Pontoons

Beaver Bridge Hire has a large hire stock of Uniflote modular pontoons with the fleet consisting of over 200 standard pontoon units complete with full range of pontoon accessories. 

The Uniflore system is sold and hired to a variety of customers both in the UK and overseas for use in civil engineering and marine developments and to supplement and replace units the customer's existing Uniflote modular pontoon fleets. Uniflote units can be connected together in a variety of configurations to make marine work platforms, ferries, barges, causeways, floating bridges, access ramps and landing stages. Used wisely for both temporary and permanent marine infrastucture and transportation applications. Uniflote can be used with panel bridges and range of standard accessories to a suit a wide variety of applications.

Uniflote pontoons and equipment can be readily transported on standard commercial vehicles. They are easily connected together in the water without mechanical assistance thanks to the precision engineered, close tolerance coupling system. Once assembled the full Uniflote assembly can be towed or self-propelled to it's working location. The modular design and robust construction of Uniflote provides flexibility and strength, which combine to give a long and effective working life.

Each Uniflote is comprised of a robust, all welded structural steel frame, with steel skin plates and a reinforced deck. Location lugs and couplers are fixed to the sides and ends of each Uniflote so that units can be easily connected to form almost any shape or configuration. Each Uniflote has two watertight bulkheads, which divide the units into three equal compartments for safety and to allow ballasting and/or trimming.The Bulkheads also serve to significantly increase the rigidity of the Uniflote unit. Access to each compartment is via a watertight hatch in the Uniflote deck. In each hatch are two threaded pipe connectors, one of which has a tube extending almost to the bottom of the Uniflote. Through these connectors each compartment can be flooded or water may be forced out by the introduction of compressed air.

Strong sledge-type runners fitted to the base of the Uniflote assist with skidding the units on shore. Lifting points are provided as an integral part of each unit to facilitate handling by crane. The standard Uniflote is constructed with steel gunwales which stand 80mm proud of the deck plates and facilitate the fitting of a removable timber deck, handrailing winches, saddles and bollards.

The deck of the standard unit is constructed from 5mm steel plate. Chequer plate or reinforced steel decks can be provided to meet specific customer requirements.
