EZ Dock Construction Specs and Details

Construction specs include individual flotation chambers and extra-heavy wall thickness create tremendous structural integrity. We have elimated the need for foam fillings and the environmental concerns related to them are completely eliminated.

Special connection couplers allow sections to move independently under high-stress conditions, yet provide unified stability. Made with recycled material, the couplers are compounded to prevent fatigue problems. The composite coupler bolt and nut eliminate rusting in all water conditions.

What makes EZ Dock the most stable floating dock system on the market?

EZ Dock’s exclusive floating boat dock sections

  • Have a patented hollow-chamber that creates pressure and suction.
  • Cool to the touch even on the hottest of summer days, attractively beige colored
  • Friendly to the environment, since there is no foam.
  • Rotomolded from low-linear density polyethylene, and
  • The light beige color allows light penetration, but is not hurt by UV rays.
  • Patented coupler connectors are used to attach the dock sections.
  • The special coupler design allows flexibility that works with the waves—not against them.
  • Patented design features work together to create a more stable dock, pontoon, or jetty.
  • Easily configured to fit your specific docking needs

Designed for Easy Installation

Sections and accessories have a minimum of components and require just a few hand tools to install.

Rugged, Durable Construction

Extra-thick polyethylene sections provide superior resistance to impacts and temperature extremes. Patented connection method allows sections to move independently under extreme stress conditions and eliminates fatigue problems common to other floating designs.

Friendly to people, boats and the environment

Special texture, grid pattern and drain channels prevent standing water and provide a non-slip walking surface. Beige color absorbs less heat to stay cool to the touch. No sharp edges to injure people or damage boats. Advanced engineering eliminates the need to use questionable materials like treated lumber and foams. No formaldehyde to leach into water, no foam to escape!

Low maintenance

No rotting lumber to replace, No floatation drums to sink. Linear Low Density Polyethylene with UV stabilizers is specifically formulated for outdoor use. Not harmed by gas or oil, won’t deteriorate from exposure to Ultra-Violet light and resists temperature extremes. Highly buoyant sections displace only 2″ of water, so they are unaffected by most ice conditions. In many cases docks can be left in all year.

Safe and stable

Because floatation is distributed evenly throughout the entire installation, the dock tends to span the crest of waves instead of “riding” them like flotation barrels with decking will. The dock feels very stable even in heavy wind and wave conditions.

Strong, yet flexible

Special connection design allows sections to move independently under extreme stress conditions, yet provides a unitized effect. Made from 90%+ recycled material, the couplers also eliminate fatigue problems common to ordinary designs.

Safe, clean, surface

No splintered wood, rusty nails, or sharp edges to injure people or mar boats. Special texturing and grid pattern delivers a surface coefficient of friction result that exceeds the ADA (American Disabilities Act) requirement, wet or dry. Drain troughs on deck prevent standing water.

Secure attachments

Heavy-duty stainless steel T-nuts are molded in pairs around section perimeters. Each T-nut provides more than 1-ton of holding power. Tie-down cleats, curbing, or other accessories are easily attached.

Whatever you call your dock, EZ Dock invites you to walk on the competition, and then walk on an EZ Dock before your make your purchase. You will feel and see the difference with your very first step!

Extra-durable, resilient material

The extra thick deck and wall delivers maximum durability and reduces distortion. Even more thickness is built into radius areas for additional strength where impacts occur.

Virgin polyethylene with UV inhibitors is specifically formulated for outdoor use. Not harmed by gas or oil, won’t rot or become brittle, & remains flexible to 130 degrees below zero. If ever damaged, sections are on-site repairable.

Color will determine the temperature of your dock!

Dark colors absorb and hold heat. Light colored objects reflect heat so they stay cooler. Not only is this important to bare feet, it protects the dock as well; an over-heated Poly-type dock can become soft, and be prone to distortion.

Versatile Modular design

The EZ Dock System is easily configured to suit most any need. Combine various size sections and accessories to create a simple swim platform or an elaborate multiple-slip marina.

Extensive choice of accessories

Customize your set-up to suit your needs perfectly. Choose from a wide variety of anchoring systems, gangway sizes, railing styles and more.
