Guardian Maritime Limited- the only official manufacturer and supplier of GUARDIAN piracy barriers
With immediate effect, Guardian Maritime Limited are pleased to announce the patent licence for GUARDIAN™ piracy barriers has been granted, making Guardian Maritime Limited the only official global manufacturer and supplier of the product.
The first real alternative to razor wire, GUARDIAN works by covering a ship’s safety rails with a specially designed barrier. Once installed, GUARDIAN provides a highly visible, robust and simple way of making access to ship or rig virtually impossible.
Teresa Stevens, Director of Guardian Maritime Limited. “We are sadly aware that there are companies reportedly offering ship owners and operators an alternative, inferior product or indeed claiming to supply GUARDIAN. We are currently taking full legal action against such companies for infringement of design rights, patent and licenses. There is only one genuine GUARDIAN for ships, available via us directly or our authorised global agents only. Guardian Maritime Ltd has the only product in production ready for the market along with a team of highly trained and professional fitters working on-board vessels.”
The system is currently protecting some of the world’s biggest fleets including CMA-CGM, Maersk, BW Tankers as well as being used to protect offshore rigs and drilling ships. Not only combatting piracy but also safeguarding seafarers worldwide.
