Keeping military, citizens and assets safe at home and abroad. Traditional and new systems used in innovative ways

Our expertise in gabions, soil reinforcement and natural hazard protection enables us to help clients protect what is important to them; military personnel, citizens or critical assets.

Flexible strength. Using our expertise in gabion mesh, we have developed a high quality cellular containment structure, Defencell MAC, to provide force protection against a range of ordnance, explosive and vehicle attack.

Available in a range of sizes, Defencell MAC can be rapidly deployed and filled on site with available fill material to provide a protective barrier. The units can be stacked to form taller structures, as needed, to protect bases, personnel, vehicles, and other infrastructure. The units are also used in civilian settings to protect buildings, infrastructure, and other locations at risk from attack.

Reinforcement. Additionally, Maccaferri geogrid reinforcement and geotextiles improve the performance of soft ground, stabilizing soils to enable the passage of heavy military vehicles.

Vehicle intrusion protection. Launched in April 2017, MacSafe™, is a new hostile vehicle incursion prevention system developed by Maccaferri in response to a need to upgrade security in public places. Consisting of high tensile steel cable fencing with integral energy absorption dissipaters the system offers high performance with low visual impact.

Technology transfer. The technology within our high strength systems used to mitigate the effects of natural hazards such as rockfalls and debris flows, can be transferred to the protection of critical infrastructure. High puncture resistance meshes, deployed around buildings such as power stations, can prevent damage from flying debris, or prevent other intrusion.
