The gangways connecting the floating docks to the mainland can be the most delicate element in the design. PSP’s gangways are made in compliance with the international laws in force (BS 6349, AS 3962-2001 begin of the skype highlighting 3962-2001 end of the skype highlighting and 4997-2005, UFC 4-152-01) as well as PIANC directives for port facilities for pleasure boating, safety laws and laws related to removing architectural barriers.

Every size (width, length, free edge, capacity, loads, displacement) can be changed to suit the customer’s requirements.

The strong frame of our connecting gangways is made with S235JRG2 UNI EN 10027 sections of hot dip galvanised steel (in compliance with law EN ISO 1461). The steel sections are braced and assembled using the MAG (Metal Active Gas) welding process.
The thickness of the gangways’ trampling surface is 20 mm. The surface is made of wooden slats with rounded edges and anti-slip grooves (it is also suitable for walking barefoot). The naturally resistant wood (Yellow Balau, Itauba or Ipé), which is FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified, has the physical properties required by the rules in force (EN 350/2) and the mechanical properties required by the German law DIN 68-364. It is screwed on with flat (countersunk) TORX stainless steel screws in Cumaru or Azobé wood spars.The gangways and jetties are connected by slanted almond-patterned sheets.

The pattern of the parapet is called “Croisere” and is similar to the parapets on cruise ships. The handrail is made of rounded larch wood.
