Inland & Coastal
For commercial, leisure, sports and recreational activities
Inland and Coastal Marina Systems specialise in the design, manufacture and installation of marinas. Our clients include local and regional Government, Port and Fishery Authorities, Marina Operators, Sports and Recreational Clubs, Development Consortiums, Consulting Engineers, Architects and Main Contractors.
Our dedicated and experienced team of staff can offer design guidance for floating marinas and provide solutions to satisfy our client’s specific requirements. Our integrated approach means that all criteria for a fully functioning marina are addressed including mooring options and services, therefore providing clients with a turnkey solution.
In-house manufacturing ensures that our products are always of a high standard of quality. Our installation service also means that clients can be satisfied that experienced professionals are responsible for providing a fully functioning marina.
Walkway & Finger Pontoons
Our pontoon system is manufactured from galvanised steel with polystyrene floatation blocks encased in a glass fibre reinforced concrete skin. The decking options available are glass fibre reinforced concrete decking panels, timber, timber composite or glass reinforced plastic mesh. The fender options are hardwood, softwood, plastic or rubber. The ICMS pontoon structure is extremely robust and offers strength and stability even in the most onerous of conditions.
Glass Fibre Reinforced Concrete Deck
We manufacture our glass fibre reinforced concrete planks in-house. The main advantage of this decking system is that the additional weight offers the pontoon increased stability, over the wood or plastic decks, in harsher wave environments. The glass fibre reinforcement offers excellent corrosive resistant properties and the deck is also very hardworking with low maintenance requirements, hence is particularly suitable for use in a working environment. It is available in either grey or salmon pink.
Heavy Duty Steel Framed Pontoon
ICMS have developed a heavy duty steel pontoon with additional strength in the frame, continuous buoyancy and if required a higher freeboard. This pontoon is able to perform in hardworking and rugged environments.
Pontoon Mooring Options
Pontoons can be restrained in place either by piles or a mooring system. Piles can either be O Piles (normally driven) or H Piles (normally fixed to a quay wall). ICMS can provide brackets either externally or internally to suit either piling option. For a mooring system either in chain or rope, ICMS can provide either brackets, extension legs (to increase draught) or an eye bolt to connect the mooring line to the pontoon.
Concrete Breakwater Units
Our breakwaters are manufactured in-house to an ISO 9001 accredited quality system. The main function of the breakwaters is to attenuate waves to an acceptable level so that sheltered berthing can be provided where a fixed breakwater is not feasible. Breakwaters also offer clients the option to provide a berthing facility for boats in exposed conditions. The units are manufactured from Grade 60N20 reinforced concrete with internal polystyrene blocks. Given the severe environments that these units have to function in we pay particular emphasis to the enhancement of the lifespan and hence offer galvanised reinforcing steel as standard and a glass fibre reinforced concrete skin to the base of the floatation blocks. The breakwaters are available up to 20m in length, 5m in width and 750mm in freeboard.
We can offer gangways in either steel or aluminium manufactured to the highest level of quality. Our gangways are decked with glass fibre reinforced plastic mini mesh which provides a non-slip finish. All gangways are individually customised to suit the range and type of motions and access control requirements. If required mesh panels can also be provided. We can also design and manufacture cantilever platforms and offer advice and guidance on the options available for clients who wish to provide disabled access/access for all. Steel gangways are galvanised and painted as standard.
