Description of the Floating Docks:
Using a floating dock can have many advantages that will save you both the time and work compared to standard free-standing docks. A floating dock’s self levelling and its ability to maintain its stability are among the main advantages when you use a floating dock system.
FLOE’s floating dock systems are built with heavy duty extruded aluminum frame as its backbone, forming a rigid and stable base perfect for the walking surface. Another key feature of our floating docks is a patented heavy duty outer frame that has a underside track system allowing you to bolt on floats, anchoring systems anywhere you want them.
Continue to read below for more features of our floating docks.
- Heavy duty extruded aluminum frame with track system which allows you to bolt on floats, wheel kits or anchoring systems.
- Foam filled floats made of polystyrene resin containing UV inhibitors.
- Modular design – sections come in 3’, 4’, 5’, 6’ and 8’ widths and 16’, 20’ and 24’ lengths. Other components are sundecks, wedges and shore-end ramps.
Ramps & Wedges
Maintenance-free aluminum decking with a baked on powder coating giving the look of real wood.
Water resistant anti-slip surface that protects your dock from lifting wave and the storm surge effect. The decking is environmentally friendly as it allows submerged aquatic vegetation to grow.
Maintenance-free aluminum decking with baked on anti-ski surface. The dock has a ribbed underside which allows air to move freely keeping the dock cool.
Gorgeous cedar decking constructed with 5/4” radius edged boards, attached with stainless steel fasteners.
Shallow Water Anchoring
- For water depths less than 10’, FLOE offers an aluminum guide-pole and mounting bracket system to secure and stabilize the dock.
- Auger-end so you can simply screw them into the lake bottom.
- Bracket allows the dock to smoothly raise and lower with water fluctuations.
- Available in 9’, 13’ 6” and 18’ lengths.
Deep Water Anchoring
- For water depths greater than 10’, pilings and custom piling loops can be used to secure the sections.
- Cable and concrete anchors can also be used to secure your dock system.
Patented Track System
Floating Dock Advantage
If you answer “yes” to any of the questions below, you should consider a FLOE floating system:
Do you have frequent or major water depth fluctuation?
A floating dock is always self-leveling so you avoid the time and work associated with raising and lowering a free-standing dock.
Do you have water depths that exceed 8 feet?
Free-standing docks can get unstable in deeper water, while a floating system maintains its stability.
Do you have an unusually soft lake bottom?
Free-standing docks can need constant adjusting and leveling due to non-stop settling.
Why a FLOE engineered floating system is a better choice.
This completely modular system with FLOE’s patented frame incorporates a track on all sides enabling you to create a custom floating dock for your residential waterfront property or a full blown multi-slip commercial marina.
Rugged Dock Frame
FLOE’s rigid, heavy duty extruded aluminum frame is the backbone to the floating dock system. It provides a solid, stable base for the walking surface and is supported by foam filled, rotationally molded floats.
The patented heavy duty outer frame also incorporates a track system on the underside, which allows you to bolt on floats, wheel kits or anchoring systems where you want them.
Rugged, long-lasting, foam-filled floats are made of virgin polystyrene resin containing UV inhibitors. Impervious to gas, oil and other chemicals. Attach anywhere to dock frame with FLOE’s exclusive track system.
FLOE floats are filled with steamed polystyrene foam for added strength and reduced water absorption. FLOE dock floats are backed by an industry leading full 15 Year Limited Warranty, which meets and exceeds USACOE specifications!
Floating Dock Track System:
FLOE’s patented track system allows you to add hinges, guide-poles and other accessories anywhere along the dock’s outer frame. This allows you to create a custom system with standard components.
For water depths under 10’, FLOE offers an aluminum guide-pole and mounting bracket system for securing and stabilizing the dock sections. These guide-poles have an auger end so you can twist them into the lake bottom. The bracket allows the dock to smoothly raise and lower with water fluctuations.
For water depths greater than 10’, pilings and custom piling loops can be used to secure the sections, or an appropriate cable and anchor system can be designed. (Consult with a professional installer for these applications.)
