Pontoon, Gangways and Ramps

Need safe access onto the pontoon rom the bank side

Access ramps, Gangways and steps

When you hire a floating pontoon, sometimes there is a need for additional equipment to safely access it, we have a variety of solutions available for hire from gangways and access ramps to combi steps and safety boats.

Pontoon Access Gangways

FPS’s gangways are a practical, safe, solution to access our pontoons. We can supply bespoke gangways for a variety of uses. Our access gangways are fabricated in our workshop from steel or aluminium and our Gangway package includes: quay connection, rollers, wheels & ramps specific to your usage and site requirements. Our Gangways are easily installed, keeping installation costs to a minimum, making FPS’s floating Gangways a cost effective solution.

Buoyancy
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.
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.
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.
