Each LinkfloteTM unit is comprised of a robust, all welded structural steel frame, with steel skin plates and a reinforced deck.
A standard LinkfloteTM unit is:
1,840mm deep LinkfloteTM pontoons and special units can also be manufactured to order.
Standard LinkfloteTM units will support a uniformly distributed load of 95kN whilst maintaining a freeboard of 225mm.
The maximum permissible uniformly distributed deck load on each LinkfloteTM is 20kN/m2.
To ensure these loads can be safely applied to a particular LinkfloteTM arrangement, stability analysis and buoyancy checks need to be demonstrated.
VolkerBrooks can provide advice on the adequacy of units, to resist different loading conditions.
