Eurosatory 2016: J&S Franklin Shows DefenCell Barriers

J&S Franklin DefenCell Barriers are a cellular, textile containment system that can be filled with various materials; soil, sand, gravel or small rocks, to build a wide variety of structures for perimeter security and HVM protection. According to the company, DefenCell Force Protection system offers enormous logistical advantages compared to other deployable systems. Up to ten times lighter and five times more compact than other gabions, DefenCell cuts delivery costs, uses less supply chain resources and is more effectively deployed to forward positions, the company says. All components are lightweight, easy to handle and man portable combined with modular packaging which gives significant improvements in storage and transport costs. All units are packed in standard pallets, 20 or 40 per ISO container and one 20’ ISO container will build a barrier more than 450 m long and 2.7 meters high.

DefenCell Barriers are displayed in hall 5 on stand #G880.
