Floating Scaffold Pontoon Uses
Floating Pontoon Solutions have an array of experience with providing our clients with floating platforms suitable for housing scaffolding allowing you to work at height from the water.

Stability calculations are provided to all our clients to ensure a safe and stable pontoon.
Floating Scaffold Pontoon Services
FPS’s modular floating pontoons are often favoured due to their quick mobilisation times and versatility. We have our own in-house PASMA trained operatives, that have a wealth of experience erecting the scaffolding on water. We can offer a full marine support package to include a site team to remain on site throughout the duration of the works, including safety equipment and work boats.
Securing Your Scaffolding
The pontoons offer the perfect platform upon which to house scaffold towers and scaffolding systems. The surface of the pontoon provides a flat firm surface upon which the legs of scaffold towers can be mounted. We are also able to install tie down points on the deck of the pontoon to physically secure the scaffolding platform down to the pontoon itself.
Depending on your access and the design of your required pontoon we are able to deliver ready-made slabs on our flat-bed vehicles, assembling on site by craning into location – our aim is to deliver and install the pontoon quickly and efficiently without compromising safety.
The moored pontoon is substantial enough for there to be almost zero movement while working at height over flat water. On moving waterways, our experts will advise whether this solution is viable following a site visit to your project.
