Sectional Barges (Plastic Pontoons)
Pacific7 are the only providers in New Zealand for the hire of pontoons for events, temporary berthage or wharves.
Plastic Pontoons are single modular pieces made out of UV resistant, low density linear polyethylene (LLPE) suitable for New Zealand conditions. Each Individual pontoon is clipped together to form any size or shape that is required. They can be clipped on top of each other for height requirements and can be made as long or short as required. They fit together like building blocks.
Our pontoons will not rust or corrode. They are an excellent replacements for old steel or aluminium pontoons.
Our pontoons have also been used in many cases by construction companies for floating platforms for plant such as pumps or as floating platforms for men to work from in drains or under wharves. They have been used for pipeline repairs under wharves or retaining wall construction. They can be formed into a multitude of arrangements and shapes to suit all sorts of needs. They are flexible and adaptable and can be anchored, piled or positioned using a number of different means.
Types of events for Pontoon Hire:
- Fireworks displays
- Floating Stages

No consent has ever been required for the temporary mooring or anchoring of our pontoons for the multitude of uses that they have had.
