What is the X-Ball?
The X-Ball® is an innovative breaching tool with astonishing glass-breaking capabilities.
The X-Ball® can easily break through windows in most vehicles with a firm tap or an underhand throw.
This compact device eliminates the face-to-flame or face-to-fugitive contact firefighters, law enforcement officers, and military personnel make when breaking glass barriers during a rescue.
Designed to break laminated glass
Designed to break heavy laminated glass
Small, compact design makes it easy to throw and carry.
Powerful, yet lightweight (less than 1lb)
Keep a distance from flames and other hazards.
Easily penetrates most glass (except laminated).
By utilizing the X-BallÂ® extraction device, the responding officers can slow down the situation and throw the device through the side or rear glass, utilizing cover from their patrol vehicle to gain better intelligence as to the situation they are facing, as well as create a diversion because of the X-BallÂ® shattering the windows.
Until the development of the X-BallÂ®, firefighters only option was to break glass using their axe By deploying this device, responders can safely and easily penetrate glass to allow air into a vehicle.
The X-BallÂ® also allows firefighters to quickly and easily self-rescue when trapped in a burning building.
Firefighters must be prepared to self-rescue themselves if they become trapped in a burning building. The firefighters must expend precious moments in either crossing a room and “breaking and raking” a window, and then find an anchor point for them to tie off their rescue line before exiting the building.
