A hesco barrier may also referred to as a hesco bastion, hesco defence wall, sand cage, welded gabion box and so on. It is a prefabricated, multi-cellular system, made of zinc coated steel and welded mesh and lined with a non-woven geo-textile.
Hesco barriers are used for military fortification and flood control. For military purposes, some gabion hesco barriers can stop rifle bullets, shell fragments and other shrapnel. When used for flood protection, gabion hesco barriers can be assembled quickly.
