Expected release date is Jun 1st 2023


NOTE: This current item listing is for a PRE-SALE of goods that may become available in the future.  These are not shipping immediately.  If there is sufficient interest from the public on this kind of item, we will proceed with the order that we have prepared with our supplier.  They are ready to start production, but that will only happen if there is traction from you all, our customers.  If sufficient interest does not manifest, then we will cancel these pre-orders and you will be refunded.

After months of research and negotiation with a gas supplier, Red Team Tools is prepared to offer a tool that will allow professional entry teams, first responders, and security testers the means of triggering passive infrared Request-to-Exit (REX) sensors through the use of r134a tetrafluoroethane in a palm-sized package.

Our Air Canister Nozzle Head tool (available separately) can accept these threaded canisters of refrigerant gas and produce small clouds of very cold air that can often unlock electronically-controlled doors and in many cases prevent the activation of alarms and alerts within access control systems.

The gas in these canisters, while it is a refrigerant, has negligible ozone depletion potential and only one tenth the GWP of other more hazardous refrigerants.  It also has the benefit of being non-flammable... the same cannot be said for the more typically used difluoroethane contained in canned air spray dusters.  R134a is commonly used as a propellant for airsoft guns (as a substitute for flammable green gas) and as a propellant for some medical inhalers.

These canisters are bayonet-style and their threaded tops are designed to be pierced by the nozzle head adapter when it is being screwed into place.  Once exhausted, it is in fact possible to refill these canisters and more news as well as instructions will be coming soon on that front.  But for most entry teams, these will likely be considered consumable items.

NOTE: As stated above, this current item listing is for a PRE-SALE of goods that may become available in the future.  These are not shipping immediately. Please be aware of the following caveats...

1. These are for sale domestically, shipping only within the United States at the present time.  We do not have logistics in place to manage international customs and requirements related to compressed gas.  If you place an order to an international address, your order will be canceled and refunded, minus our merchant bank's processing fees.

2. Even though these are not hazardous material, given that they are compressed gas they can ship via ground service only.  If you place an order and choose anything other than ground shipping, you are still going to receive these via ground shipping.

3. These will not be available and will not ship until the summer.  We are targetting the month of May for order fulfillment, but shipments may not be until June if there are delays with US Customs related to our receipt of the gas canisters from our supplier.  If you add any other items to your web cart while placing this pre-order, understand that none of those items will ship until everything is ready to go.

If you're OK with the above conditions and caveats and you're as excited as we are about the prospect of using r134a in the field to open locked doors during penetration tests and covert entry engagements, place your pre-order and keep your ears open for updates from us as things develop!
