Steel guide rings
When it comes to anchoring concrete pontoons and floating breakwaters by means of piles, the use of galvanised steel guide rings is recommended.
These guide rings, which firmly attach the pontoon by gripping the pipes, are fixed to the pontoon by stainless steel fittings.
The guide rings will be fitted with 3 or 4 high-resistance rubber rollers with nylon cores and Ø22mm stainless steel shafts designed to cushion the blows against the piles produced by the movement of the pontoons due to the sea swell. This not only reduces the noise but also the appearance of gaps and any misalignment brought about as a result of the structures continuous banging against the pipes. These guide rings also include a rot-resistant tropical wood fender of the same quality as fitted on the pontoons.
