Is a Floating Dock in your future?

Is a Floating Dock in your future?

Not all floating dock systems are created equal. Some are better than others. 

For many waterfronts, a floating dock system is a perfect fit. ShoreMaster PolyDock systems float on the water and remain stable in waves up to two feet.

How Does it Work?

A floating dock is usually a platform supported on air-tight, buoyant floats. In the case of a PolyDock, the platform is part of the float system. The platform serves two purposes in this case. It is available in 4′ and 6′ widths for more stability.

A gangway connects the floating dock system to the shoreline. The docks are easy for seasonal boat owners to install and remove. 

Floating docks are anchored into the water at the shore end and, depending on the dock’s length, at the water end. 



Benefits of a Floating Dock

Floating docks are popular for inland lake shorelines. It’s easy to see why. It’s simple to install, add to, and remove modules, allowing the dock’s design to change.

Does a floating dock have to be removed in the winter?

Standard practice dictates you remove the dock in the winter. On small bodies of water, they can be allowed to freeze in place. Freezing in place can occur when there little chance of ice movement in the winter and early spring. If there is any movement, you must remove it each year. 

An alternate method allows the dock to move with the ice in a contained area. Marinas use this technique all the time.

DEEP or fluctuating water levels?

The PolyDock system works great on shorelines with deep or fluctuating water levels. There is never a concern about the depth of the water. The flotation allows your dock to adjust along with the water. An anchor holds the floating dock in place. 

Are you concerned about the environment?

Are you concerned about the natural environment and the look of your dock? The PolyDock systems’ low profile is the answer.

PolyDock systems set the standard for stability, reliability, and ease of ownership.

ShoreMaster floating dock systems meet or exceed the Hunt Absorption Test. Even in the unlikely event of a puncture to the outer shell, your dock will remain buoyant. 

The PolyDock system has rotationally molded outer shells. UV inhibitors infused in the body ensure durability for many seasons to come.

The unique construction gives you unlimited customization options. Install accessories anywhere around your dock perimeter.
