Eastern Floatation Systems, Inc.The floating concrete pier system we provide to our clients has beenrefined to include a polyethylene floatation pontoon with an integrated toptray. The top tray has been designed to receive a poured concrete walkingsurface. The walking surface can be customized with the client’s choiceof color, stamped pattern, texture, or logo. The floatation pontoon is filledwith expanded polystyrene which is steamed inside the pontoon resultingin a solid block of high density foam. This process creates the foundationfor a stable, durable walking surface that requires minimal maintenance.The trough system is primarily used for utilities and is easily accessedby removal of the aluminum and Trex deck cover. This design allowsfor quick installation and easy inspection.The Pro-Float System is adaptable to all marina applications and isonly limited by the imagination. Our exclusive patented modular designgives customers the flexibility to create any dock configuration, andthe footprint can be reconfigured as future needs and desires change.The cost of a concrete floating pier system is clearly outweighed by itsversatility, longevity and low maintenance requirements.EFS recognizes the unique needs of each customer’s project and hasadopted a sales initiative to meet those needs. Whether the projectrequires Pro-Float System sections, technical assistance or completeassembly and installation of a concrete floating pier system, EFS canmake it happen.1

Ultra high molecularweight plastic rollers onstainless steel pins areused to ensure smoothmaintenance free operation.All structural steel, channeltubes, frames and anglesare fabricated from steelconforming to ASTMstandard A-36. A hot dippedgalvanized coating is appliedto all steel in accordance witheither ASTM standard A-123or ASTM standard A-153.4
E A S T E R NF L O A T A T I O NS Y S T E M S ,I N C .Concrete SurfaceThe reinforced concretesurface has a minimum 28-daycompression strength of 5,000 psi,per ASTM standard C-94. The walkingdeck is poured in one monolithic pourover a galvanized welded wire reinforcementthat meets ASTM standard A-185. The standardsurface is trowel finished with a broom non-skidtexture applied transversely to the walking surface. Thefloat module allows for individual concrete pour or theinsertion of a pre-stressed, pre-cast concrete slab. Designoptions include choice of colors and stamped patterns.6
E A S T E R NF L O A T A T I O NS Y S T E M S ,I N C .System ConnectionThe floats are tied together through a combination ofwood whalers and galvanized steel thru-rod. Marinegrade wooden whalers are doubled and overlappedwith galvanized timber rings between the compressedlumber every twelve inches. All lumber is SouthernYellow Pine, No1 grade. All lumber is pressure treatedwith Chromate Copper Arsenate (C.C.A.) to one poundretention, conforming to AWPA standards.8At predetermined intervals, sleeves ofPVC are installed in the concrete rib area toact as conduits for the galvanized steelthru-rods. All thru-rods are ¾” threaddiameter, hot dipped galvanized steel. All steelin accordance with ASTMA-307. Hot dippedgalvanized in accordance with ASTMA-123.
E A S T E R NF L O A T A T I O NS Y S T E M S ,I N C .Floatation PontoonOur float is a rotationally molded polyethylene plastic tub with a patentedtray top area designed to receive re-enforced concrete walking surface. Apolyethylene plastic shell encasing a closed cell EPS (expanded polystyrene)core. The polyethylene is specially treated to resist UV deterioration. The EPSfoam core has a weight of .05-1.10 lb. per cubic ft. conforming to ASTMstandard specification C-578. The EPS foam has a water absorption ratemaximum of only three percent by volume as tested by ASTM method C-272.10
