Bidder-design, engineer and manufacture tubular steel framed float system utilizing HDPE pipe pontoon for flotation. The cylindrical flotation shape and grated steel-bar decking surface readily allows snowfall to pass does not permit build-up of snow, water and debris, eliminating below-deck accumulation of these elements. Steel decking also incorporates a “serrated” edge for maximum traction and user safety.
The individual float sections are very stiff, both in bending and torsion, for maximum stability. The float sections are allowed to articulate at the connections by use of a time-tested connection method. Float-to-float connections are designed to accommodate extreme wind/wave conditions and to transfer anticipated loads between float sections. Connections are designed to be frictionless, noiseless, non-wearing and easily replaceable should any maintenance ever be required.
For Today’s Marine Environments
We are the first choice among owners, contractors and engineers.
Our timber float systems lead the industry in material quality, craftsmanship, extraordinarily rugged construction and customer satisfaction.
We understand the need for heavily reinforced concrete that won’t crumble into beach gravel under the stress of winter’s freeze-thaw cycles.
Our heavy-duty steel framed docks are designed to accommodate high freeboard, large vessels, and extreme weather.
Using extreme design flexibility we can address the unique challenges of each location to protect your infrastructure.
Many of our projects have utilized galvanized steel-bar decking, molded and pultruded fiberglass (FRP) decking.
Many of our projects are built to withstand the harshest environments, these are some examples of our systems put to the test.
