ARX Maritime have designed an anti-piracy barrier to prevent pirates boarding your vessel. The ARX anti-boarding and climbing barrier repels grappling hooks and ladders, significantly increasing the chances of your vessel and crew surviving a pirate attack. The system is easily installed and provides a cost-effective alternative to razor wire.
