Tunisia receives DefenCell MACs for border security

Posted 16 March 2017 · Add Comment

Over 900 units of the DefenCell MAC range of geotextile lined metal gabions have recently been delivered to the Tunisian authorities for deployment on the Tunisian Libyan border, which is part of Tunisia's ongoing efforts to enhance border security between the two countries.



DefenCell MAC gabions are filled with earth, sand or other locally available fill materials and provide ballistic protection, walls and HVM vehicle barriers and meet the exacting requirements of NATO and US DoD standards.

DefenCell MAC is constructed using the highest quality materials to established and tested standards by Maccaferri, the world's leading manufacturer of gabion structures, using heavily galvanised welded mesh panels and corner coils combined with a heavy-duty geotextile lining material created from UV resistant polymer fibre using the same advanced technology as the proven DEFENCELL fabrics.
