GARAGE SECURITY THE WAY IT SHOULD BE…

The Guardsman is a completely unique garage barrier and anchor system that offers the ultimate deterrent to would be thieves.

The Guardsman garage security bar is not only an impactive visual deterrent, but is specifically engineered to withstand every form of attack.

From insanely strong ground fixings through to the anti-attack lock and housing, we have taken everything we could think of and had a proper go at breaking this beast.

Not content with only deterring thieves from sliding bikes under, or lifting over, we have added anchor points to the posts so that bikes and other valuable machines can be shackled to them.

guardsman Accessories:

GUARDSMAN CHAIN ANCHOR POINT…

For that extra layer of security why not add a Guardsman chain anchor point to one or both of your Guardsman posts. This allows you to secure your bike wheel or any other object, using a chain and padlock, to the anchor.

The anchor itself has a diameter opening of 60mm and is 12mm in thickness. It is secured at the base of your post using two bolts with ball bearings in the heads.

The Guardsman chain anchor point can be easily retro fitted to your Guardsman security barrier if your circumstances change in the future.

GUARDSMAN ALARM SYSTEM…

Add that extra layer of security with the Guardsman alarm system.

The alarm system uses a vibration sensor which is housed in the protective secure mounting which is fixed to the front of the locking post leg. If someone tampers with your Guardsman barrier arm, this will trigger the vibration sensor and activate the 130dB battery powered siren which will be fixed into your garage roof. The alarm hub will then secretly call up to 3 pre-programmed phone numbers alerting you to the disturbance.

The alarm system comprises of a battery powered hub and vibration sensor enclosed in a protective secure mounting. 1 x 130dB battery powered siren and 2 x battery powered key fobs. SIM card and batteries also included.

Additional sensors also available: PIR, Door Sensor, Additional Key Fobs and Sirens can also be added. The hub can have up to 20 active sensors programmed into it at any one time.
Sleep better at night with the ultimate garage security system.

GUARDSMAN SECURITY CHAIN…

The Guardsman security chain is made from hardened, 80% carbon steel which makes it incredibly resistant to grinder attack. The chain is impervious to HSS hacksaw attacks and the 16 and 20mm cannot be bolt cropped by hand. It has been fully through hardened making it the best chain range on the market for security.

The perfect additional layer to protect your pride and joy.

In short no, the Guardsman garage security barrier will not survive a grinder attack. Having said that, nor would any other security device on the market. The reality is that a grinder will cut through any material regardless of thickness, molecular structure, hardness and any other claims. Unfortunately, the grinder is king when it comes to cutting security devices of any sort. In our experience and research, this isn’t something openly expressed by anyone within the security sector, possibly because of the lower-than-expected times it actually takes to cut through objects with a grinder. Having said that, the grinder does make an awful lot of noise and it does take time to cut through any device, especially the Guardsman, as it’s made from high-grade stainless steel across its barrier arm, it’s commonly presumed, weakest point. 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. You also have an additional layer/s (anchor point) of security which is simple and easy to use which the thief has to beat in order to take your pride and joy. The more layers you can have, the better chance you have of keeping your bike.
Any item can be cut with a grinder. Therefore, you could argue, well what is the point of having any security in place? 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. Statistics: • There is a 3.3% chance your motorbike will be stolen in any given year. • 1 in 7 vehicles stolen are motorbikes. • 43% of rider don’t use any security – Bennetts Insurance.
Yes – the Guardsman garage security barrier 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 makes 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 the door means you can't just lift it straight over the Guardsman garage barrier. The bike would need to be tipped onto 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, than it's 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.
The Guardsman garage security barrier is fixed into the ground by 4 sleeve anchors with shear off nuts. The shear off nuts 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 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 support@image4security.com
No problem at all. We have designed a bespoke solution for you. This would involve a double Guardsman garage security 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 support@image4security.com
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 support@image4security.com
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 – 12⌀ and 16⌀ • Spirit Level and Tape Measure • Metal detector 100mm depth • Vacuum • 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 of the Guardsman garage security barrier 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 garage security barrier, 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 alarm system can be ordered at the same time as your barrier or retro fitted at a later date.
The only required maintenance is to keep the Guardsman garage security 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 also recommend on a 3-month basis, lubricating the arm tubes with a spray of WD40 silicone spray. This is to ensure the tubes are well lubricated for a smooth action.
We have a simple 5 step order process: 1. Make your Guardsman barrier purchase. Decide on colour, anchor points, accessories, installation 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 on a convenient install date or arrange for your Guardsman to be delivered.
There are many ways a similar level of security can be achieved but many, like the one described above, are not practical. What use is having a whopping scaffold pole knocking around or any other device? What if you end up scratching your bike with it? The Guardsman is simple and easy to use, operating in seconds. Convenient.
