SeaSpan Access Gangways

Access Gangways are a hugely important component of any well designed marina and an elegant gangway will serve as an introductory focal point to the development. Above all our gangways are designed and built without compromise so as to deliver many years of continuous service.

Each one we supply has its own unique set of requirements and our design engineers take pride in making sure that all structures bearing our name are easily capable of withstanding harsh conditions whilst providing pedestrians with a safe and secure access. For additional peace of mind and assurance, all structures are independently assessed and backed up by external consulting engineers.

The gangways are available in standard widths and lengths and are constructed in either mild steel or aluminium. Individual shore frames are incorporated to allow installation onto a wide variety of structures such as sheet piled and concrete harbour walls and quays, breakwater platforms and piers. Where necessary heavy duty pivots are incorporated into our designs to minimise lateral stresses, avoiding overloading.  A variety of rollers and "T" pins are also installed onto landing pontoons to provide rise fall movement in tidal zones.

Standard anti corrosion protection is by way of hot-dip galvanising and we can also provide special high performance painted finishes for a more individual look.

To complement our bridges, we are able to provide a wide choice of security railings and gates, these are manufactured by us to provide an individual bespoke design and can incorporate logos, place names and motif's. Access locks and keypads to provide secure entry to authorised users, can also be installed.
