Floating dock kits are also available and they carry over 20 different sizes of polystyrene, foam core floats.

These floats are impervious to gasoline, oil and salt water. A complete line of accessories including ladders, bumpers, rub rails, piling caps and dock cleats is also available. Their unique “modular hoop piling holders” allow you to put a large “U-bolt” bracket assembly onto existing pilings of various diameters. This allows you to mount their docks to pilings that are already in place.

They also offer various types of decking materials that can be used on docks and swim rafts like their low-density polyethylene combined with cedar that will not decay or delaminate. Their dock systems are designed so that the decking runs lengthwise - not side-to-side which is more common. Running the decking lengthwise maximizes the usage of the linear feet of the boards. For example, you can buy 8' long 2 x 6's for an 8' dock section or you can purchase 10', 16' or 20' lengths for longer sections.

This kit manufacturer will also produce a custom kit package for you. They are located in Rochester, New York.
