The bidding process for President Trump’s border wall has closed and there are some AMAZING designs! Several companies from around the United States submitted proposals.
We selected 5 of the best designs submitted. Check them out and let us know which one you like best in the comments!
#1) “Hadrian’s Wall”
Hadrian Construction Co., of Carlsbad, California designed this wall that would be made of a custom prefabricated product that could help keep costs down and speed up construction! Hadrian calls this the “tridipanel wall system” and says the alternating direction of the panels will give the wall extra strength. SOUNDS GOOD TO US!
#2) “Mesh Fencing”
This design is by Riverdale Mills of Northbridge, Massechussetts and consists of a “galvanized welded wire mesh called WireWall.” Riverdale Mills claims this product is nearly impossible to climb or cut through. Riverdale Mills is actually responsible for the CURRENT fencing between the U.S./Mexican border and plans to build the wall stronger and higher. Their design includes 6 feet below ground to block any tunnels, as well.
San Diego Project Management, PSC has submitted this design called “The Perch.” It is modeled after European medieval castles to have a walkway near the top to allow for border agents to see the Mexican side through eye-level ports.
#4) “One Way Visibility”
Penna Group of Forth Worth, Texas designed this wall called “One Way Visibility.” The design specifications call for a double wire mesh fence with a sheet of plexiglass lined with a one-way mirror. This would allow border patrol agents to be able to see the other side but not the other way around. Their design is 30 feet tall and extends to 6 feet underground. The wire mesh and plexiglass would be able to resist tools such as torches, pickaxes, and hammers for over an hour to allow for border agents to be able to descend on the culprits. The company notes that this current design is used in many prisons around the country.
#5) “Solar Panels”
The last design comes from Gleason Partners LLC of Las Vegas and includes a lot of solar panels to cover large sections of the wall. These panels would provide electricity needed for lighting, sensors and border patrol stations that would be set up along the wall. The company estimates the savings from electricity sales would cover the cost to build the wall in less than 20 years. Managing partner Thomas Gleason would “like the wall to be able to pay for itself.” Not a bad idea!
