Abstract
(EN)
A floating walkway or marina (16) is made from pontoons (10) each comprising a deck (11) beneath which is positively located a float (12) to support the deck (11). The pontoons (10) are coupled together and fingers (22) extend from the pontoons to provide moorings for vessels. The fingers (22) each include a deck (11') and floats (12') positively located beneath the decks (11'). Each float (12 and 12') has a thin lightweight protective coating. The coating can be selected from the following: (i) an open weave mesh fabric; (ii) a glass fibre reinforced polyester; (iii) an acrylic cement; (iv) a flexible deformable membrane; or (v) a spray urethane and the coating can be up to 5 mm thick. The floats can be contoured to enhance laminar flow of water about the submerged portion of the float.

La passerelle ou quai flottant décrit (16) est fabriqué à partir de pontons (10) comportant chacun un pont (11) sous lequel est assujetti un flotteur (12) destiné à soutenir le pont (11). Les pontons (10) sont raccordés les uns aux autres et des bras (22) s'étendent à partir des pontons pour former des amarrages pour les bateaux. Les bras (22) comprennent chacun un pont (11') et des flotteurs (12') assujettis sous les ponts (11'). Chaque flotteur (12 et 12') est recouvert d'un mince revêtement protecteur léger. Le revêtement peut être choisi parmi les structures suivantes: (i) une toile à mailles tissées ouvertes; (ii) un polyester renforcé par fibres de verre; (iii) un ciment acrylique; (iv) une membrane déformable flexible; ou (v) une couche d'uréthane appliquée par projection; l'épaisseur du revêtement pouvant atteindre 5 mm. Les flotteurs peuvent être profilés pour améliorer l'écoulement laminaire de l'eau autour de la partie immergée des flotteurs.
