Pontoon Uses /Pontoons for Marshlands and Reed Beds
When site access is required on land the solution is simple you lay track or install a hard standing road. When access is required on water again the solution is obvious, you can use floating pontoons. However what happens when you get that in between and need to cross areas where you’re uncertain of its stability such as marshlands or reed beds? Thankfully for us, our pontoons still offer the perfect solution.
Floating to Non Floating
On terrain that is predominantly solid the pontoons will follow the contours of the ground offering safe and stable access with edge protection free from trip hazards. However as the ground under foot gets softer and eventually turns to water the pontoon will begin to float offering the same safe and secure access you had over land.
Buoyant and Strong
Our pontoons have undergone extensive testing by marine architects ensuring you can be confident in both their strength and buoyancy in tough conditions. One single square metre of pontoon is capable of floating 350kg per sqm when single stacked and 650kg per sqm when double stacked meaning they are more than capable of being used to transport plant and machinery such as excavators and dumpers.
The pontoons can be configured in increments of just 0.5 metres meaning they can be built to practically any specification whether its turning corners to avoid obstacles to removing sections of the deck to allow for access below for core sampling and piling.
