J&S Franklin has announced a further two contracts for the supply of nearly a kilometre of DefenCell Profile 300 to be installed at undisclosed Critical Infrastructures sites in the UK, providing discreet perimeter security and HVM protection.

J&S Franklin will exhibit DefenCell's wide range of capabilities at this year's Counter Terror Expo at Olympia.

DefenCell is a modular protection and construction system suitable for use in Security, Environmental and Military situations. The proven cellular design combined with the strong geotextile material provides structural integrity to its structures, offering a light weight, and compact solution to the protection of personnel and infrastructures from a variety of threats in a variety of situations:


DefenCell has been extensively tested for Homeland Security applications providing Critical Infrastructure Protection including perimeter security, vehicle barriers and inspection lanes as well as temporary or permanent barriers. Vehicle crash tests have highlighted the protective capabilities of DefenCell products to arrest vehicles and prevent secondary attack.

Environmental and Flood

DefenCell is environmentally neutral and completely non-metallic. Recent successes in large emergency Flood Protection projects have proven the versatility of the DefenCell cellular structure. The products are also ideal for ground stabilization, erosion control, bank reinforcement and various water protection applications.

Military Applications

DefenCell is being used to provide protection to troops at Camp Bastion and is ideal for a wide range of Military applications. Taking advantage of the small logistical burden of DefenCell's light weight and compact packaging, typical uses include protective walls, compartmentalization, entry control points and training operations. DefenCell can be filled with locally available materials; the system is modular in height and width allowing construction to meet the differing threat requirements. All parts are man portable and air droppable, facilitating deployment in hostile environments.

Military Logistics

DefenCell offers significant logistical advantages over other Expeditionary Force Protection systems. Highly efficient modular packaging reduces transport costs; cuts supply chain resources, and is up to ten times lighter and five times more compact than gabions. All components are man portable and easily deployed to remote and inhospitable locations.

J&S Franklin will be exhibiting at the Counter Terror Expo 2012, Olympia, in London from the 24th - 26th April 2012.
DefenCell can be seen in operation on Stand No F.36
