Additional Pontoon Equipment

Not just pontoon's, We can provide all the equipment for your marine project.



A watertight float or vessel used where buoyancy is required in water, as in supporting a bridge, in salvage work, or where a temporary or mobile structure is required. A pontoon bridge.

Yet that’s only the start of what our floating pontoon systems are capable of. Discover the many ways pontoon hire can make your event or project simpler.

Pontoon Hire – Solutions for Business

Does your project require a floating pontoon for maintenance, access, plant machinery, engineers or camera crews? Or perhaps you’re organising an event that requires a floating platform for guests, spectators or competitors?

Whatever your requirements, we’ve got the safe, secure pontoon solution for you. With quick and easy installation and nationwide delivery and collection, we make pontoon hire simple.

Why Choose Floating Pontoons?
Low installation costs. Minimum upkeep levels. High stability. Ask us to install a floating pontoon for your event or project and you’ll have the sturdiest of structures designed to withstand the weight of people, vehicles and machinery.

And because all our floating pontoon systems are rot-proof, they’ll stay stable whether you need them temporarily or permanently.

We have a number of solutions to increase the buoyancy, strength and capability of our pontoons based on the recommendations of our engineers. The obvious solution is more pontoon, whether this is a bigger footprint to the pontoon as a whole or double stacking the pontoons to effectively double the overall buoyancy, both can easily be done and even partnered together.
Versatile capabilitys
Our pontoons offer strong, reliable and versatile platforms for any project. The loading capabilities of our pontoons may be enhanced when required to provide buoyancy levels capable of supporting surprisingly large loads.
Pontoon Sizes & kg Weight Load Per m2

Our floating pontoons are typically 966 mm x 483 mm x 390 mm. They weigh approximately 11.5kg per double float. This makes them light enough to be carried by hand to the water’s edge when there is limited access. Each square metre of pontoon can take up to 175kg of evenly distributed weight.

If you need the platform to carry extra weight, we can increase the pontoon thickness by adding further layers of pontoon. And we can transform the shape or size of any pontoon to meet your requirements.

Point loading

The modular makeup of our pontoons means that when significant weight is applied to the surface, they flex in order to spread the load and accommodate the weight being applied. Should significant weight need to be applied to the pontoon in a small area then we are able to spread the weight on the pontoon by use of a subframe and or reinforceing the deck. This significantly increases the point loading capabilities of the pontoons.

Protecting The Environment
Ensuring our pontoon hire remains kind to waterways and the wider environment is as important to us as it is to you. That’s why we choose floating pontoons manufactured from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), selected for its toughness and durability. All our pontoons are:

  • Manufactured from 100% recyclable material
  • Rot-proof, resistant to acids, bases and hydrocarbons
  • Manufactured to food grade standards (so they won’t damage the environment and are always safe to use, even on drinking water reservoirs)

If required, we can also supply floating pontoons in recycled HDPE, with ultra violet stabilisers that offer a very high UV resistance.
