Fiberweb Launches New Website to Showcase Defencell Force Protection Systems
Web 2.0-based DefencellUSA.com highlights how this high performance, 100% fabric ballistic and blast barrier can help improve logistics and safety for all US military branches.
This lightweight, 100% fabric system features a self-stabilizing honeycomb design that eliminates the need for heavy metal wires or hard plastic that can take up space during delivery. The new website provides an interactive catalog and product comparisons that demonstrate how these weight savings can translate to safer delivery capabilities and reduced risk of secondary fragmentation.
“Unlike traditional wire gabion baskets, the Defencell Force Protection System is compact, lightweight and durable, providing a smaller logistical footprint,” said Kim Tully, Defencell Field Engineer. “The website provides comprehensive resources that clearly outline the delivery benefits of the Defencell system. Whether air-dropping, sling loading, driving over rough terrain or hand carrying, the system is ideally suited for mission critical deliveries to every corner of the battlefield.”
Site visitors can view detailed product information, videos, product applications, and technical specifications. The site also allows commanders and field engineers to download detailed CAD models and installation guides, view side-by-side barrier system comparisons and performance data, order product samples and schedule on-site product demonstrations.
Made in the USA and extensively field tested worldwide, the Defencell Force Protection System is available in four interlocking units that provide effective ballistic, blast, and crash protection. Defencell units meet the testing requirements set forth by the Army Research Laboratory (ARL) as determined by the Engineer Research and Development Center US Army Corps of Engineers (ERDC).
