Linkflote pontoons can be easily configured to meet the most varied of needs. Whatever the application, units can be assembled to provide
an effective and economical solution.
Linkflote pontoons can be configured for use with excavators up to 60t in weight. In each case the particular configuration set up must comply with the stability requirements as specified by the excavator manufacturer and be a minimum of 500mm from the pontoon edge. All imposed loads must be within the structural capacity of the Linkflote pontoon and the deck must be protected with timber mats or similar to spread the loadings evenly.
All configurations can be supplied with a full set of bespoke stability calculations.
Ideally suited for the following project solutions:
- Rafts and platforms
- Ferries and barges
- Landing stages
