​Maritime Barriers

Maritime Barriers engineered to deliver the exact protection and peace of mind your facility requires.

Protection from the unaware intruder to the most serious state sponsored terrorist

Maritime barriers are designed to be waterside security devices to blockade threats that can range from the innocuous unaware intruder to the most serious state sponsored terrorist operation intent on causing an international incident.

More Secure than the Competition

Maritime barriers come in all forms with most companies providing what is essentially a barrel strung together by cables which can be bought “by the foot”. At HALO, we design sophisticated but low-cost systems, like our double wall Guardian Gate modules for energy absorption to full automation for vessel access inside the barrier. Our designs are significantly safer to deploy and maintain than most. Designs for the most extreme harsh weather conditions are also available.

Maritime barriers have hundreds of applications but the most common are:

  • Military installations
  • Individual high value ship protection
  • Nuclear power plants
  • LNG loading facilities
  • Oil and Gas facilities
  • Port facilities
  • Dams

Navy maritime barriers are now in use by all the major western navies for protection of high value warships. HALO is setting the standard for the performance, ease of use, and low life cycle costs of these systems.
