Pontoons may be fixed in position by piles, flexible moorings or radius arms.
This is the preferred method of mooring pontoons.
Standard guides for bolting to the sides of walkways are available with low friction linings for piles with diameters up to 500mm. Special designs for incorporating the piles within the width of the walkway, larger piles or roller bearings can be offered.
Standard connections for chains or ropes ranging from simple brackets to special designs are available.
Designs using A frames or radius arms have been developed but would be custom designed for each site. This mooring option is commonly used for linear berths in rivers or canals.
