Kayak launch ramp

Worcester

 

Jul 2019

Brief

To build and install an additional kayak launch ramp to an existing mooring on the River Severn which was previously installed by RA Marine Ltd, to allow easy kayak access at varying water levels.  

Solution

A bespoke built 12-degree aluminium ramp which was decked in GRP grid decking with composite cladding. 

Challenges

As the River Severn has a seasonal water level variation of 16ft, careful consideration had to be made as to the type of materials we used as they had to be suitable to withstand being submerged for periods of time.
