Floating concrete breakwater focus at Metstrade

October 24, 2022

We will be showcasing our versatile floating concrete breakwaters to the international market at Metstrade, 15-17 November 2022.

“Over the last couple of years boating has boomed, increasing the demand for quality berthing around the world,” says Oliver Shortall, our Managing Director. “Lack of space has led to marinas expanding or being developed in more exposed areas. 

“Combining high strength and flexibility, and specifically designed to reduce waves to a level where sheltered berthing can be provided, our floating concrete breakwaters are an ideal option for marina and harbour operators where a fixed breakwater is not feasible.”

But it’s not just the wave attenuation properties of our floating concrete breakwaters which has led to their use in marina and waterfront developments all over the world, from Mexico to Melbourne.

“From a berthing perspective, our breakwaters are also an ideal solution for heavier displacement boats and superyachts which require a larger more robust mooring,” continues Oliver.

“Manufacturing the breakwaters in house, we oversee the design process so we’re able to vary the freeboard heights of the breakwaters, matching the increasingly larger freeboards we’re seeing on leisure craft as they get bigger. This makes it a much more comfortable experience for anyone using the berths.” 

In addition at Metstrade, we’ll be available to discuss our full range of pontoons, decking options and accessories, all designed to offer marinas and yacht harbours safe, stable and non-slip water access with a fresh look and feel.
