J&S Franklin completes test of vehicle barrier system with TRL

London, UK

The recent terrorist attacks in Glasgow and London have once again highlighted the vulnerability of public and government buildings to vehicle mounted terrorist attacks. DefenCellT is a cellular, rapidly deployable barrier system that has recently completed successful testing by UK's Transport Research Laboratory (TRL) in vehicle crash tests, stopping a 7.5t truck.

"DefenCell is ideal for the protection of public buildings because it combines strength and stopping power with simplicity, versatility, ease and speed of deployment and a very low logistic footprint. The same system can be deployed in a wide variety of roles including flood barriers, force protection, construction and can be filled with locally available materials such as sand or earth" says Jeremy Milton of J&S Franklin.

DefenCellT provides a number of significant technical advantages, noticeably it is one man portable and deployable, its low weight and being non metallic, with no cages or hinges, there is no secondary shrapnel or communications interference.
