Innovative New Design Allows Rapid Recovery
FORT LEONARD WOOD, Mo., April 16, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — HESCO®, the leader in the design and manufacture of rapidly deployable force protection barriers, today announced a new design feature that allows for rapid recovery of its military and security products. The 2012 range of Mil protective units provide 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 range of Mil units can be easily removed from its deployed location when no longer required, and disposed of responsibly.
“We developed the 2012 range of Mil units with two of the military’s important goals in mind– to be more cost-effective during the demilitarization stage of the mission, and to be more environmentally responsible ” said Jake McQueen, Sales Manager at HESCO. “Not only is our product now capable of being recovered when the mission requires, 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.
