ABC series platforms
Assembly principle of ABC platform
Assembly principle of ABC series pontoon platform is not complicated. Platform is assembled connecting pontoons into the rows using U profile on the bottom to secure al the elements. Afterwards, joists are placed in mounting locations in between every pontoon, to connect two pontoon rows to form a platform, as well as additionally securing the pontoon rows together. Next step is mounting of additional strengthening elements and decking, after which all other elements could be mounted. Simple as ABC.

Different types of ABC platforms

ABC platforms for easy shipping
On European roads in many cases the width of the vehicles and cargo are very limited, which makes long route shipping difficult. In order to solve such problem, we have developed a catamaran which could be split into two parts for shipping, fitting into the standard widely utilised eurotent lorry. When delivered, two parts could be assembled very fast and easily on the spot just using some basic equipment.
