Floating Walkways are used as an alternative solution for walkaways or bridges, especially over water bodies. Floating Walkways can be defined as linear pantoon systems constructed by joining multiple modules. They require the assembly of each panel/block and are hence ready to use. The surface of Floating Walkways is skid-proof and has enough walk-around space. These walkaways can even have the provision for security systems. Most Floating Walkways are recyclable and environment friendly. They can be removed and moved from one location to another, especially for maintenance applications. Accordingly, these walkways are suitable for both temporary and permanent installations. The life expectancy of Floating Walkways is generally about 25 years. They are able to withstand wear and tear in an aqueous environment.
Floating walkways are designed to bear the environmental load of waves, wind, and water currents. Consumers prefer synthetic walkway systems over wooden ones as they are easy to maintain. Additionally, these walkways are made in such a way that a pressure washer is sufficient for maintenance and cleaning work. Moreover, floating walkways can be removed during bad weather, especially the plastic ones. Another advantage of Floating Walkways is the easy change of design, A T-shaped walkway can be easily changed into a rectangular or semi-circular design. Many accessories and attachments are available to aid the setup of floating walkways. They include ladders, pile brackets, seabed anchors, mooring fenders, fender systems with small cleats, dog-bone connectors with various size ranges, and large socket cleats. Floating Walkways are being increasingly adopted for pedestrian walkways, handicapped access, snowmobiles, wetlands and marshes, golf cart bridges, and beach access among other applications.
One of the prime factors driving the floating walkways market is the shift toward a natural and greener ambience in the hospitality industry. Another factor driving sales of floating walkways is the increase in focus on cleaning and maintenance of water bodies. Additionally, rise in marine infrastructure development is a factor boosting sales of floating walkways. Besides, there are wetlands in many regions across the globe. Access to these wetlands can be developed using Floating Walkways. A popular application of floating walkways is the creation of a pedestrian pathway between the coasts of two islands. Floating Walkways are being increasingly adopted for landscape architecture and designing public spaces. There are many floating markets or haat bazaars, especially in Asian countries, and they are also adopting Floating Walkways. New advancements in residential exterior landscaping allow fo the installation of small pathways using floating walkways over ponds. These factors are likely to fuel the floating walkways market in the coming years. However, end-users’ reluctance in adopting floating walkways may present a challenge for manufacturers to expand their footprint and increase their customer base.
