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.
HESCO® earth-filled MIL® units have been used around the world to create barriers for perimeter protection, construct temporary accommodation, and provide high level security control.
HESCO MIL units have become a prominent component and benchmark within worldwide force protection and have been used by military organisations including the US Army, UK MOD, USMC, USAF, and NATO in every major conflict since the first Gulf war, saving countless lives and mission critical assets.
The Concertainer™ MIL unit is a multi-cellular barrier system lined with heavy-duty, non-woven polypropylene geotextile and manufactured from welded Zinc-Aluminium coated steel mesh.
The unique design, strength and versatility enable easily-constructed corners, and when joined and filled the system will shape the defensive barrier to the surrounding landscape, creating barriers of exceptional strength and structural integrity.
Whether used as a protective barrier or to define boundaries, HESCO MIL units have been employed to safeguard equipment, facilities, vehicles, personnel and critical assets in a variety of operations such as military, peacekeeping, humanitarian and civilian.
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.
HESCO Accommodation Bunkers (HAB) are specially engineered shelters for personal protection, command stations to in-field medical centres, and overhead protection for ammunition stores.
The HAB range of products provide both side and overhead blast and fragmentation protection, and easy to build with minimal manpower and equipment.
The shelters will house up to eight personnel providing a safe haven in remote and harsh environments, such as Forward Operating Bases, Company Outposts and remote industrial facilities.
The Lightweight Bunker Roof (LWBR) specifically designed to provide protection against indirect fire. The roof can be built on almost any wall capable of taking the load that the roof will impose upon it.
The structure can provide collective protection, for living accommodation, field hospitals, safe houses or overhead cover for ammunition and fuel stores.
The HESCO Guard Post kit allows assembly of a small emplacement with two-foot thick walls and 18in (0.48m) of overhead cover. Observation point forms are included in the set as are roof joists and roofing material.
Ground mounted and elevated sangars
The Ground Mounted Sangar and Elevated Sangars are modular units comprising of our earth-filled protective units and alloy components supplied by Brand Energy Infrastructure Services.
Rapid deployment for HESCO MIL units
RAID is a rapid delivery system, designed and engineered for the deployment of HESCO MIL units.
More than 1,000 feet of MIL 7 can be deployed in under 60 seconds, creating curves and corners and shaping a perimeter wall to the surrounding landscape.
High-level security fences
HESCO security barriers are engineered to provide a rapidly deployed high-level security fence for the protection of critical infrastructure and assets.
Combining the central concept of the Concertainer system, these fences are ground-mounted and proven to withstand vehicle borne attacks.
Each model is ground mounted, can be built on undulating or sloping ground and available in heights up to 5m (16in), creating a formidable barrier.
American-made, thinner, lighter and concealable ballistic-resistant body specially engineered to protect law enforcement, military and private security personnel.
Using next generation composite materials, combined with Hesco Armor state-of-the-art processing techniques, we give every end-user the capability to take advantage of weight savings with no compromise in operational protection.

The Next Threat in Event Security: Guarding Against the ‘Lone Wolf’ With the threat of 'lone wolf' terror attacks rising, the need for perimeter security is now paramount.
How Evolving Terror Tactics Have Driven Advances in Perimeter Security Many urban threats used to be seen, at least in the eyes of the public, as things that happened on other shores. However, an increase in urban attacks of late has put pressure on security services to come up with innovative solutions that allow business to continue as normal and the public to enjoy some peace of mind.
