EirGlide is designed for simplicity just drive on and reverse off. Simply ballasting the end modules, by adding water, creates a gentle curve, this curve submerging the end modules allows the Boat/RIB/Jet Ski to drive onto the EirGlide with no hard impact. The trapezoid shape is designed to guide the craft easily onto the pontoon.
Applications for EirGlide Modular Pontoons are varied ranging from:
Both module and pin are individually manufactured by rotational moulding in one piece without welds or joins so that no weak points exist. The Trapezoid slipway is designed to take large or small craft including Jet Skis.
Moulded into the slipway are ridges which enhance the EirGlide durability. The module underside is conical to give increased stability and prevent modules lifting from the water. The lugs, designed for maximum strength.
The floating module pontoon and connecting pin are manufactured from Linear Medium Molecular Density Polyethylene (MDPE) with narrow molecular weight distribution to give improved impact resistance.
AIRFLOAT MPS Floating Pontoons have been thoroughly tested for strength, impact resistance, and permeability, low and high temperature resistance. They are 100% recyclable, rot proof and resistant to fuel, oils, acids, hydrocarbons and other contaminants. The blocks are manufactured using UV inhibitors to protect them from degradation caused by ultra violet radiation.
The standard pontoon colour is green but AIRFLOAT MPS pontoons can be manufactured in a wide range of other colours with black a popular choice.
Basic pontoon module: 700mm x 700mm x 440mm high
Depth of slipway: 150mm
Draft: 50mm unloaded
Freeboard: 390mm (to centre of module) unloaded 15kgs per module
Weight of EirGlide Modules: 15kg per module
Single Tier: 360kg per m²
To alter the level of flotation (for example, for smaller craft) modules can be ballasted by filling them with water.
Impact resistance: A 78kg weight repeatedly dropped from 3m heights onto the surface and side of a module caused virtually no damage
Tensile strength of lugs: Along diagonal and horizontal axes, more than 3 tonnes per unit
