J&S Franklin announced today a further contract to supply DefenCell Profile 300 to an as yet undisclosed Critical Infrastructure in the UK.
The J&S Franklin DefenCell Profile300 Protection System was developed from DefenCell, the unique Force Protection System that is currently in operational deployment in Afghanistan with the British Army, in Chad with the Irish Defence Force and a number of US bases.
The DefenCell Profile 300 is a geotextile, cellular, containment system which, when filled with locally sourced or selected fill materials, can be used to create a wide variety of unobtrusive specific barrier shaped and sized structures and is a perfect solution for offering inconspicuous protection to public buildings, perimeter security and HVM protection and for use in environmentally and visually sensitive locations as it can be grassed or planted, enabling it to blend quickly into the surroundings whilst providing proven substation protection from terrorist attack or environmental threats.
It is its cellular design that not only provides strength but also makes it more flexible for the design and construction of protection systems. It can be cut and shaped as needs require without losing any of its inherent strength or integrity, and can be driven on by heavy machinery right from laying the first layer, meaning it can be driven on during filling.
The same system can be deployed in a wide variety of roles, including ground stabilisation, construction access, barriers, flood barriers, and protection of critical infrastructure sites.
DefenCell PROFILE 300 is currently protecting several other critical infrastructure sites within the United Kingdom.
