Tyne Gangway products are manufactured with Marine Grade Aluminium. Marine Grade Aluminium is lightweight, reducing imposed loads to around a third of the weight of steel. Small aluminium gangways can be easily manoeuvred and larger aluminium installations require smaller capacity cranage.
Marine Grade Aluminium is maintenance free with no requirement for additional surface protection processes whereas steel requires galvanising or painting, along with regular inspection/corrosion preventive maintenance.
Marine Grade Aluminium self-heals and oxidises over time, increasing the strength of the structure whereas steel corrodes rapidly over time, in exposed marine environments, reducing the strength of the structure.
