A sand gabion is a defensive barrier made from welded wire mesh and filled with sand. Designed to protect military installations, personnel, and valuable equipment from enemy fire, blast, and fragmentation ordnance.
The gabion walls can be quickly assembled and disassembled as needed, making them a flexible and portable defence solution. Sand is used as the filling material because it is readily available in most environments and is an efficient medium at absorbing the impact of projectiles and explosions.
The gabion walls can be stacked in layers or arranged in various configurations to form different shapes and sizes of barriers. Sand gabions have been used in recent conflicts such as the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and have proven to be an effective and versatile defensive solution in both urban and rural environments.
Kit contains parts to make 10 high and 10 short sand gabions.
