Limehouse Basin Gets Latest Pontoon Decking System

By Stuart Burns December 9, 2014

Limehouse Basin Marina is located in central London between the City of London and Canary Wharf, connecting the River Lee (via the Limehouse Cut), the Regents Canal and the River Thames. The 90 berth marina, owned by British Waterways Marinas, are replacing their wooden pontoon decking with the latest in anti-slip, long lasting and low maintenance pontoon decking from Dura Composites.

Following side by side tests, Dura Grating Mini Mesh has been selected by Matthew Freeman of British Waterways Marinas as the most suitable pontoon deck to replace the 15 year old wooden decking. The new Dura Grating will need very limited maintenance since it never needs painting or staining, does not rot or warp, and is very durable and hard wearing even under heavy duty usage.

The berth holders are delighted with the new decking solution especially since all year round residents will have much more confidence when navigating pontoons in the dark or in cold and slippery conditions.

Matthew Freeman commented: "We are delighted with the progress of the install to date. Our decision to install Dura Grating was mainly about safety and durability and choosing a company that we can trust to provide a good back up service and who care about what they are supplying"

Limehouse Basin Marina is just upriver from London South Dock Marina where Dura Composites recently undertook supply and installation of the largest single supply of the pontoon system in the UK for client Southwark Council.
