HESCO, the leader in the design and manufacture of rapidly deployable force protection barriers, today announced the release of its new range of military and security products. The 2012 HESCO Mil® range of protective barriers provides a force protection system with an innovative new design feature that significantly increases the flexibility of the product, allowing it to be rapidly recovered after use.
Employing a quick release pin system that allows the barrier to be quickly emptied and efficiently packaged, the 2012 HESCO Mil unit can be easily removed from its deployed location when no longer required, and either disposed of responsibly, re-deployed elsewhere or stored for future use.
"We developed the 2012 HESCO Mil units with two of the military's important goals in mind– to be more environmentally responsible, and to be more cost-effective during the demilitarization stage of the mission" said Jake McQueen, Sales Manager at HESCO. "Not only is our new product capable of being redeployed when required, its ease of transportation means a fraction of the energy and resources, including the number of personnel and trucks, are needed to remove the previously installed barriers."
"The ability to quickly empty the barriers and pack them up is a great breakthrough in
force protection," said Jonathan Bird, HESCO Sales Director. "In addition to reducing the time and costs of leaving the conflict zone, the new design denies adversaries use of leftover barriers after the end of the mission."
HESCO has been the supplier of force protection barriers that protect and defend troops and facilities against enemy attacks since 1991, saving countless lives and mission critical assets. HESCO barriers are well-known and relied on by troops around the world to provide safety and protection in the most difficult locations. Acknowledged as the most significant development in field fortifications since the Second World War, HESCO products have become a key component and the benchmark in force protection throughout the world, and have been used in every major conflict since the first Gulf war.
Previous versions of HESCO barrier systems have required more extensive – and expensive – efforts for removal and have not been suitable for potential redeployment following use. To see the 2012 HESCO and a demonstration of the product, visit us at AUSA in the upper hall, Hall D, at booth #8137. Demonstrations will be held each day of the show at 10.30am.
