Maran

Maran

The Maran is our dual Floathouse configuration. It incorporates a special mechanism that provides for high stability, called a pantograph-mechanism. With this mechanism, two Floathouses together, side-by-side, both achieve high levels of stability against rolling. More than two Floathouses can be connected together in the same fashion to improve stability further.

Use Cases
