BAABS: Blasting Accessory and Assist Bracket System

BAABS: Blasting Accessory and Assist Bracket SystemConventional deadman that are tie-wrapped or clamped onto the blast hose forces the blaster into less than ideal body and arm positions which are strenuous to sustain. This quickly causes operator fatigue resulting in reduced blasting productivity. With this in mind, BAABS (Blasting Accessories and Assist Bracket System) was originally conceptualized to address these widely accepted limitations by directing most of the blast nozzle thrust onto the Thrust Management Brace Assembly which can be placed onto the chest or other parts of the body capable of absorbing this thrust for longer durations. Less muscle and strength demand results in significant reduction of fatigue. Clenched grips, hand cramps, and arm fatigue are drastically reduced due to the more ergonomic benefits, which enable more comfortable control of the blast nozzle. 

BAABS will allow blasters with smaller hands and bulky gloves to grip with ease and can be quickly configured for left- or right-hand operations as well as multiple positions to accommodate different blast angles. As a result, smaller body-size blasters can more easily manage larger blast nozzles. The improved overall comfort will enhance blaster safety and increase productivity by promoting more blast nozzle on time per shift. 

BAABS comes in two sizes. The short rail system to allow for movement in tighter spaces or the longer base option to accommodate the blaster’s arm length.

Testimonials

Check out what the Air Force has to say about BAABS and our other products!

"Our blasters like using the Short-rail BAABS due to its ergonomics design specifically on flat easily accessible surfaces, not so much on far reached/tucked-in sections of certain aerospace components. I am impressed on the sealed electrical connectors and how tough the Dragon cord's insulation material is. Time will tell but I think they would easily survive the harsh environment in the blast booth compared to other cord systems we use."

BAABS Blast Light Subassembly

The BAABS Blast Light is designed to be mounted onto the front of a BAABS rail to illuminate surfaces to be blasted. This accessory improves visibility in dark or dusty conditions, promoting more thorough blasting and improved productivity.  Mounting the light onto the BAABS rails enables the illumination pattern to track the blast pattern. When installed next to the nozzle holder, the BAABS rail base keeps the blast hose, nozzle, and blast light aligned. In addition, the swivel feature of the rail allows the blast light to remain fixed by negating the naturally occurring blast hose twist that often causes tie-wrapped lights and deadman to shift during blasting. Sacrificial quick tear-off lenses assure optimum illumination during blasting.

Compact BAABS: SHORT RAIL

Compact BAABS (Blasting Accessories and Assist Bracket System) is a smaller version of our standard BAABS and can be used in more confined blasting spaces. Compact BAABS works the same as standard BAABS except in a smaller compact design. With this design, the blaster can keep the nozzle close to the body, allowing them to fit into the tighter blasting spaces.
