1. The hesco barrier or hesco bastion is a modern gabion for Military fortification and Flood control. It is made of a collapsible wire mesh container and heavy duty fabric liner, and used as a temporary blast orsmall-arms barrier. One of the less heralded life- and labor-saving devices of war.
3. Assembling the HESCO bastion entails unfolding it and fill it with sand, dirt or gravel. The main advantage of HESCO barriers, strongly contributing to their popularity with troops and flood fighters, is the quick and easy setup. Previously, people had to fill sandbags, a slow undertaking, with one worker filling about 20 sandbags per hour. Workers using HESCO barriers and a front end loader can do ten times the work of those using sandbags.
4. The HESCO barriers come in a variety of sizes. Most of the barriers can also be stacked, and they are shipped collapsed in compact sets.
