Dock Construction Features
Our dock truss is the strongest in the business. We start with a
75" piece of 1/2" solid aluminum rod. Each rod is bent every 5 1/2" to form our 48" Truss.
Some dock manufacturers is 3/8" rod, some bend the rod every 10" and some do not have
2 Stringers per each 4' wide frame
3 Stringers per each 6' wide frame
This adds strength and stability to each of our systems and gives you a decking
surface that is mounted 16" on center. Compare with other docks that are 24" on center.
Our post pads are 8" x 14", that is 224 SQ" of support on the lakes bottom per
section. Compare with other docks that are 8" x 8"
Our dock wheels are 8" wide x 24" tall and are made from injection molded
plastic. No rubber to rot and no steel wheels to rust.
Our dock post are 2 1/2" - Schedule 40 structural galvanized steel. These are
200% stronger than aluminum post.
Our post pocket is 10" tall. Most docks are 4" to 7". Pleasure Island gives you
strength and stability where you need it most
Every dock frame has welded chain hooks. These are used to secure your dock to the
lakes bottom and for attaching your dock height adjustment kit.
