Why Modular Pontoons Are THE Floating Platform Of Choice



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.

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 350kg 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.

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.
