Additional Information

Weather Resistance

Extreme force

Durable materials designed for even the toughest marine environments.

Our Products have been tested in the harshest conditions returning unscathed – from two projects in the Antarctica, drive on docks in the Falklands, to the searing heats of Diego Garcia and Cyprus to the hurricanes in Florida.

Freezing conditions

Snow and ice present no threat to the product

Our docks are at home in extreme conditions, snow and ice present no threat to the product, except fast flowing water which freezes into large ice blocks. As such these fast floating blocks can gouge open the floats as easily as it can do the same for a hull?

Freezing waters does not harm the floats, typically they rise above the ice as it freezes underneath.

Heat and sun

UV stable HDPE means no maintenance

The products do well in the heat, being natural grey colour they have demonstrated 40 degree variance in temperature to that of black floats, test in the UAE

Versatility / Stowage

The docks can be broken down, into light weight sections to enable easy pick up and effective stowage. The docks can be slung vertically on the side of a ship’s hull.

The floats can be easily constructed / re configured to meet your needs with basic training. A 30ft x 30ft dock can be constructed from scratch in 3 hours with just 2 x trained personnel.

The floats give incredibly stable platforms even in the roughest sea states.
