The best in the business! Dave is a top bloke and a pleasure to deal with, responsive and always helpful. Had a ground anchor, chain and padlock at my door in a jiffy. The products themselves really are worth the money, their Apex Pro really is the dogs danglies. Would think any potential theif would get a sinking feeling once they see that in the ground!! Could not recommend more, putting some pennies away to hopefully get the crown jewel; their Guardsman Barrier!

The guardsman is a very robust, sturdy and secure security device. A great piece of mind for myself with regards to securing my motorcycle in my garage. Dave, constantly kept in contact to let me know when they would install the guardsman. Fitment was done quickly with no fuss at all.Great service.

Really easy guys to deal with and good piece of kit. Been looking at a barrier for a while but slightly put off by the cost. Saw it being demo'd at a show and took the plunge. Really happy. Very easy install job by their team. Piece of mind now the shed has some protection.

We couldn't be more pleased with our Guardsman, Defenders and Apex Pro ground anchors. The customer service from Image4 Security has been faultless throughout - from our initial inquiry, keeping us up-to-date on progress of our order. The guys arrived to fit our devices exactly on time, did the job brilliantly, were courteous and respectful, cleaned everything up afterwards and took plenty of time to check and explain the configuration. We would have no hesitation in ordering again from Image4 Security.

Had the pleasure of meeting these guys at the motorcycle live show, ordered a ground anchor with a chain, turned up to fit it, all done in 30 mins, cleaned up, product is great, no chance of anyone taking this bike in my opinion! Highly recommended

I’m very happy with my Guardsman with chain anchor installation, installed outside of my house rather than garage (which I don’t have!) to prevent anyone from easily rolling away with my bike during the night or when I’m out.This isn’t the designed use of the Guardsman and I’m very pleased to say that David and the team were very diligent in checking all details, customising the fitment and completing a very neat install. Used as I have chosen to, the Guardsman makes stealing my bike from my pathway a major challenge - hopefully enough to put off any attempts and certainly enough to make it very challenging indeed.The item is very well designed and made with many anti-theft features - from obstructing the area above the lock to prevent lock drilling to rounding off all the installation bolts so it can’t be loosened.Great and unique product, nothing else in the market is comparable.

My experience of dealing with Image4 Security when I purchased their Guardsman Security Barrier really could not have been better.The purchase process was slick, communication in terms of gathering the information that they required in order to prepare for installation was courteous and the installation itself was efficient and professional.The Guardsman Security Barrier itself is outstanding quality - a really impressive piece of kit which inspires confidence in the security of my garage.HIGHLY recommended!

No, it wouldn’t survive a grinder attack. But nor would any other security device. We don’t claim to be indestructible; no object is. If the thief wants something, they will find a way of getting it. With the Guardsman there are a much-reduced number of possible attack points and possible tools to be used due to the design.

Thieves don’t want to spend more than a few seconds trying to decipher how they are going to steal a bike. They want to be in, out and gone with as little effort and chance of being caught as possible.

They don’t want to be starting up a grinder and spending precious time cutting through security devices. They’d much rather go next door, where there’s an easier target. The sad reality is this is what security is all about, making you less attractive than something or someone else. And this is why the more layers you can have in place the better chance you have of not becoming another crime statistic.

Yes – it has been approved by BeMoto insurance company. As it’s such a new product we are working on having other insurers also approve it.

When you come to renewal, if you phone BeMoto and tell them you have a Guardsman in place they will give a discount on your renewal.

Ultimately the customer can decide where the Guardsman is installed, outside or in. However, we recommend that it is positioned on the inside of your garage, behind the garage pier/frame. The reason for this is that it does not advertise to the outside world that you have something to protect. The pier and garage frame make it extremely difficult for a thief to attack the barrier in this position. When in the upright, unlocked position it is very unobtrusive, taking up little floor space, maximising garage usable space and minimising trip hazards compared to conventional floor anchors and chains.

