Pontoons and other products
The aluminium floating docks made by Poralu Marine are exceptional products that offer marina clients, high performance and durable solutions for dock construction. They are also environmentally friendly as they are constructed from sustainable marine-grade quality products. The innovation incorporated into our marina designs is strengthened by the technical characteristics and details of our engineered solutions to make our products particularly resistant to the most extreme climates and marine environments. The modularity of our docks gives marina operators the flexibility to configure and reconfigure layouts based on client needs. The clean and customisable look and aesthetic of aluminium structures make Poralu Marine solutions and products popular for any upmarket operation.
Poralu Marine docks are also installed in fixed or permanent, non-floating applications such as public piers or boardwalks. Their lightweight, yet highly durable aluminium alloy construction allows for the fixed docks to be installed on piles whilst maintaining the clean, high-end aesthetic to complement a marina. Their non-slip, high strength, decking makes them an ideal solution for boat docks and watersports.
Mooring arms and fingers docks
The design and functionality of Poralu Marine mooring arms and finger docks highlight the flexibility and modularity of our marina equipment. Poralu designed and built marinas have the capacity to accommodate various types of yachts and can be constantly adjusted based on need and demand. This flexibility is made possible by the design of the fingers themselves. Extrusions attach to the main jetty and clip and lock into place without any bolts. This allows for fingers to be moved, or removed, by simply sliding them up and down the aluminium channel of the main jetty. Fenders are also installed on the fingers and main docks which protect the hulls of yachts from rub marks or impact.
Another innovative component of the docks is the silent blocks that are used in connecting jetties together. They can withstand and resist more than 20 tonnes of tension, further guaranteeing the longevity of the floating dock installations.
Pedestrian dock gangways by Poralu Marine serve a multitude of applications. From connecting walkways to a marina, to creating access over land or water from point A to point B, our bridges meet or exceed safety requirements. Regardless of incline or grade, our aluminium dock gangways consist of non-slip decking and come in a variety of colours decking options and have on-demand design railings.
In Ajaccio, France, Poralu Marine set a new record with the construction of a 65-metre aluminium alloy dock gangway.
Our concrete floating breakwaters are designed to protect marinas and harbours.
These floating breakwaters are installed in waters that are exposed to very difficult weather conditions and tidal activities in order to reduce the impact of waves height. They are composed of a reinforced concrete structure and filled with polystyrene for flotation. The floating breakwaters are reinforced with galvanised steel that meets the BS4449 and BS EN ISO 1461 standards and has a concrete decking surface that is also non-slip rated.
We manufacture all our polyethylene floats through our own roto-mold process using polyethylene and high-density expanded polystyrene (foam). Designed by and specifically for Poralu Marine equipment, our polyethylene floats come with a 15-year warranty and offer clean, consistent, and environmentally superior floatation.
Key features of Poralu Marine polyethylene floats:
- Resistant to hydrocarbons and other pollution found in marinas
- Integrated channels in the floatation allowing water or electric lines to be installed and serviced efficiently
- Shock-resistant and grounded
- Resistant to electrolysis
- UV treated and protected
