9 NavGuard Benefits

By choosing Navgard™ you get more benefits than you would from any other BNWAS on the market. Here are the top 6 benefits to you:

1) Approved By All Major Classification Societies

Navgard™ is the world’s first and only BNWAS system approved by all major classification societies. This means that if your fleet has ships of different class, you have no need to worry about the risk of a classification society rejecting equipment that is approved by another society or incurring additional certification costs that can be more than the cost of the equipment itself.

Navgard™ is approved by the following Classification Societies:

  • ABS
  • Bureau Veritas
  • China Classification Society
  • ClassNK
  • Croatian Register of Shipping
  • Germanischer Lloyd
  • Indian Register
  • Korean Register
  • Lloyd’s Register (MED & Type Approval)
  • Polish Register of Shipping
  • RINA
  • Russian Register

In addition to the above Classification Societies, Navgard™ is also approved by:

  • United States Coast Guard (USCG)
2) Easiest, Quickest & Lowest Cost System to Install – GUARANTEED!

When you chose which BNWAS to install on your ships, you’ll obviously want to know how much the total installation will cost you, including installation materials & labour. That’s why, unlike most other BNWAS suppliers, we offer Navgard™ to you INCLUDING all cable, brackets, bulkhead fixings & all system cable glands. We’ve got nothing to hide and want to make your job easier – with Navgard™ you don’t have to worry about hidden extra costs.

Navgard™ is the easiest & quickest system for you to install because alarms & resets are wired DIRECTLY to the control panel using a single cable type. & screw connectors.  Many other systems require you to wire alarms & resets to a separate “interface” modules and then wire from the interface unit to the control panel with up to 5 different cable types.

Navgard™ has an integral high intensity siren for bridge alarm so you don’t need to buy and install a separate one. Navgard™ has an integral cabin select funsction so you don’t need to buy and install a separate selector switch.

Navgard™ has its own battery back up so you don’t have to install an additional emergency power supply cable.

Navgard™ has integral NMEA comms to VDR and integral fault alarm so you don’t have to pay extra for these as you do with other systems – we urge you to check competitors’ offer carefully on each of these points!

Navgard™ can halve the time you take for cable installation, termination, mounting, etc and make major reduction in the amount and cost of cabling required. With Navgard™ we GUARANTEE you a much quicker, simpler and cheaper installed cost than apparently lower cost equipment – or we’ll give you your money back!

Supplied with a 2-year warranty, by choosing Navgard™ you can be certain you’re buying the best BNWAS for your ships.

4) ON/OFF & Alarm Logging + Password Protected Switch Off

Navgard™ confirms it’s continuously turned ON by logging to integral SD-card with MASTER password protection to deter your crew from switching it OFF & losing vital BNWAS protection. We don’t use key switches as some competitors do, that make it easy to turn the system OFF. The grounding of MV KARIN SCHEPERS in 2009 Accident Report was caused by BNWAS being switched off by its key switch – can you risk this happening on your ships? Navgard™ also logs alarm events in real time, giving you a permanent record of bridge activity.

5) ‘Dual Tech’ Motion Sensor – Prevent False Reset

Navgard™ uses unique Type Approved dual technology infra-red & microwave motion sensors solving the problems of false reset by air-conditioning systems or objects moving on the bridge which affect conventional sensors. We also use digital temperature compensation to automatically adjust sensitivity ensuring sensors maintain detection range & reset function, even when the temperature on the bridge is near to body temperature.
