squib™ consists of three parts - the radio control transmitter, the portable, radio-controlled air ejector - hidden on the belt, or similar, and the special nozzle - placed on the inside of the shirt, where you want the  bloody hit to appear. The nozzles are very durable and made from Macrolone, often used in bullet-resistant windows! They may be re-used hundreds of times.
