The majority of our pontoons are made from thin wall, large diameter tubular steel. These arranged in a catamaran configuration with welded cross tubes provide an extremely strong, rigid and stable platform of continuous tubular floats. Their intrinsic strength and versatility allows us to design for most buoyancy, loading and geometric requirements without relying on the deck frame for strength.
The floats are fully welded, grit blasted to internationally accepted Standard SA21/2 and finished in a 2 component high build isocyanate cured coal tar/epoxied resin coating to 440 microns. All floatation components are pressure tested to be guaranteed watertight. Cathodic protection can be provided to further extend the life of the installation.
Deck frames are of fully welded steel construction, hot dipped galvanized and mounted with mooring cleats or bollards as required. The deck edges are fully protected by a substantial hardwood fender.
