Bespoke Pontoon Design
We customise our breakwaters to meet individual customer requirements with breakwaters up to 6m wide available.
Our breakwaters have excellent wave attenuation properties. Transmission co-efficients have been derived for out breakwaters to provide a detailed analysis of the level of protection offered on all sites.
The connections consist of high yield stainless steel wire rope and rubber buffers with IRHD 70, offering a combination of strength and flexibility to suit even the most onerous sites.
Our breakwaters are manufactured from grade C50/60 concrete, offering a high strength unit.
Reinforcing Steel & Concrete Cover
Galvanised reinforcing steel is used throughout, and a concrete cover is provided in accordance with exposure classifications ensuring its longevity.
A glassfibre reinforced concrete skin can be added to the base of the breakwaters to protect floats, preventing damage and buoyancy loss.
When a mooring system is used for restraint our breakwater offers a mooring box as standard. The chain and rope can be fed from the deck level and held in the mooring box, substantially reducing the underwater work required from other systems such as mooring hooks. This reduces installation time and facilitates safer maintenance.
For breakwaters restrained by a piling system, we can offer the option of either an external or internal pile guide. Both systems are designed to satisfy the range of loads experienced by the pontoons.
The fender options available for our breakwaters are rubber, plastic or timber.
Cast in ducting is provided for service runs with manholes located at suitable spacings for convenient access.
Side by Side Connections
We can offer side by side connection for breakwaters to form larger platforms, extending the width up to 12m.
Mooring bollards with up to a 10T load capacity can be provided in either galvanised or powder coated finish.
All our pontoons are manufactured to an ISO 9001 Accredited System.
