WALK ON WATER
Lancer industries are proud to offer one of the most unique temporary docking systems in the world. The features of the Airodock are completely revolutionary; no other product on the market is able to offer this system or characteristics.
One of the strengths of Airodock’s design is its simple construction. This allows for individual customer needs such as length, shape or layout of existing fittings. It is also light, strong, safe and stable. Construction, turnaround time and delivery are very quick, as well as being very cost effective compared with traditional docking systems.
Initially, the Airodock was primarily designed as a temporary wharf or jetty, useful at a holiday house or any temporary aquatic event. Because of its popularity and ease of use, it has also been adapted to be used as a floatplane walkway, water skiing station, marina system and much more.
Airodock makes for the perfect superyacht transom "beach" or swim platform. It's high stability makes for the perfect extension of your superyacht, while its ease of storage and inflation makes life easy for your crew and keeps storage space use to a minimum.
Airodock is also ideal for a temporary berth - making boarding tenders a breeze while also creating a safe buffer between boats. Airodock is highly customisable - simply contact us for a hassle-free quote for your Airodock system.
Airodock is a fantastic companion for watersport events. The extreme stability of the system means that you can fill the surface area with people and the platform will remain firm and steady. This is important when working in demanding conditions like watersport events or with children.
Airodock is light, durable and easy to use and transport - making it the best solution on the market for temporary docking at watersport events.
Implement simple, functional temporary docking with the Airodock system. Ideal for a holiday home or similar when you won't be there all year round - simply inflate or deflate and store your custom Airodock system as necessary.
Airodock's stability makes it a temporary wharf that people of all ages can use safely - and its ease of set-up means less time sorting out the jetty and more time enjoying the water.
Airodock is made from outer layers of Hypalon with a high tensile strength nylon thread joining the surfaces. A thick density of threads insures strength and built in redundancy. This allows the Airodock to be inflated to an operating pressure that creates a solid stable platform.
The fabric is 200mm high and can layer to create steps.
The surface has a non slip texture that is durable. This can be cleaned and repaired using traditional inflatable boat methods.
The manufacturing of the Airodock uses a modified method of inflatable boat construction. Lancers has used it world leading manufacturing methods to research and develop a product which meets the highest standards.
Standard fittings include D rings, inflation valves and a pressure relief valve. Under water stabilisers similar to those found on list rafts are attached to the underside of the Airodock to increase stability.
Airodock is an extremely stable platform. On standard width dock (1.4m) there is over 100kgs of buoyancy for every 750mm. It is possible to stand on the edge of the platform safely.
Initially users may be hesitant and a natural walking style is recommended for maximum stability. The sensation is like “walking on water”.
The key to a stable Airodock is correct inflation and have an end fixed as firmly to an adjoining solid surface such as a transom, beach or wharf.
While Airodock comes in standard sizes, most are customised to suit individual users. This creates a product which is fit for purpose and meets requirements. Standard sizes are; 1.4m x 5m, 1.4m x 10m, 2.8m x 3m and 2.8m x 5m.
There are few constraints in the shapes that can be produced. Any width or length can be produced; shapes can be integral to each other or individual.
When considering Airodock it is advised that Lancer is consulted at an early stage. By working together at an early stage the end result is a dock that does what you require.
