Military Barriers/Hesco Bastions
The QIAOSHI’s Military Barriers or Hesco Bastions is a modern gabion used for flood control and military fortification. It is made of a collapsible wire mesh container and heavy duty fabric liner,barbed wire mesh, and used as a temporary to semi-permanent dike or barrier against blast or small-arms. One of the less heralded life- and labor-saving devices of war,钢筋焊接网,Clearing Up The Rubbish-metal wire mesh, it is used on nearly every United States Military base in Iraq as well as on NATO bases in Afghanistan.
Assembling the Hesco Bastion entails unfolding it and (if available) using a front end loader to fill it with sand,钢格板吊顶,Flood prevention the easy way-hesco barrier, dirt or gravel. The placement of the barrier is generally very similar to the placement of a sandbag barrier or earth berm except that room must generally be allowed for the equipment used to fill the barrier. The main advantage of Military Barrier,Military Bastion, strongly contributing to their popularity with troops and flood fighters,buy fiberglass mesh, is the quick and easy setup. Previously,Geotextiles, people had to fill sandbags,gabion basket, a slow undertaking,gabiony basket, with one worker filling about 20 sandbags per hour. Workers using Military Barrier and a front end loader can do ten times the work of those using sandbags.
The Hesco Barrier come in a variety of sizes. Most of the barriers can also be stacked,stainless steel mesh, and they are shipped collapsed in compact sets. Example dimensions of typical configurations are 46″ x 36″ x 32 (1.4m x 1.1m x 9.8m) to 7 x 5 x 100 (2.1m x 1.5m x 30m).
A new system of Hesco Bastion developed specially for military use is deployed from a container,hexagonal wire mesh, which is dragged along the line of ground where the barrier is to be formed,Windows Screen, unfolding up to several hundred meters of barrier in minutes,水沟盖板, ready for filling with soil by a backhoe.
Filled with sand,Cattle Fence, 60 centimetres (24 inches) of barrier thickness will stop rifle bullets and shell fragments. It takes 1.5 metres (five feet) of thickness to prevent penetration by a rocket propelled grenade round. Approximately 1.2 metres (four feet) of thickness provides protection against most car bombs.
