A gangway is a raised walkway passage that connects a floating pontoon to land. It is similar to a ramp, just longer.
Here are the Benefits of Aluminium Gangway:
The robust nature of the frame is one of the biggest benefits of aluminium gangways. They are manufactured from marine-grade aluminium. This makes them light in weight, yet structurally very strong. They are also stable in composition, that makes them extremely rugged and robust, yet easy to move and transport. Moreover, aluminium components make the gangway non-corrosive and non-combustible.
Here at KP Fabrication & Welding, we custom make the aluminium gangways to suit individual needs and environmental requirements. Whether you’re looking for a budget-friendly gangway for private use or a commercial-grade gangway for a marina, we provide and install a suitable solution.
You can also choose from various decking options available with aluminium gangways. Aluminium mesh is a very popular choice. Aluminium sheeting with marine carpet overlay to match the gangway deck to the pontoon deck. Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP Grating) is low maintenance, visually appealing option used in many commercial applications. There is timber decking for those who prefer a more natural look.
Withstand Marine Environments
Since aluminium gangways are not fixed in place vertically, they move up and down with the tides; gangways don’t receive the thrashing that typical timber jetties receive.
The design and materials used in an aluminium gangway are constructed to provide superior longevity. They also require very little to no maintenance.
Safety is always the priority. By choosing an aluminium gangway, safety is ensured. There is no risk of rotted decking or slippery surfaces due to algae. Both aluminium mesh and marine carpet provide a non-slip surface to ensure safety is paramount.
KP Fabrication & Welding have expertise in ramps as well as aluminium gangways. If you’re in the industry of floating jetties, consider installing an aluminium gangway.
