The floating anti-diversion barrier is intended to enclose elements of coastal critical infrastructures, port entrances and ships at anchor or at piers.
The purpose of the barrier is to damage the underwater part of high-speed boats with rubber, plastic or wooden hull through rotating and fixed blades (knives) which penetrate and break down the vessel’s bottom.
The floating anti-diversion barrier consists of interconnected cylindrical bodies with tubular rods. The rods are connected to a swivel in order to compensate the deflection of the barrier in rough seas. Both ends of the barrier are anchored and/or fastened to the shore.
The bodies are made of fiberglass and filled with polyurethane foam which makes them unsinkable and provides additional mechanical strength. The bodies have built-in fittings of fastened blades. The ends of each body are connected with flanges for attachment of the rods so they can freely rotate round longitudinal axis.
