Steel Floating Dock FAQs

Are railings available on the Steel Framed Docks?

Yes, you can add a 36” high railing made of 3 galvanized-pipe rungs just about anywhere you want on your steel framed dock and walkway. Gates can be added, too. The Deluxe Models of our floating docks include a railing along one side of the walkway, the back and sides of the dock.

Once I place an order for a Steel Framed Floating Dock, how long will it take to be delivered and installed?

Our docks are all made to order and our lead time is typically 3-5 weeks depending on the season. The docks are built completely at our shop and then loaded onto a trailer and delivered and installed at your lake.

How long is the walkway that is included with the Steel Framed Floating Docks?

The 8’ x12’ and larger docks come standard with a 32-foot walkway.

Do the Deluxe Models come standard with the front gate and rail?

The front rail with or without a gate is NOT included in the standard railing packages for the Deluxe Steel Framed Floating Docks.

Can I have a longer or shorter walkway?

For the steel docks, we recommend a 32’ walkway which is included in our standard pricing. However, we know every situation is different, so you can get different lengths. The grade of your bank will help us determine what the best length of walkway would be for your lake or pond. Because every situation is different, it’s best if you can send us a photo of where you’d like the dock installed. Walkways over 32’ in length make it necessary to add outriggers and pole guides. Please call for shorter lengths.

How is the dock anchored?

All of the Standard Steel Framed Floating Docks are anchored with an 8’ wide steel base set into four 3’ deep piers of fast-setting concrete. There are no cables or pipes needed on standard setups.

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?

What is your service area?

We typically deliver and install our Steel Framed Docks within 500 miles of our location in Gainesville, TX – including into Oklahoma and Louisiana. If you need a dock and live outside our steel dock delivery service area, check out our aluminum floating docks which can be shipped nationwide.

How are the docks delivered?

Our docks are built up, in full, in our shop and then loaded onto a trailer pulled by a 4 x 4 pickup. The trailer is backed into the water and the dock is floated off (similar to unloading a boat). Docks 10’ x12’ and larger require an oversized hauling permit and you’ll need to get a special quote for this.
