Bridge Maintenance Floating PlatformsSimple access for bridge & highways engineers
All Access Bridge Maintenance
A bridge repair isn’t complete unless you can access its underside. But getting up close to the underside of a bridge when it spans water isn’t easy – unless you choose a floating pontoon.
Our floating pontoon systems provide river-based access on any scale, giving you the solid platform from which to carry out inspections, maintenance and repair work.
Bridge Maintenance Solutions
Our floating pontoon systems can support up to 175kg of evenly distributed weight on each square metre. That means they have the robust buoyancy to cope with work crews, tools, plant machinery and scaffold.
And we don’t merely supply the floating platform. From PASMA accredited scaffold builders to the ropes and outboard motors required to manoeuvre the pontoon, everything for your bridge inspection work is included.
Take a look at how our floating pontoons are making our clients’ bridge maintenance work simpler:
Manoeuvring Your Platform
Bridges may offer access over water, but often accessing the area beneath them isn’t easy. So when there is no immediate access to water at the bridge site, we’ll float or motor the pontoon to the required location.
You can use ropes or outboard motors to position the pontoon exactly where you need it as works progress, so crews are never overreaching.
