Hot Galvanized Hesco Barrier for military with ASTM Standards
HESCO earth-filled MIL units have been used worldwide to create
perimeter protection barriers; construct temporary accommodation;
mitigate VBIED’s and have now evolved to offer semi-permanent
security fence solutions.
Since the First Gulf War the rapidly deployable wire mesh baskets
have been deployed in arduous and remote locations creating simple
perimeter walls to complex city-like fortification, defending
personnel, equipment and critical assets of the US Army, UK MOD,
USMC, USAF and NATO.
Recoverable MIL units are engineered to be deployed in exactly the
same way as our standard products, however, with the removal of one
pin, the fill material will flow freely from the cell and the units
can be flat packed for transportation to a disposal site and
recovered fully intact.
Easily and Rapidly constructed HESCO Bastion Concertainer create
effective and economical protective structures. Originally designed
to replace conventional field fortification materials such as
sandbags, HESCO units were first used operationally by the British
Army in the 1991 Gulf War. HESCO is now in service with many major
military organisations including the UK MoD, ADF and the US
Military and has become a benchmark in force protection throughout
Whether used to define boundaries or as a preventative barrier,
HESCO units have been employed to safeguard personnel, vehicles,
equipment, facilities and other vulnerable target areas in a
variety of military, peacekeeping, humanitarian and civilian
operations. HESCO units have also been extensively used in civil
applications in flood management, erosion control and slope
HESCO walls can be built to any required length and to any height.
The unique joining system allows the user great flexibility in
configurations and requirements. One of the key advantages of the
system is that any readily available infill material can be
utilised. Sand, rubble, rocks, soil, concrete and even snow have
been successfully used.
Rapid construction is another key feature of the product. A typical
wall of HESCO Concertainer units equivalent to approximately 1500
sandbags, can be erected and filled by two men and a single common
loader in less than twenty minutes. An equivalent wall constructed
of sandbags would take 10 men 7 hours to build.
The flat-pack design of HESCO Concertainer units allows for
extremely efficient storage and transportation. Folded units can be
packaged on standard timber skids or pallets, in containers or as
bulk cargo. Over 500m of Mil® 1 units can be transported in a
single 20ft ISO container.
HESCO units are manufactured from welded mesh, either 8 gauge (4mm)
or 6 gauge (5mm) and coated using the Galfan process. Each units is
lined with ISO Standard 200g/m 2 non-woven polypropylene
The unique, patented design of HESCO units are available in nine
different sizes, and in two colours (Sand or Green)] to suit
