The large footprint of a port requires an ever increasing level of security as different type’s of vessels traffic in and out of their port of call.
In order to effectively protect port assets in today’s increasing threat environments, more is required than traditional chain link fencing.
Tearing down existing fencing to upgrade to a state-of-the art, high security perimeter system, is both time consuming and expensive.
A new solution was needed, and to meet that requirement AMICO Security developed the AMICO Chameleon System.
The AMICO Chameleon System provides an immediate upgrade to securing assets by retrofitting and creating a unified curtain wall perimeter barrier at a fraction of the cost and time – of a complete replacement.
The AMICO Chameleon System is one of three AMICO Security systems nominated to compete in the 2017 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program.
The Chameleon is particularly attractive to protect ports and harbors, where High Interest Vessels (HIV) dock.
The patent pending Chameleon Bracket System enables you to upgrade an existing chain link fence, to the AMIGUARD system utilizing existing fence posts.
How It Works
The Chameleon Consists of Four Components for a Complete Security Overhaul.
- AMICO AMICLAMP
- Specially designed, patent pending AMICLAMP’s allow for easy attachment to existing posts
- AMICO Infini-Rail
- The AMICLAMP’s accommodate the infini-rail.
- AMICO AMIGUARD
- Unlimited Security Mesh & Panel Options are available to choose from, which includes anti-cut and anti-climb capabilities.
- AMICO Diamond Fasteners
- The new security mesh curtain wall of your choice is then attached, utilizing AMICO diamond fasteners.
All AMICO infill panels, post and infini-rails are securely bolted together for incredible added strength, ensuring that any load or impact to the fence is distributed throughout the entire system – greatly enhancing the strength of Amiguard.
Additionally, as the AMICO Chameleon System utilizes existing fence posts – a day’s installation does not leave the facility vulnerable.
Amiguard’s unique approach incorporates innovative solutions to solve common concerns including – security, aesthetics, seamless design, ease of installation, the incorporation of impact and fiber optic cables, anti-cut anti-climb mesh options, wind load testing.

The AMICO Chameleon System can also be mounted on concrete barriers for temporary security on docks and around other port assets.
