Gangways and abutments

Introduction

The gangway has to ensure that it is comfortable to board the boat even when the water level changes. Gangways are available with both wooden and metal constructions.

The standard lengths of the wooden gangways are: 1 m, 1.2 m and 1.5 m. Standard lengths are 3–6 meters.

The standard widths of the metal gangways are: 1.2 m and 1.8 m. Standard lengths are 6–12 meters.

The choice of the gangway construction type depends on three equally important aspects:

  1.  pontoon model;
  2. pontoon distance from the shore;
  3.  water level fluctuation range.

We have made things easy for you: you only need to choose the floating pontoon and tell us how far from the beach you want to install it, and our engineers add a gangway with the suitable length and design to the package.

Another and equally easy way is to use our web application (the guide is here ), where you can visualize your idea in a few minutes and send it to us. Our engineer will then send you an updated drawing with a final quote.

NB! As an architect or engineer, you can download models of all our products from the ProdLib catalog. The user manual is here.

Arch bridge

You can give your pontoon a unique look with a wooden arch bridge that has a standard length of 4 m.

Abutments

The abutment is selected according to the type of soil and its task is to fix the gangway to the ground.

The standard width of the abutment is 1.2 m and 1.5 m.

The most common and easiest to use are abutments with screw piles:

In more rocky places, it is worthwhile to go for a concrete abutment that adds stability:

To increase safety, it is good to add railings to the gangway, which also adds uniqueness.
