Standing docks work well on firm shore bottoms in shallow to moderate water depths. The aluminum welded 5 sided leg design and 4-inch side rails ensure stability and strength especially in high wave areas. ShoreMaster’s standing docks are extremely configurable to match any layout you desire. Not a fan of straight lines and sharp corners? ShoreMaster offers exclusive 45 and 90-degree dock sections to round out your dock system without sacrificing functionality.
Wheel-In docks make installation and removal hassle-free no matter the size of your system. Adjustable screw legs offer 4 different height options and allow for easy maneuvering around obstacles like rocks or logs. ShoreMaster’s 24-inch Poly Tires have rigid sidewalls to prevent deflation and specialized pigments to prevent cracking and disintegration due to high UV exposure. Poly Tires are self-filling and draining to reduce weight when wheeling in and out each year.
Floating docks can be placed in any location a standing or wheel-in dock can plus more! They are great for waterfronts with soft or extremely muddy bottoms. If you have an uneven shoreline, fluctuating water levels or deep water a floating dock is your answer. You’ll never have to adjust your dock height to fluctuating water levels again! Floating docks are a great option if you have a boat or jet ski moving with the water level allowing you to get on or off your watercraft with ease.
