WATCH ARBOR SHIELD IN ACTION

Deterrent Against All Livestock 

Based on the science of biomimetics, Arbor Shield mimics the deterrent effects of several plants found in nature. Similar to the cactus, who prickly spikes warn away any predator wanting to eat it (video commentary is in original language: Spanish).

The deterrent effect of the contact between the animals skin and the spikes is harmless and conditions the animal to never attempt it again. This creates a regenerative culture and respect for the environment.

Tested In Extreme Conditions

Livestock approaches AS and attempts to break into plant and eat it. Upon deflection from the spikes, the animal immediately respects the boundaries with no bodily harm done.

This is a huge improve on the current mesh wire that gets toppled over by livestock with great ease.

OTHER APPLICATIONS

Arbor Shield has several other useful applications that include public and private safety. Instead of shaping in cylinders, AS can be left in panels and tied directly onto regular fencing around property in need of extra security measures. The applications are endless!
