J&S Franklin will demonstrate the total protection capability of DefenCell at Counter Terror Expo 2015

J&S Franklin will be demonstrating the total protection capability of the full range of DefenCell modular protection and construction systems on Stand No G83, at Counter Terror Expo, London on 21st and 22nd April 2015

On display will be;

DefenCell Profile 300

DefenCell Profile 300 Protection System is the latest development in the DefenCell range. It is 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.

Profile 300 has been designed specifically for inconspicuous deployment at public buildings. It is ideally suited for airports and other critical infrastructure, particularly in environmentally and visually sensitive locations where it can be easily grassed or planted, and quickly blends into the surroundings whilst still providing a proven protection from terrorist attack and environmental threats.


DEFENCELL MAC is the new range of protective welded mesh metal gabions, lined with geotextile and supplied in several standard sizes that can be filled with locally available materials such as earth, or sand to provide ballistic protection, blast mitigation and HVM vehicle barriers. MAC can also be used for environmental applications and is ideal for flood protection.

DEFENCELL MAC gabions are supplied pre-assembled and folded for shipping and are easy to deploy by pulling open, positioning and filling.

A contract for the supply of DefenCell MAC gabion barriers to meet the DLA Expeditionary Barrier System (EBS) requirement has recently been secured. The indefinite duration/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract is for a potential maximum value of $500,000,000 and has been awarded by Defence Logistics Agency Troop Support in Philadelphia, USA. DLA Troop Support annually manages over $13 billion worth of food and equipment supplies in support of America's warfighters worldwide.

The New range of Archer Portable Vehicle Barriers from Meridian Rapid Defense (MRDG) Group

Archer Portable Vehicle Barriers offer a complete range of “Drop and Stop” Modular Barrier Systems that are engineered for speed of deployment, retrieval and relocation making them ideal for Emergency Response Kits (ERK’s) and temporary physical security requirements. Simple to deploy with no electrics or hydraulics needed, and easy to install with just two people, the Archer Portable Vehicle Barriers are ideal for crowd control, conferences, large events and critical infrastructure protection. Manufactured from dual-wall, high strength bullet-resistant ballistic rated steel, the Archer also provides ballistic and HVM protection.

Securiscape Planters and Street Furniture

For use in Homeland Security applications this range of PAS68 tested planters and street furniture has been installed at critical infrastructure sites in London and the UK as well as on the Olympic site. The system has an engineered steel interior that will stop a truck and can be covered with decorative and practical finishes in steel, timber, stone or even bronze. Installation is quick and easy being surface mounted with only 150mm ground fixings. Planting with anything from flowers to trees, the integral watering system needs minimal maintenance.

DefenCell LITE and RANGER

These versions of DefenCell Force Protection Systems offer lightweight infantry protection through individual tactical emplacement.

Both Systems are easily stored and moved, and have a low pack volume.

An unfilled LITE unit fits in the same space as a full sandbag, and when filled that same unit will make a wall section 3.2m long, 0.6m high and 0.6, wide, the equivalent of 90 sandbags.

The RANGER is a shorter version of the proven LITE with the same strong cellular construction and durable materials. It weighs just 1.4kg and can be filled by hand in less than 10 minutes; however it is the equivalent of over forty sandbags and ideal for infantry use.

The 0.60m thickness of the Ranger and LITE provides ballistic protection against weapons up to .50cal and 14.5mm

DefenCell Flood Protection

Tested by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and proven in action DefenCell is an effective and easily installed Flood Protection Barrier.

A simple 0.5m to 1m high wall will be sufficient to stop all but the most extreme flooding.

Testing has shown DefenCell to be many times faster to install than sandbags, and much easier to remove when the threat has passed.

DefenCell products have been extensively tested and proven to protect against, vehicle attack, ballistic threats, and blast mitigation. They are protecting several critical infrastructure sites in the UK, and are in operational deployment in Afghanistan, Chad and several US Bases.
