            Maritime & Ports

            Every day cabin operators in the maritime industry are involved in moving containers, raw materials and other cargo, or they are involved in steering a vessel. In this respect it is important that the operator’s work environment is as safe and comfortable as possible. Merford Cabins supplies cabins and control rooms that are specifically developed for maritime conditions. This includes the shipbuilding industry. Furthermore, we supply noise control solutions for yachts and ships, and we install sound insulating, fireproof and explosion-proof doors.

            Working safely and efficiently
            A cabin is not an ordinary workplace, but it is an important one. It is important for a cabin to be safe, ergonomic and functional. After all, an operator works more efficiently in a pleasant work environment. Merford Cabins develops, manufactures and supplies cabins for heavy lifting, container handling, bulk handling and for shipbuilding. Naturally our cabins comply with all legislated requirements and they can be fully customised to meet the wishes of our clients: we supply standard cabins, but we are also a reliable partner when it comes to custom-made cabins.

            Sound control in the shipbuilding industry
            Government laws and regulations provide for a better sound climate and this is important in the shipbuilding industry as well. Noise control is not only important on working ships, it is just as important for luxury yachts. Merford helps you control undesirable noise and vibrations in various ways. From soundproof doors to acoustic materials and ventilation components. We remedy noise problems and guarantee quality; all of our products are IMO-certified and extensively tested.

            Safe ship’s doors
            The doors on a ship are exposed to all kinds of influences. This is why they must meet special requirements. We install fireproof, explosion-proof and sound insulating doors for the engine room, for example. And of course watertight doors! At Merford Special Doors we think in terms of solutions and ensure that the doors meet all legislated quality criteria and standards.

              In 2014, Merford supplied a cabin to Boskalis for its Manu Pekka dredger. In 2014 and 2015, a new backhoe dredger was installed on the ship and Merford was asked to develop an operator cabin for this crane. This type of crane is normally used in the mining sector. Therefore, a standard cabin was not an option. Merford produced a cabin that improves the crane’s dredging performance and also equipped the cabin with several useful extras.

              The German crane construction company Tobies awarded Merford a contract for the construction of an operator cabin for several German inland ports in cities such as Neuss, Cologne and Duisburg. Because there is less space, the cabin's dimensions are smaller than the normal wharf cranes at seaport terminals. Nevertheless, the available space is put to optimal use and all cranes are equipped with a comfortable and efficient cabin equipped with a standing Ergoseat.
