Salvage Pontoon (Enclosed Pillows)
Specifically designed for use where water depth is a critical factor
The totally-enlosed, cylindrically-shaped bags are perfect for shallow water salvage, reducing the draft of a vessel, or raising an object closer to the surface. Salvage Pontoons also prove invaluable in cable and pipeline operations or where long tows are planned.
Available in both standard cylinder shape and elongated tubes
Constructed of heavy-duty ballistic-rated nylon fabric coated with urethane. This specially-coated fabric is:
Very resistant to abrasion
Not affected by most petro-chemicals
The pontoon design incorporates a replaceable, heavy-duty nylon webbing lift harness built into the body of the lift bag and has a safe working ratio of 6:1.
The harness arrangement maintains the lift bag in a horizontal position while insuring maximum stability.
CAUTION: Salvage Pontoons have multiple attachment points. All attachment points must be connected with the shackles provided and the load evenly distributed. Large pontoons require a separate lifting beam to evenly distribute the load.
