LOW PROFILE FLOATING DOCKS
Free Shipping and Free Accessory Kit with cedar, poly, or aluminum dock system purchase!
Patriot Low Profile Floating Docks are a great addition to any lake. These docks sit closer to the water than standard truss-framed docks allowing easy access in and out of the water. The dock frames measure 96”L x 48”W x 4-1/2”H and are made from marine-grade aluminum. They can be used in shallow or deep water. A wide variety of design options can be configured such as a straight dock, "L" or "T" shaped dock or a patio design.
The kit contains the frame as well as attractive brown or gray aluminum decking, cedar decking or poly decking, foam filled floats, piling sleeves and hinge kit(s).
Low-Profile frames can be directly bolted together or joined together with a hinge kit; end to end, perpendicular or in parallel. A hinge kit is suggested every 16ft. The hinge kit allows for approximately 25 degrees of articulation between frames which is great for fluctuating water levels. The included piling sleeve is used to attach 1-1/2" I.D. piling pipes to the dock frames.
Floating docks are excellent in deep or fluctuating water levels and extremely soft lake bottoms. Rectangular foam filled floats are used to support the floating pier. It is recommended that two rectangular floats are used for every 8ft of dock frame. Floating docks require little maintenance, as there are no post heights to adjust. Floating docks can be pulled up on shore or on smaller bodies of water they can be left in place during the winter. (Depending upon ice movement during the spring.) Floating docks are typically anchored in place using piling sleeves and posts that are driven down into the lake bottom. In especially deep water situations multiple crossing anchors can be used to hold the dock in position.
NOTE: Our customers are responsible for their own anchoring method and supplies depending upon their individual situation. We can help with ideas if needed.
