Geobrugg, an operating company of the Swiss BRUGG Group, announced the launch of the FOXX floating boat barrier.
FOXX contributes to eliminate some of the water side security gaps by closing the waterside access or setting up a temporary restricted area. The FOXX floating barrier will stop all types of speedboat-launched attacks thanks to the doubled MAXX spiral rope net:
Alternatively, fixed boat barriers may be attached to existing structures or driven piles. High-tensile SATURN nets from Geobrugg are fixed to the piles, without resorting to a wear-intensive floating construction.
The protection system can span widths of up to 60 m, sustain large tidal differences and be resistant to wind, currents and corrosion (seawater). Such fixed security barriers are e.g. in use in the very tough environment of the Persian Gulf since 2005.
