Hendriks precon provides moulds for concrete docks
Floating concrete piers are an often-used solution for small and large marinas and harbours. In Norway, these are produced and supplied by Helgeland Marinersystems, among others. For their production, the company relies on special moulds which have been developed and manufactured by Hendriks precon.
The concrete piers combine various attractive properties which definitely prove their value in the wet surroundings: they require little maintenance, have a long life span and are distinguished by an excellent load capacity and good stability. Compared with steel, wood or plastic variants, the concrete version is durable in demanding environments and heavy weather conditions.
Quick and easy operation
Every marina is different and therefore the necessary design and production freedom is also expected in the composition of floating piers. That is why the moulds for these piers are also subject to the necessary requirements. The pier moulds from Hendriks precon are extremely durable and retain their shape so that the concrete elements have great precision.
Moreover, the moulds lend themselves to self-compacting concrete and are accurate and quick to operate, requiring just a minimum of labour. The lowest part of the sides are adjustable so that variation is possible in both the height as well as the length.
The supply consists of two different moulds, of which one is for widths of 240, 300, 320 and 400 cm and one is for widths of 300, 320, 400 and 500 cm. The length can be varied from 1080 to 2040 cm, in steps of 120 cm. Depending on the mould, the height varies from 105 to 200 cm. The mould is also available with fitting pieces in order to be able to also make adjustments in the width.
The pier moulds from Hendriks precon have a platform all round on which you can work safely, making the finishing surfaces properly accessible. This speeds up not only the work activities but it also provides quite a bit more ease of use than what is available with the traditional methods.
