Linkflote units can be connected together in a variety of configurations to make marine work platforms, ferries, barges, causeways, floating bridges, access ramps and landing stages.
Each Linkflote has two watertight bulkheads, which divide the units into three equal compartments for safety and to allow ballasting and/ or trimming. The bulkheads also serve to significantly increase the rigidity of the Linkflote unit. Access to each compartment is via a watertight hatch in the Linkflote deck.
