The abutment is the first element in the construction of a boat bridge. This is a solution constructed into the shore or on the waterline and remains fastened to the ground and provides access to the boat bridge over a gangway. An abutment is not always necessary; however, is recommended in most instances. As a rule, the abutment is constructed on four screw piles or using concrete.
The abutment constructed on screw piles has a metal frame.
Dimensions of an abutment on a screw pile: width 1.2 m, length 1.4 m (1.68 m2)
Concrete abutment dimensions: width 1.4 m, length 0.8 m (1.12 m2)
The abutment is installed at a right angle to the waterline.
The gangway is attached to the abutment.
The abutment is constructed using timber or concrete (type and number of piles for the product).
