RAMPS & GANGWAYS
Piers & Pilings
Our pier structures are made of wood, aluminum, or steel and extend into and over the water as a dock or access to your floating dock. Supported by wood or steel pilings, they are great for shallow or fluctuating water depths.
Piers and pier docks vary in length and the height above the water.
Cedar Log Docks
Sometimes preferred by fish and fisherman alike, the all cedar log dock relies solely upon cedar for flotation. It is strong and solid on the water and available in many configurations, also with a variety of choices for decking and trim.
The cedar log dock typically sits 16" - 20" above the water.
Ramps & Gangways
Ramps and gangways are highly individualized to the property and owner. They are commonly made from wood or aluminum with wood or polypropylene decking panels such as ThruFlow™. Single, double or no handrail options are available.
The length and support of the ramp/gangway varies by site.
Ramps & Gangways
Built for You... Built to Last... Built for Memories
Ramps & Gangways, for our purposes, are interchangeable terms meaning a raised walkway that provides you an easy transition from your shoreline onto your dock.
They come in many shapes and sizes, making them very versatile. We make them from wood, aluminum or steel, some include components of all of these materials.
Our most popular ramp is the aluminum ramp for its lightweight and beautiful handrail options which include left, right or dual handrails. If you have a busy dock with dogs and kids running up and down the ramp this can save you an unexpected splash in the lake!
Popular sizes are 3' - 4' wide and 20' to 24' long. To help you determine the proper sizing of your ramp, a site assessment will take into account things like fluctuation of lake or river levels, installation type, distance from shore, etc. Depending on the type of ramp, your decking choices include Premium cedar decking, ThruFlow™, Trex™. or MoistureShield™.
While wood and steel ramps are built on site, aluminum ramps are manufactured elsewhere, arrive completed and only require installation at your site.
