How it Works

HALO Security Barriers work by transferring kinetic energy to stop the boat.  The barrier, not the boat, is allowed to deform quickly which keeps the reaction forces relatively low.  When a boat strikes the face of our barrier the resulting friction or kinetic energy is transferred behind the row and as a result, our energy-absorbing barrier can survive much higher velocities than a rigid barrier.

The Sentinel Static Defensive Barrier is a double wall, catamaran style design with multiple rows of structure, interchangeable components, and increased hydrodynamic stability.

The barrier is composed of rows of polyethylene panels which are eco-friendly, and marine-grade materials that can withstand heavy sea states. It can be moored into any bottom type. The barrier stands approximately two meters above the waterline. The flotation elements are optimized to fully support the system in a variety of wave and  current levels, yet minimize the draft and hydrodynamic loads associated with large projected areas below the water surface. All polyethylene components are foam filled to provide reserve buoyancy in the unlikely event a section of the barrier is compromised.
