Safe Floating Work PlatformFloating Pontoons For Easy Access
Work Safer on the Water
From river banks to bridges, harbour walls to canal locks, often the only way of carrying out repair and maintenance is from the water. That’s when you need a safe working platform.
Our floating pontoon solutions are the endlessly flexible working platforms that give you the space you need to store tools and equipment close by, the sturdiness to carry a scaffold tower safely, and the mobility to travel between work sites on the water.
Any Project. Any Pontoon
Choose pontoon hire from Floating Pontoon Solutions and we’ll be able to tailor the size and shape of your pontoon to follow the contours of bridges, to span arches and to work around other obstructions.
Take a look at the modular floating pontoons solutions that have helped our clients.
Designed for Safety
All our floating pontoons have edge protection railings included. You can enhance edge protection still further by including chains, ropes and debris netting where required.
In addition, the modular nature of our floating pontoons means that shape, size and load bearing capacity can be tailored to the specific project, so your workforce always operates in complete safety.
Pontoons For People & Plant Machinery
Floating pontoons are sturdy enough to carry pedestrians and even light plant equipment. Use them to assemble equipment on water, or to manoeuvre equipment or sub structures (like concrete shuttering) into position. The system can be configured to carry small plant such as excavators for de-silting works. Ply board is available for protection when painting, shot blasting or protection from hot works.
Working at height whilst on the water (e.g. to access the underside of bridges) can prove a difficult task, but floating pontoons are sturdy enough to make the job much simpler. Ask us to erect a scaffold tower to your floating pontoon system and we’ll fit anchor points that secure the tower to the pontoon, ensuring your workforce remains safe and secure at all times.
Access Site Upstream/Downstream From The Work Site?
It’s not always possible to access the water at the point where you need the floating pontoon. Where your floating work platform needs to travel to site, we can either fit the pontoon with an outboard motor, or use one of our own work boats to tow the pontoon into position. All our staff are CSCS trained and have Rescue 3 Europe qualifications. Working on the water is like a second home to them, meaning you’re in the safest hands possible.

Your Project Partner
Wherever your project, there’s virtually nowhere we can’t install our floating pontoon systems.
When vehicle access is limited or if there’s particularly soft ground, we can split each floating platform into manageable sized sections and carry them to the water, where they can be reassembled without damaging soft ground or the surrounding area.
Construction and installation of the modular pontoon system requires a skilled team of professionals. We work with you through all phases of your project from attending pre-start meetings, providing method statements and guidance through to installation and demobilising of the pontoon.
