The Aqua concrete series pontoon is a more heavyweight piled pontoon system, that can be installed in all situations from the quietest canal to the main river, with heavy boat traffic.
The concrete top version has an optional “Dry Berth” which allows a vessel up to 2 Tonne to be moored on top of the pontoon (size & weight conditions apply). The dry berth pontoon has a cut out or scollop at one end to make an easier accent onto the pontoon.
A piled pontoon is a reference to how the pontoon is held in place, generally speaking, most typical piled pontoons have two piles. The number of piles required are given by our independent engineers and revolves around total weights, wind load factors and a variety of other measures, typically pontoons under 12m will be two piles.
Strut pontoons use an aluminium strengthening beam and gangway for support. We add extra support by running two stainless steel cables in a X shape to stop any left to right movement, in conjunction with the strut arm and gangway stopping any back and forth movement.
Cable Pontoons are constructed with the highest grade materials starting from the aluminium deck right through to the flotation system. Using a truss like system for the deck the light weight series is extremely strong, layered over the truss is aluminium sheeting to which the carpet is then fixed onto.
