POLMIL™ fencing is designed and manufactured by Blok N Mesh UK Ltd – supplier of perimeter security fencing (Olympic Venues) to the London 2012 Olympic Games, DSEI in London for the last two years and the 2013 Counter terrorism show. This very capable on-ground system is highly suited to protecting temporary perimeters and sensitive areas of high profile events and important construction sites where an alternative to post-in-ground fencing is preferred, or a ‘no dig’ policy is in force for safety reasons.

Every site presents a fence line with different challenges and obstacles to overcome. The POLMIL™ system is modular, and sufficiently flexible to maintain seamless security integrity whether deployed on undulating parkland, angular urban streets or sandy beaches. POLMIL™ systems have been rigorously tested, utilised, and proven compatible, with leading CCTV and Perimeter Intruder Detection Systems (PIDS) on multiple global event venues.

These products are great for keeping personnel cool in extreme conditions.

The combination of unique fabrics creates a water management system. The unique HyperKewl Cooling fabric absorbs, stores and releases water within the multi-layered material. Water is released through evaporation, energy is consumed, and a chill effect is created.

The HyperKewl Cooling fabric actually cools the body exactly the same way the body cools itself through evaporation. When the vests are worn over a shirt or uniform - undergarments will remain dry due to the waterproof lining. The item will start cooling immediately and will stay cool for up to 4-10 hours depending on the airflow.
