Aluminum Floating Dock FAQs

Once I place an order for a dock, how long will it take to be delivered?

All of our docks are built to order and our lead time is typically 3-5 weeks depending on the season.

Can I have an Aluminum Framed Floating dock shipped to my house?

Yes, residential delivery is available at an additional charge. The docks ship on large, heavy pallets, so a tractor or forklift is needed to unload them.

What walkway lengths are available on the Aluminum Docks?

We offer two walkway lengths for the aluminum docks. A (10') walkway works well if you have a constant water level on your pond, or a (20') walkway if you have a water fluctuation level of 4' or less. We don't offer a longer walkway than (20') on the Aluminum Docks.

How are the Aluminum Framed Floating Docks anchored?

The sectional aluminum docks are designed to be self-installed using a 10' steel base anchored with 4 steel stakes. In extreme circumstances, you can relocate the base.

What is the decking made of?

For our floating docks, we use a composite decking material called TimberTech. We’ve chosen TimberTech because it is one of the densest decking products on the market, as you can see from the chart below.

Does the decking come in different colors?

All docks come standard with Dark Teak colored TimberTech decking. Maritime Grey is available at no additional charge. Other color options may be available for an additional charge. Lead time may vary for colors other than the Dark Teak. Please call for more options.

Can I get an awning on an aluminum framed floating dock?

Awnings are not available on any of the aluminum docks. The powder coated dock table with umbrella is a popular add-on to provide some shade. If you really want an awning, check out our floating steel framed docks.

Can I get railings on my Aluminum Framed Floating Dock?

Yes. For an additional fee you can add a 32" high aluminum, powder coated rail anywhere you want on any of the aluminum docks and walkways.
