Floating Pontoons For Events

Floating Walkways, Stages & Platforms For Public & Private Events

Give Your Event the Sturdiest Platform

When your event takes place over water, floating pontoons create safer, sturdier walkways, swim platforms, floating jetties and more.

Highly stable, environmentally compliant and capable of carrying the heaviest loads, talk to us about giving your event the safest possible way to take to the water.

Event Pontoon Hire

Your event doesn’t have to be on water to take advantage of a floating pontoon. Want to film events on land from the water? Need a temporary marina? Planning on launching fireworks from the lake?

Our floating pontoons have helped our clients make even the most ambitious event plans a reality. Find out more about our floating pontoon solutions for events.

Floating Pontoon Surfaces

All our floating pontoons can be covered with materials ranging from carpet or artificial turf (typically for events) to ply board, providing the flat, unbroken surface that’s ideal for using beneath equipment. Other coverings are available on request.

Kg Weight Load Per m2

Each square metre of floating pontoon can support up to 175kg of evenly distributed weight. For additional weight, we simply increase the pontoon thickness by adding additional layers.

Modules Explained

Your event is unlikely to require exactly the same number or arrangement of floating pontoons as anyone else’s. That’s why our floating pontoons are modular, so we can tailor the exact size and shape of floating pontoon system to your event. Despite their carrying capacity, pontoon modules are lightweight, and can easily be manoeuvred with oars or ropes, or connected to an outboard motor if you need your waterborne working platform to be mobile. With 24 hour delivery and expert installation, talk to us about delivering and assembling your floating pontoons.

Delivery, Assembly, Dismantling & Collection

We can deliver and install your modular floating pontoon virtually anywhere.
Our skilled pontoon engineers will work with you to ensure your floating pontoon delivers all the strength, rigidity and safety your event needs. And we’ll be with you at every phase of your project, from pre-start meetings and method statements to installation and deconstruction of the pontoon system.
Typically, we assemble our floating platforms on flat ground before launching them onto the water. For large event pontoons, we create smaller sections on land, then connect them on water. Where vehicle access is limited or where ground is particularly soft or requires protecting, we carry modules to the water and assemble there.

Just a quick note to say thank you for the flexibility that you showed last week in relation to the change to the relocation date for the pontoon(s) at Oxley Moor and for completing another high quality installation which CRT are again happy with.
