PIRACY STOPS HERE
WHAT IS DFENCE?
It is the ultimate rail-mounted anti-piracy security barrier.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
It stops pirates and other attackers exploiting unprotected safety rails
to gain easy access to the decks of ships, oil rigs and other marine installations.
HOW DOES IT DO IT?
Its unique “knuckles” and “blades” profile prevents ladders, poles and other improvised climbing apparatus being lent against or hooked onto the safety rails. It protrudes outboard of the safety rails creating a substantial obstacle to climbing from below.
HOW GOOD IS IT?
Independently tested in Denmark by ex-special forces personnel, the team concluded:
DFENCE is a significant barrier against unwanted boarding.- Norman Kristiansen CEO, Guardian-srm
It is robust, well-constructed, impossible to tear down and difficult to climb over.
It is the best system we have tested to date.

WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE ON A SHIP?
12 REASONS WHY YOU’LL LIKE IT
It’s simple and quick to fit, unfit and refit
It’s safe to handle
Nests on standard 1000mm x 1200mm pallets
for optimum storage when not in use
Light and super-tough, the weight of the modules has been kept as low as possible without compromising strength and rigidity
As a modular system it will fit readily in the way of fairleads, mooring chocks and accommodation ladders, as well as go around corners
Designed to accommodate different heights of fish plate and the variances in distance between fishplate and railings
Will not trap water on deck
No components that will rust or rot, reducing significantly the costs of replacement modules and fixings
Rotational moulded in UV15 high density polyethylene (HDPE), a material known for its toughness, rigidity and anti-weathering properties
Manufactured in safety orange as standard, to make a highly visual statement of security hardening, but can be custom-manufactured in a wide range of colours
High quality manufacturing
If attackers cannot board a ship they cannot hijack it.BMP
