Dock Steps Provide Safe Access to the Beach

Dock Steps with Handrails

Dock Steps from Pier & Waterfront Solutions (PWS) solve many problems for property owners. All-aluminum steps are available in (4) and (6) step configurations. These will never rust, rot, or require maintenance.

Is your ramp or ladder too steep or uncomfortable for your family to use? Is a ladder too hard to climb at the end of your dock? It’s time to look at aluminum steps. A set of dock steps can be an excellent alternative to access your dock. 

                      Dock steps

Use them:

  1. Anywhere along the edge of your dock;
  2. Use them in place of a ramp if it is too steep to get comfortably to your dock;
  3. Use them to get from a seawall to the beach or directly to your dock; or
  4. To access the deck on your house. (no wood to rot or paint)

Is your embankment too high for even a (6) step unit?

These versatile steps join together to form longer units. You are not limited to 4 or 6 steps.

Starting with four steps, you can go to 6, 8, 10, or 12 steps. Use them to go down rough or slippery embankments to make a steady incline. Why risk a fall or injury?

The example above shows a combined (4) and (6) step unit, to form gradual access to the dock.

These versatile steps can be mounted on a seawall for access to the beach also. You don’t have to risk a fall on the slippery, wet embankment to get to your beach or dock. Steps are a natural solution to your landscaping issues.

          Need something even longer? 

PWS custom-builds steps in whatever size and shape you need.

Maybe steps are not for you!

How about a 16′ up to 24′ gangway? 

A gangway is another alternative to consider. Use an all-aluminum walkway from a seawall or embankment to the beach. Don’t let rip-rap or steep embankments hold you back.  No need to risk twisting your ankle!

Gangways are available in 16′, 20′ and 24′ lengths.

Steps or gangways can also be used to gain access to a deck at your house or down a steep parking area to the house. Be sure to check out the gangway and step units in our front “pond” display.
