GUARDIAN Rebranded under Guardian Maritime

The GUARDIAN brand of antipiracy barriers is restructured under a new company name. With immediate effect, GUARDIAN will now be provided by Guardian Maritime Limited.

In taking their whole operation back in-house the original inventors and owners, David and Teresa Stevens, plan to further expand the company, adding to the team and increasing worldwide representation as well as further developing a range of additional antipiracy products.

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.

Manufactured with UV protection, resistant to water and most chemicals (acids, alkalis, oils etc) and remaining robust over the temperature range experienced by vessels, it is ideally suited to a maritime environment. GUARDIAN’s sections are interchangeable between vessels, providing a strong and rigid structure, tailored to fit around fairleads and unique structures. Easy to use and far safer to handle than traditional razor wire for crew, GUARDIAN also saves operating costs by lasting three to five years and is recyclable.

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.

“GUARDIAN remains the original, best quality and only readily available product with a proven track record. It has a 100% success rate in protecting ships and rigs which is crucial for those ships operating in high risk areas.” said 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. 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 and only one product in production ready for the market.”

The success since its launch in 2012 is echoed by ship operators; “The GUARDIAN system is a perfect and cost effective way of refusing boarding to pirates and stowaways. After numerous and extensive tests we found the GUARDIAN system impregnable and effective. I highly recommend GUARDIAN for any Marine Company whether they be low and slow or high speed with freeboard,” said Rob Twell, Quality, Safety &Security Manager CMA CGM Group.

The new website is also launched today at www.guardian-maritime.com and is complimented by an active twitter featuring piracy news and comment.
