Pontoon Uses /Floating Docks
Temporary moorings and berthing
Our modular pontoon system allows us to build temporary floating docks and berths for regattas, boat shows and harbour refurbishment projects. If you’re looking for a tried and tested system that can be installed quickly, moved whenever required and then broken down on a specific date, then our modular floats are the perfect system.
We have significant experience in providing temporary floating docks and temporary berths for events ranging from specialist boat shows to large scale high profile events. Our parent company is a major UK commercial boat operator and our know-how shows through.
The Commonwealth Games
We were proud to be selected to provide temporary berthing for over 250 boats at the Commonwealth Games Flotilla in Glasgow. We provided pontoon for temporary moorings at both ends of the flotilla in Greenock and Glasgow. The organisers were delighted.
Fittings for mooring
All of our pontoons used as floating docks may be customised with cleats and fenders according to vessel type. We are also able to fit hand rail systems and establish traffic ‘flow’ where required. Access ramps and bridges are specified and installed as required.
Fixing and anchoring
The system is secured in place using a variety of methods suitable for the exact position of the installation taking account of vessel type and weight, footfall, tidal range, exposure to wind and other factors.
Although the images on this page show large systems installed for major events, please don’t hesitate to talk to us about smaller projects.
