J & S Franklin are pleased to announce that following successful blast
tests at this years Force Protection Equipment Demonstration (FPED), in the

This order will be made and delivered from the DefenCell plant in

Defencell is a cellular rapidly deployable force protection system that can
be used in a wide variety of military and civil defence roles. These
include walls, sangars, bunkers, roadways, vehicle barriers and flood
protection.

Protection Systems, noticeably, it is one-man portable and deployable, its
weight, (being up to 10 times lighter than comparable products), it
requires 5 times less transport volume, and being non-metallic, with no
cages or hinges there is no secondary shrapnel.

DefenCell is also made in the UK, and is already in service with The
British Army in Afghanistan.
