Pontoon salvage bag

With the pontoon style enclosed flotation bags you can float almost any object or provide it with buoyancy!

Buitink's enclosed flotation bags

Buitink Technology's enclosed flotation bags can be used for the salvage of ships and vehicles that have fallen into the water. The enclosed flotation bags can also be used for the installation of pipes and pipelines in water and at sea. In addition, there are numerous emergency situations where enclosed flotation bags can be used; lying, standing, inside or outside the construction of a ship, vehicle or other object.




Features of our pontoon flotation bags

Buitink Technology's pontoon style enclosed flotation bags have a number of important and distinctive characteristics.

  • Due to the polyester fabric and its EVA/PVC copolymer coating, the material is very flexible and also very easy to repair (with glue or a hairdryer with hot air);
  • Pontoon style flotation bags are made of a very strong coated polyester fabric with a tensile strength of no less than 8,000 N/5 cm;
  • Due to the high-strength polyester fabric type IV, the material with which the enclosed flotation bags are made has a puncture resistance of no less than 2,150 N (in contrast to many competing products that only reach 1,750 N);
  • Buitink Technology's enclosed flotation bags have no sharp corners (they are rounded off and smooth), which makes these enclosed flotation bags more robust and less likely to be damaged;
  • Buitink Technology's enclosed flotation bags are lightweight! Up to 50% lighter than the competition's enclosed flotation bags, while the lift capacity is at least 10% higher;
  • The enclosed flotation bags require little maintenance and are very easy to clean;
  • We can personalise the bags and provide them with your logo and desired print! That means that you can sell them under your own label if so required.
