PROTECTIve SANGERS / DFPs


The BDS-1 Ballistic Defence Block is a quickly deployable ballistic wall that can provide instant protection from hostile fire with a tested containment capability of up to .50 calibre, including sniper rifles, tracer and Chinese A/P rounds.

The self interlocking modular construction means that it can be quickly configured to provide personal protective sangers, breastwork for gun pits and emplacements, and other defensive firing positions. The BDS-1 system requires no fill materials and does not absorb water making it a excellent replacement for the traditional sandbag in harsh operational locations, where ground is very hard, dry, icy, or waterlogged and suitable fill materials for sandbags are not available.  Being impervious it can also be used as a lining to hold back surface water run-off or seepage from scarps.

The BDS-1 is made with a unique polymer binder. The finished block has an elasticity
The BDS-1 block is easily configured for sangers or other defensive firing positions

from a non-biodegradable material, these self-healing blocks will far outlast any other ballistic defence structure on the market today so can be used as long term ballistic defence structures if requried.  The patented self-interlocking system requires no plastic links, clamps, adhesives or seals, and can be constructed as vertical or brick courses interlocking lengthwise and vertically for excellent strength and practically seamless fit. The modular system and ease of reconfiguration means the BDS-1 defence blocks can be reversed or repositioned to even out wear and tear, thus significantly increasing their effective lifespan. 

The BDS-1 block is container, truck and skylift friendly making it an ideal choice for front-line deployment where natural ground cover may be sparse or where a landing or drop zone requires a quickly deployable defensive screen.  This system is also ideal for navy or merchant marine use, where a shipboard protective sanger or redoubt can be used to cordinate defence or repulse operations against pirates.

The BDS-1 Ballistic Defence Block is manufactured to ISO:9000 compliance from 100% recycled vehicle tyres - as well as the standard 'tyre black' finish, the blocks can be produced in flat or mottled colours and disruptive patterns to suit specific theatre deployments.. Our design and manufacturing process is lean and very flexible, allowing a fast response to custom requirements for this and many other military ballistic containment needs (shown below).

Because our blocks are made from recycled vehicle tyres, the fulfillment of overseas government contracts may also be possible using Manufacture Under License arrangements. This may provide the additional benefit of being able to qualify for and utilise set-aside environmental funding, for the reduction of local tyre mountains.
