Guardian Product Details


GUARDIAN™ is a fit once defence system!

GUARDIAN™ works by covering the ship’s safety rails with a specially designed barrier. Once installed, GUARDIAN™ provides a robust way of denying access to the ship / rig, annually protecting $ 80 Trillion of assets.

Extensive research has been carried out to achieve the ultimate profile and composition for GUARDIAN™. A roofing ladder cannot take hold and, even if a grappling hook managed to gain purchase somewhere on the deck, the profile of the GUARDIAN™  makes it virtually impossible to climb over.

GUARDIAN™ is manufactured by one of the world’s leading manufacturers of plastic products. The units are designed with a high level of UV protection, are resistant to a wide range of chemicals (acids, alkalis, oils etc), and will remain robust over the temperature range experienced by vessels. The polymer does not absorb water, so is ideally suited to a maritime environment.

GUARDIAN™ is manufactured in 1000mm wide sections that lock together – clamping onto the safety rail to provide a strong and rigid structure.  During installation, GUARDIAN™ units are tailored to fit around fairleads and unique structures. A single unit or section can be removed or refitted in minutes, for operations such as mooring or vessel maintenance.

Guardian has now been in service protecting Maersk Line and CMA CGM ships for eight years. At an average cost of protecting the poop deck area of a container ship of £6,000 the daily cost is £2.35 pence per day.

Advantages of using GUARDIAN™:

  • Easy to install
  • Provides a ‘sight’ barrier, offering crew a level of invisibility on deck
  • Highly visible deterrent
  • Easily swapped between vessels
  • Safe for the crew to handle and reduces installation time
  • Recyclable units made from High Density Polyethylene Metallocene
