The 2015 Awards
Maritime Limited are the winners of the 2015 Horners Award for Plastics
Design and Innovation.
Piracy at sea has been a problem for hundreds of years. In
recent years, piracy has extended far off the Somali coast, into the Indian
Ocean and is now escalating on the West Coast of Africa, Indonesia and Central
Guardian Maritime Limited developed a new and deceptively simple
solution to the problem of unwanted boarding under sail, at anchor or in port.
Unlike razor wire, the GUARDIAN™ units are quick, simple
and safe to install. They are rotationally moulded in 1000mm wide sections that lock together – clamping
onto the safety rail to provide a strong and rigid structure.
Stevens, Owner and Designer of GUARDIAN said “I am very proud to have been
chosen for this award, being recognised by such an esteemed guild is a great
honour. I would like to thank all those who have helped with the development of
GUARDIAN including Paul Norman Plastics who guided me to the BPF website.
award was presented at Mansion House, by Guest of Honour Alderman Sir Michael
Bear who acted as Lord Mayor Locum Tenens.
