Our low-maintenance modular commercial docks are the perfect blend of beauty and durability for your marina, private yacht club, resort, or city harbor.

Durable

  • Our aluminum floating docks are made with strong marine grade extruded aluminum alloy
  • Can easily withstand harsh weather and the constant flow of pedestrians and golf carts
  • Resistant to corrosion from salt water, chemicals, and pollution thanks to a permanent film of natural oxide
  • Our floating docks require much less maintenance than steel docks

Expertise you can count on for floating docks

Speedy turnaround

We manufacture our aluminum docks and gangways right in our Canadian plant, eliminating the need to work with a separate supplier. Plus, our large inventory on hand prevents supply chain delays.

Experienced engineers

In addition to the hundreds of structural extruded aluminum projects we’ve designed and built, we also have numerous awards under our belt. This includes the Extrusion Technology Foundation’s Design Competition Award in the structural category, which we won a 3rd time in 2022.

Built to code

All of our design specifications meet local, regional, and national building codes and professional standards as required. All of our technical designs and calculations for our aluminum marine structures bear the seal of one of our professional engineers.
