Funded by the city council, the new water sports centre in Frouzins now has a brand new building and floating dock.
The 12 m pontoon is made from four 1.5 m x 3 m floating sections. It has six 1 m x 3 m finger pontoons and polyethylene cleats to moor the boats. A 3.8 m polyethylene gangway with a galvanised steel roller connects it to the shore, providing access to the platform.
As the bottom of the gravel pit is naturally uneven, our polyethylene brackets were used in a mixed anchoring solution: with piles at the base of the pontoon at the shore end and with deadweights at the far end.
