Design Features:
Bidder-design, engineer and manufacture steel-framed, steel-bar grated mooring floats for the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe. Float structure utilizes welded HSS steel structural frame, hot-dip galvanized after fabrication; and flotation consists of rotationally-molded polyethylene flotation drums.

Float deck is 100%-coverage steel bar grating, hot-dip galvanized, with 1” x 3/16” serrated-edge bearing bars 1-3/16” on-center, giving 85% light permeability. All grating panels and penetrations are fully edge banded.

The full-perimeter rubstrip is post-consumer HDPE and full-perimeter bullrail is hot-dip galvanized HSS4x3 tube steel on UHMW cylindrical scupper blocks, through-bolted to the float structure.

The float system features a full-length utility chaseway for ease of access to utilities. The internal and external pile guides are lined with UHMW wear surface. Deck openings around internal pile guides are trimmed with a floating HDPE plate collar to eliminate pinching hazard
