Small Craft Intrusion Barrier
The SCIB™ has unparalleled durability and has been designed for the most adverse marine conditions, including winds of 80+ knots. Loads are carried by stainless steel wire rope cables encased in 2 inch EPDM heavy wall flexible rubber tubing. These cables create a significant barrier to intrusions and/or entry by unauthorized, stray or threatening vessels. SCIB™ sections are typically constructed in 25’ lengths and sections are joined with Stainless Steel hardware.
The SCIB™ can be configured as a swinging gate with end point attachment slings to provide for an enclosed protected area with the possibility of opening the area immediately. By using a small craft of sufficient power the SCIB™ can be swung on a pivot point to allow for large craft to pass. In this way a base or facility can be completely enclosed and protected, but ready for the quick movement of large vessels, if conditions require. The SCIB’s™ modular construction allows for its use as a platform to mount a multitude of security technologies including warning signs, surface detection units, anti-intrusion instruments, swimmer detection devices and capture nets both on the surface and underwater.
