Commercial pontoons can be made with Rotodock or modular cube systems
The Rotodock is an LDPE floatation unit which is rotationally moulded from UV stabilised Low Density Polyethylene. This produces a single shell which is virtually indestructible and resistant to oil and chemicals. The floats are filled with polyurethane or polystyrene beads which are steam injected to form a solid mass. We can then add the mooring and fixing points to suit your application including; hinges, ramp fixings, anchor plates, service channels, cleats, rubbing strakes etc. The Rotodock is best on calmer waters as, being larger single units, it doesn’t have the flexibility that the modular cubes offer. It does however provide more stability.
The modular cube system consists of HDPE (high density polyethylene) cubes that link together using a connection lug. They are incredibly robust, stable and versatile, making them the ideal solution for a wide range of pontoon applications. We can make the pontoons in virtually any shape and size, and we can also add or remove cubes if your requirements change in the future. The cubes can be used for both temporary and permanent installations and are able to withstand years of environmental wear and tear, as well as extreme wave motion, making it ideal for exposed locations. HDPE systems don’t require any regular maintenance, and don’t suffer from any environmental degradation or corrosion issues. As well as stocking a wide variety of accessories including cleats, fenders, handrails, winches, bathing ladders, and mooring accessories we can also manufacture any project-specific items in our in-house CNC machine shop. We hold large stocks of all items available for immediate delivery.
