IDEF 2017: Accordion Barrier Systems by Alp Defence
At IDEF 2017, the Turkish company Alp Defence presents its accordion barrier systems, defense barriers used in various configurations for the purpose of protecting against threats and attacks. They consist of multichamber units that are connected side-by-side, as well as on top of one another by means of special springs, for use in both military and civilian contexts.

These folding systems are delivered in a flat-packed form. Once the units are extended and arranged, they are filled with suitable materials (such as rocks, debris, sand, gravel, or soil) so that they do not overflow and then they are turned into barriers that are stronger than walls.

The accordion barrier systems have a simple structure that can be handled and installed easily. They require minimum labor and can be used for an extended period of time.

They are used safely by troops that are deployed on the terrain for the protection of staff centers and important buildings, ammunition and critical equipment warehouses, fuel units, surveillance, guard and control points, as well as defense firing positions, as an environmental security, defense, and equipment guard wall.

Their light and incapacious structure provides ease of handling and transportation, while their installation requires little labor, thus providing time-saving.

The accordion barrier system can be strengthened by being surrounded with an optional wire fence. It has been used successfully, especially by NATO and the military institutions of several countries since the Gulf War in 1991, such as the Turkish Armed Forces.

Alp Defence is a Turkish company founded in 2013.
