Walcon Marine Australasia pride them selves on Occupational health and safety and environmental safety. Walcon Marine’s boardwalk method of construction and installation is designed to reduce the environmental impact on the site and we can provide concrete abutment/pathways if required which can be designed and constructed to act as the pillar for the entry point of the boardwalk section and offer a smooth transition from concrete to the boardwalk deck in accordance with Australian standards (AS1428).
Walcon Marine utilises the “Diamond Pier” system which is a proven and reliable footing arrangement for most type of application constructed entirely in FPR, the frames are preassembled in our factory and delivered to site ready for installation with each deck manually carried to position and laid on the pier extensions and securely bolted together. FRP decking will be laid and secured to the FRP frames once in place.
Decking option most commonly in this design is FRP micro Mesh grating which is installed using 316 SS fasteners to FRP frame work. This grating is selected as it offers sun light to filter through the structure allowing a more natural environment under the boardwalk structure. Additionally the grating remains cleaner as natural debris such as bird faeces fall through the grating. A choice of Micro Mesh 8mm square openings or Mini Mesh with 12mm square openings is available Both specifications are available in a large range of colour
Also available is a wide range of timber composite materials that are durable & long lasting, an excellent alternative to natural timbers.
The structure and materials are effectively maintenance free, however Walcon recommends an annual maintenance inspection and check of all fasteners and materials and can carry this out on behalf of the client.
The structure is supported by a 10 year warranty on materials and workmanship.
