HESCO MIL™ units can be used to construct protective structures from simple single-tier vehicle barriers, perimeter walls, to bunker complex, MIL units enable the construction of rapid and efficient critical infrastructure protection.
HESCO Defensive Barriers are certified by the world’s leading authorities in blast mitigation and the effects of projectile impact, using a variety of weapons systems and Vehicle Borne Improvised Explosive Devices, the earth-filled barriers have been awarded a K12 and M50 vehicle rating, which is given to products able to stop a 15,000lb truck traveling at 50mph.
Since their earliest use in the first Gulf War, HESCO barriers have become part of the force protection landscape. The legendary MIL unit’s ability to position and contain large volumes of earth, sand, gravel or rock, to create limitless defensive barriers, has made it indispensable in the arena of force protection and whether used as a preventative barrier or safe have bunkers, HESCO units can protect personnel, critical assets and are proven to safeguard equipment and facilities from breach or sabotage.
Safe havens and protective structures
Delivered using skids, pallets or custom containers, HESCO units are used to build single tier barriers or high-level walls to protect against blast, ballistics and shield from line-of-sight.
Utilizing locally available fill material such as sand, gravel, soil or even concrete, and employing minimal manpower, HESCO units can be filled using wheeled front loaders, excavators, concrete skips or by hand if equipment is unavailable.
