Hesco barrier is gabion-like. It is a combination of welded wire mesh frame outside and non-woven geotextile
liner inside. Sand, soil, gravel and blinding are frequently used as filling because of geotextile liner.
Gabion bastions are mainly used in military and flood control for its modular structure and quick setup. For military, a gabion Hesco with 24 inches thickness can stop rifle bullets, shell fragments and other shrapnel. While for flood protection, gabion Hesco can be assembled soonest and come into use.
HESCO products have been used in many countries around the world including Afghanistan, Iraq, Bosnia, Kosovo, Yemen, Sri Lanka, Jordan, UAE and Turkey. Most military organizations currently use HESCO products including the US Army, UK MOD, USMC, USAF and NATO.

HESCO Technical Information
1. HESCO Blast Wall
HESCO Blast Wall (also named HESCO bastion, HESCO barrier) has been on hand to aid civil engineers with a wide range of environmental issues for over 10 years. Originally designed to combat the effects of coastal erosion, HESCO Bastion Container has since been used extensively throughout the world for other civil engineering applications.
The versatility of a HESCO Barrier Container structure enables it to be used across a variety of applications such as coastal erosion, flood protection, river and bank stabilisation, retaining walls, land reinforcement and soil conservation.
A galvanized steel unit lined with geotextile fabric, HESCO Barrier Concertainer is completely assembled during manufacture, ensuring rapid installation. Available in a wide range of sizes, units can be joined and extended using the provided joining pins. The primary advantage of the product is its ability to utilise locally available fill material to rapidly construct walls and other structures with minimal manpower and resources.
2. HESCO Container
The Container unit is a multi-cellular wall system manufactured from welded Zinc-Alu coated steel wire mesh and joined with vertical, helical coil joints. The units are lined with heavy-duty non-woven polypropylene geotextile.
The Container unit's primary advantage over other force protection systems is its ability to utilize locally available fill material to rapidly construct defensive barriers and other structures with minimal manpower and resources.
Units can be extended and joined together to provide effective and economical structures tailored to the specific threat and level of protection required. Container units are available in a variety of different sizes and delivery systems.
Hesco barrier structure
Similar to beehive, Hesco barrier is comprised of external welded gabion and interior fabric liner. Its content includes soil, sand or little stone. The line would be yellow, grass green or other colors which blends well with the surroundings.
Joining pins are supplied to join units together. Plastic ties are supplied to close the geotextile together at the top of unit ends, which prevents fill material from falling between unit joints.
Geotextile lined welded wire fabric gabion to ASTM A 974-97.
Welded Mesh, coils and pins
The Concertainer units are manufactured with a Alu-Zinc coated welded wire mesh. The mesh has a spacing of 3" x 3" and a wire gauge of 8.5 American SWG, steel/diameter of 0.155"/3.937mm (nominal).
The geotextile is a heavy-duty, non-woven, permeable, polypropylene fabric, available in either green or sand color.
