High Reserve Buoyancy
We have developed our rowing and watersports pontoon to maximise the reserve buoyancy of the pontoon while maintaining a low freeboard. Achieved by using all available space, above the waterline for floatation, the high reserve buoyancy means that multiple of users can be on the facility and launching boats simultaneously.
Access and Egress
During the design process we consider how the pontoon user can safely access and egress from the pontoon while carrying a boat. A detailed analysis of the types of boats used on the facility and the lifting capacities of the users will also be considered. The design and supply of an access system fit for purpose will be included as part of the project.
Galvanised steel structure
The frame of the pontoon is manufactured from steel galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461 which ensures strength and longevity of the structure.
Generally decked with Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) or Glass Reinforced Concrete (GRC) our pontoons offer excellent anti-slip properties, imperative for a watersports environment.
The flotation blocks for the pontoons are encased in a concrete skin, making the overall weight of the pontoon heavier, increasing stability.
All our systems are designed taking into account berthing location and environmental loads. Chains, ropes, elasticated moorings or piles are all options, depending on the specific project’s requirements.
The pontoons can be fendered with rubber, plastic or timber.
Side by Side Connections
The pontoons can be joined side by side to offer large platforms for clubs and watersports providers.
All our rowing and watersports pontoons are manufactured to an ISO 9001 Accredited System.
