HESCO unveils new Mil unit design features

18th April 2012 - 14:49 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


HESCO has unveiled 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.

According to the company, by employing a quick release pin system that allows the barrier to be quickly emptied and efficiently packaged, the 2012 range of Mil unit can be easily removed from its deployed location when no longer required, and disposed of responsibly.

The company said the new design was motivated by the need to be more cost-effective during the demilitarization stage of the mission, as well as being environmentally responsible. The new design also denies adversaries use of leftover barriers after the end of the mission.

Jake McQueen, Sales Manager at HESCO, said, ‘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.’
