3 reasons why Shark Shield is freedom

1

The Power of One

You’re out alone. Floating on the waves or diving beneath the surface. It’s just you and the elements. There’s no time to fear what’s out there swimming with you. With FREEDOM7 you know you’re safe from sharks. You have the power to dive or fish in peace.

  • Some of the world’s leading oceanographic scientists have worked on developing the Shark Shield range.
  • The Shield has become the safety device chosen by professional divers in the US and Australian Navies and has become mandated equipment in the Australian Professional Abalone Diving Industry.
  • The unique pulsing current emitted by the FREEDOM7 does not replicate that of fish and therefore will therefore not attract sharks to the area.
2

On The Edge

You’re a thrill seeker. You choose the ocean for your adventures because you want to see more, experience more and catch more than you ever thought possible. The Shark Shield will enable you to go to the edge. Both within yourself and out there in the deep blue without fear of the powerful rulers of the deep.

  • The rechargeable lithium ion battery pack provides up to seven hours of usage. That’s a full day out diving or paddling on only one charge!
  • Dive up to 50m (148 feet) with the Shield attached to your ankle, snorkel or scuba tank.
  • The Shark Shield is the world’s only scientifically proven and independently tested electronic shark deterrent system available on the market today, with over twenty years of world-class research.

Knowledge is Power

When you’re out there chasing shoals or paddling over swells you want all the knowledge you can get. Your safety depends on it. The more you know about the ocean playground you love, the better equipped you are. Empower yourself with the FREEDOM7.

  • Sharks have tiny gel filled sacs in their snouts called ‘Ampullae of Lorenzini’. The Shield creates an electrical field that causes these snout sensors to spasm uncomfortably.
  • The Shark Shield repels all predatory shark species. These include Great Whites, Tigers, Zambezi (Bull), Mako, Oceanic, Grey Nurse, Hammerhead sharks.
  • If you make contact with the antennae you might experience mild stimulation but you cannot be electrocuted. (See our FAQ’s for more info.)
