Floating docks are constructed with series 6005A T6 marine-grade aluminium alloy. They are supported by polyethylene rotomoulded floats, filled with high-density polystyrene foam. Rotational moulding and expanded polystyrene foam guarantee the perfect flotation and unsinkability of the floats.
The choice to use marine-grade aluminium frame and cleats for our dock systems is a testament to our commitment to quality and to environmental protection. Aluminium offers considerable benefits.
Lightness: Aluminium has a very high strength/weight ratio. At equal strength, an aluminium structure weighs 50% of the weight of a steel structure. This is a considerable advantage when handling the floating or fixed docks, as well as for transport costs.
Resistance and rigidity: Aluminium is used in structures built to last. Taipei 101 is one of the world’s tallest skyscrapers located in Taipei. With its aluminium façade, it was built to withstand winds of more than 200 km/h and a 5.0 earthquake measured by the Richter scale.
Sustainability: Aluminium naturally generates an oxide layer that protects it from corrosion. With a lifespan of more than fifty years, the facilities remain in perfect condition and do not require maintenance.
Design and manufacturing reliability: Aluminium meets a set of international design and implementation standards.
Recyclability: Aluminium is a material that is always 100% recyclable.
Total Cost of Ownership: When investing in a project with a long lifespan, it is important to consider the total cost of ownership. Several cost categories need to be considered.
- The purchase price
- The cost of transportation and installation (lower due to the lightweight of aluminium and modularity of the docks)
- The cost of installation (lower due to the lightweight of aluminium and faster installation process)
- The cost of maintenance (non-existent in the case of this material)
- The end-of-life cost, demolition, removal (non-existent, aluminium is 100% recyclable)
Aluminium is, therefore, more advantageous when one considers the total lifespan of a project in the marine industry.
For the decking of the floating dock, there is a wide selection of materials and colours available to choose from, ensuring that you will find the perfect design and colour that will match the aesthetic that you wish to achieve and integrate.
The Ecostyle deck, composed of polypropylene tiles, is extremely resistant to harsh weather and prolonged or intense use. This deck has a high force resistance and has been stress tested for both impact and static loads. It is a solid decking product and is easy to work with. The Ecostyle decking also offers enhanced protection against UV rays, is anti-slip rated, and fire-resistant and also resistant to chemical agents and hydrocarbons.
This decking comes with a 10-year warranty, requires no maintenance and is 100% recyclable. The installation and removal of these polypropylene tiles is made easy with a simple locking ring that locks or unlocks with one-quarter turn.
The Ecoteck composite wood deck, with its non-slip groove, provides a natural look and a high level of resistance. Warrantied for 3 years, it is 100% recyclable.
The wood decking is carefully selected according to the quality of the wood. It too, benefits from a non-slip groove, does not rot, and 100% recyclable.
