Design and Fabrication of Floating Pontoon

Download project portfolio: Floating Pontoon

When a client approached us to build a Floating Pontoon for his community of shack owners Dalkeith Plastics Pty Ltd
were more than happy to assist. Our first meeting involved identifying the client’s requirements.

Having established the dimensions, anchoring mechanism, weather conditions/exposure and budget, the Dalkeith Plastics Pty Ltd team worked out the suitable design with pipe diameters, structural design, to build a structure that would endure constant weather exposure and strength while, limiting the amount of maintenance required to maintain the pontoon.

In assisting the client with minimising the ‘up-keep’ to the pontoon, Dalkeith sourced the decking material from A.P.R. Their unique product of ribbed decking allows the same properties of steel/wood but without any maintenance of re-coating, re-treating after excessive exposure to the weather.

The client was extremely happy with the final product as are the surrounding shack owners in the district!
