A cooperative effort between Broco, Inc., Eagle Industries, and Avon ISI has produced the Breachers' A.R.C. -- Advanced Respiration and Cutting system. The fully modular system allows side-by-side use of Broco's exothermic torch with respiratory protection for serious breaching operations. The Breachers' A.R.C. features a comfortable backpack molle platform with cylinder support enclosures; battery bag, rod extender and cutting rod holders; and pouches for mask, hoses, cable, and keeper clips. Users can customize the configuration of the system to their immediate requirements including adaptation to a full-size torch with a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) or mini-torch and SCBA among other solutions.
