Shipping Container Footings

Shipping container footings

Shipping containers need to be secured correctly before used in various statistic applications. There are many ways to secure the container to the ground with the use of shipping container footings.

Although there are various ways to provide footing to shipping containers, following are the three modes we strongly suggest:

  • Welding twist locks to footing posts
  • Using dovetail twist lock/boltable twist lock and attach to the base slab by bolts.
  • By welding hook bolts to the body of the twist lock.

At Oceanlink Marine Services, we offer a wide range of twist locks and container securing items for shipping container footings.

Marine Coating for Ships, Boats and Yachts in Australia

marine coating

Marine coatings are essential to maritime industry, it is a term that is used for a range of coatings that helps protect the vessel from the harsh marine environment. Thereby, increasing the lifetime of your vessel and the productivity at the shipyard.

At Oceanlink Marine Services, we offer technical assistance towards choosing the right paint coating for your vessel. Contact us today with your requirements for Marine Coating requirements. We offer Australia wide delivery.

Marine Coating Paints

The environment to which the part of the ship is exposed plays an important role in deciding the type of marine paint to be applied to that structure. The painting of the external ship has been divided into 3 regions:

Below the water line

Usually, the bottom of the ship will have a priming coat of corrosion inhibiting paint followed by an antifouling paint. Corrosion inhibiting paints are applied to reduce corrosion caused by exposure of steel to seawater. Antifouling paints are used to reduce the effects of biofouling: the growth of algae, plants, and animals on the ships hull, which decreases the ships maximum speed. Antifouling paints should not come in direct contact with the ships steel hull as it may lead to corrosion.

Above the water line

This is also known as the boot topping region which includes the hull above the water-line, interiors, deck areas, or basically all the areas above the waterline. The marine paints help in maintaining colour and finish while protecting from damage caused by harsh marine conditions such as salt spray, abrasion through cargo handling, UV radiation, hull expansion, and contraction.

Special coatings

Ship deck and surfaces can be extremely slippery when wet in a marine environment. Anti-slip protection is necessary to protect the employees and passengers from accidents in the vessel. Additionally, the marine paint should be able to withstand the wear and tear that comes with traffic.

Wherever aluminum superstructures have been fitted, marine grade zinc chromate paints are applied. Under no circumstance should lead-based paints to be applied to aluminum surfaces.

Types of marine paints

It is important to protect your vessel with consistent maintenance by using the best quality paint products. The following will give you a brief understanding of each type of paint.

Antifouling Paints

It is essential to use antifouling paints to protect your boat from biofouling agents such as barnacles, weeds, and slime which built up on your hull over time causing a decreasing the maximum speed of your vessel.

Topcoat finishes

This paint coating is used for the hull, deck, interior and bilge to deliver durable, safe solutions that will stand the test of time. This includes durability in extreme weather, gloss retention and UV resistance.


This is designed to protect timber/wood against moisture, alcohol spills, detergents and other harsh elements. This tough, flexible and long-lasting coating also expands and contracts with changing weather conditions.
