Fortifying posts and protecting warfighters from bullets and bomb blasts is easier, faster and more reliable than ever thanks to McCurdy’s Armor, a portable armored-wall system that snaps together quickly without tools, while offering greater protection than sandbags.
This high-tech system—made by Dynamic Defense Materials LLC of Marlton, NJ—consists of aluminum frames that unfold and connect together with steel pins. Because it’s a modular system, the size and configuration of the wall can be tailored for height, width and multiple corners, or to fully enclose spaces. In other words, the structure could resemble a podium or telephone booth, or a basic 8-foot wall 100 feet in length.
Once they’ve arranged the frames into a design fitting the site and strategy, warfighters attach armor panels in a fraction of the time needed for sandbagging. The panels can be attached to one side or both sides of the frames, depending on how much protection is needed.
