Concrete floating docks
Concrete floating docks provide a hard-wearing look for your marina at an affordable price. With affordable entry costs, minimum maintenance costs and a long lifecycle, these docks have a high overload capacity and are stable, robust and durable.
Unsinkable concrete floating docks
Floating structures have traditionally been associated with instability and have only been designed for use with short boats. However, the market has undergone a radical change with the arrival of concrete as a construction material and the discovery that the expended-polystyrene-filled composite provides high levels of buoyancy on its own without the need for additional buoyancy. Concrete floating pontoons are currently ideal for berthing all sorts of medium-sized boats, such as coastguard and rescue boats, fishing boats, patrols and passenger catamarans.
Resistance and durability
Another major advantage is strength. Concrete floating pontoons provide a high degree of resistance to waves up to 1 m high (common in semi-sheltered harbours where swells are caused by wind or the passing of small ships) and have a useful life of at least 40 years.
Moreover, they have a constant freeboard, regardless of the tidal range and are practically unsinkable.
Modular design and standard sizes
At AISTER, we ensure each concrete floating docks we create is perfectly adapted to its site, ensuring your system is the perfect fit for your budget and needs.
Concrete floating docks have a modular design that uses standard sizes, although we can provide, manufacture and install structures with custom dimensions if required. The standard available lengths are 10 m, 12 m and 20 m, with widths between 2.5 m and 5 m and a maximum height of 1.4 m. The freeboard of these structures is between 0.55 m and 0.7 m, and accessories are available in stainless or galvanised steel.
We also provide turnkey projects, meaning we can support you from the planning stage of the work. This allows our clients to benefit from more effective management and the services of our team to help design your project and make the most of every last centimetre of space in your marina. You can arrange as many meetings as you need to ask questions and study all the options in each phase. Our staff are highly qualified and can advise you on each decision you make, including accessibility, permits and environmental concerns, to achieve the best possible result.