In response to expense – yes, it is a considerable amount of money but you are paying for quality, ease of use and peace of mind. The average bike insurance cost increases by £177 after having a bike stolen. Your car insurance also increases by £81. Therefore. by not having your bike stolen it has ‘paid for itself’ within 3 years.

Insurers say that you should spend 10% of your bikes value on security for it. The average bike costs roughly £10K-£15K. Therefore, bikers should be looking at a £1K-£1.5K investment in security to keep it safe.

We also offer Klarna and PayPal payment options which allow you to split your payments over 4 months.

Yes – We have an option of adding a ground anchor point to the Guardsman post. This gives that extra layer of security and can be used for other items such as push bikes, ladders etc.
The average weight of a bike is around 200kg. I think you’d want a team of guys to attempt to pick a bike up. Also, the height restriction of an up and over door means you can’t just lift it straight over the Guardsman garage barrier. The bike would need to be tipped on to its side and shuffled out, that’s if it is mathematically possible – this depends on your garage dimensions and size of your bike. Again, it’s more hassle and potential injury, then its worth.
The average bike width is 900mm with handle bars at full lock. The barrier sits 675mm from floor to underside of the arm. The average bike would not be pulled underneath.
We’ve had 3 blokes sitting on it and it didn’t compromise the structure. The bar probably moved a maximum of 50mm. The tubes are made from high grade, 3mm, stainless steel. They do not bend.

We fix each post into the floor using sleeve anchors with shear off nuts which leaves a permanent fixing in place. We also secure each post into the wall, if dimensions allow, which both helps to stabilize the arm post but also adds an additional point of fixing.

Yes, this is possible. We will need to come out to site and remove the fixings in order to remove the barrier. This requires specialist tools and equipment and would incur a cost. We would then be able to reinstall the barrier at your new location. Please contact us to discuss on 01384 442 646 or email us on
No problem at all. We have designed a bespoke solution for you. This would involve a double Guardsman barrier system meeting and locking in the middle of your garage into a removable centre post. Please contact us to discuss on 01384 442 646 or email us on
The standard Guardsman barrier has a maximum span of 2700mm. If you have a garage door opening width greater than this, we can manufacture a bespoke barrier to suit your garage. Please contact us to discuss on 01384 442 646 or email us on

Yes absolutely. Included in the package is a full set of install instructions as well as an install video, all fixings and a template to drill your floor holes. The install should take a competent DIY’er around 2 hours.

Tools required include:

SDS Drill and bits

Spirit Level and Tape Measure


19mm Spanner

Allen Key

Hole/Pipe Cleaner

Alternatively, you can leave the install to our expert team and we’ll take care of it for you. We travel the whole of the UK and the install takes around an hour to an hour and a half

Lead time for delivery and installation is 3-4 weeks from date of order. This is because we ensure that the Guardsman is suitable for your garage before proceeding to manufacture. If we need to make any slight adjustments, we make these free of charge once your order has been placed.
Our team of installers travel the whole of the UK.
We offer as standard, Midnight Black and Graphite Grey. If you would like a custom colour option, we can arrange this for you, please get in touch. We can also offer custom paint designs.
Yes absolutely. The Guardsman alarm system operates on a vibration sensor so if anyone touches your Guardsman, the vibration sensor is triggered which sets off the 130dB siren. While this is shrieking the alarm hub is secretly phoning up to 3 pre-programmed phone numbers.
The only required maintenance is to keep the garage barrier arm clean and free from dust and debris. We recommend for optimal performance cleaning this once every 2 weeks. If your garage is particularly dusty increase this frequency to suit.

We have a simple 5 step order process:

  1. Make your Guardsman barrier purchase. Decide on colour, anchor points, accessories, install or delivery.
  2. Image4Security will then contact you asking for some measurements and pictures of your garage.
  3. Image4Security will then decide whether any adjustments need to be made to your Guardsman. This will be completed free of charge and agree on the positioning of the anchor point.
  4. Image4Security will then manufacture your Guardsman barrier.
  5. Once complete Image4Security will then agree a convenient install date or arrange for your Guardsman to be delivered.
