METALITH: Aircraft Revetments


Infrastructure Defense Technologies designs and manufactures our METALITH line of K12-certified, high-quality, high-strength Military Aircraft Revetments. A revetment is a parking area for one or more aircraft that is surrounded by blast walls, which protect surrounding aircraft as well as the aircraft within the revetment. The blast walls around a METALITH Aircraft Revetment are designed to channel any potential damage up and away from aircraft.

Our METALITH revetments were designed and engineered with the understanding that they may have to be shipped rapidly, and by differing means of transport, so our knocked-down METALITH panels can ship by flatbed truck, railcar, ocean container, or air cargo – making them easy to transport anywhere. METALITH products are easily installed on-site requiring minimal installation training, and no tools, instructions, or hardware other than what is shipped with each complete system kit.
