Breaking waves for 2021
Installed in single, double, four and five layering options, Wave Breakers are the ideal solution to stop watercraft from entering a specific zone. Used in larger layers and changing configurations, Wave Breakers become wave attenuators, reducing up to 90% of a wave’s energy; preserving the wave’s direction whilst reducing the energy behind it. Connected together by two or more steel cables housed inside an EPDM rubber sleeve, Wave Breakers can hold signage, navigation lights and razor wire, allowing them to be used in residential, marina, harbour and military applications.
WMS will also be showing a new range of Pipe Floats. Commonly used for dredging, mining and drainage of waste materials, as well as for cables, the Pipe Floats are made from HDPE and filled with either PU (polyurethane) or PS (polystyrene); should any cracking or damage occur, they will remain buoyant until they are replaced. The HDPE construction is corrosion resistant giving a lifespan three times that of concrete or steel pipe floats; it is also highly recyclable. WMS reports considerable interest in the Pipe Floats from the construction industry.
Rotodock pontoons and Sunnydock modular cubes, WMS’ most popular floating structures, will make their regular appearance. The team at WMS say they “are looking forward immensely to seeing old friends and meeting new ones at the 2021 show (as we were to the 2020 show!) and wish everyone a safe and healthy time until then”.
