Air Horn Expansion & Damage


This incident occurred when an air horn exploded and broke an automobile windshield. Air horns can freeze if left in cold weather, rendering them inoperable. A worker required the equipment immediately and placed air horn directly on heat source to quickly thaw. The air horn canister expanded so quickly it exploded and shattered the windshield.
