GALVANIZED STEEL FRAMES

steel frames

Our heavy duty galvanized steel truss frames are constructed so that they can be bolted together, side to side or end to end, to form the desired configuration needed for your dock design. These frames work well in a variety of applications and we are happy to provide you with a CAD layout designed to meet your specific needs. In any design, proper frame layout is important due to a wide variety of materials now available for decking. We must consider dock usage and loading, and provide the proper flotation requirements.

The basic frame design is built strong enough to support concrete decking and we also offer 16" on center frames to support the new composite deck materials.  Typical hot-dip galvanized 12" box truss steel frames are welded trusses utilizing all angle iron construction. Our frames are mig welded in a frame jig to ensure the precise tolerances are kept. Minimum angle size at the bolted connections are 3" x 3" x 1/4", with main rails not less than 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" x 3/16". Truss diagonals and cross bracing are not less than 1" x 1" x 1/8" angle. All frames are hot-dip galvanized after fabrication.

Handrail Bridges

We offer bridges to provide safe dependable access to our docks. The bridges are fabricated in 4' and 6' widths. Bridges are designed to hinge on the dock end; the shore end has skid pipes and can be fitted with an axle and wheel assembly as required.

UnderSlung Bridges

We offer bridges to provide safe dependable access to our docks. The bridges are constructed of all angle iron that is hot-dip galvanized after fabrication. Optional galvanized handrail assemblies can be bolted onto the bridges. Bridges are designed to hinge on the dock end, and the shore end has skid pipes and can be fitted with an axle and wheel assembly as required.

Flat Bridges

Our flat bridges are hot-dip galvanized after fabrication and come in lengths from 6' to 16'. Optional galvanized handrail assemblies can be bolted onto the bridges. Bridges are designed to hinge on the dock end, and the shore end has skid pipes, roller assembles, wheel assemblies, or can also be hinged.

I-Beam Bridge Floater

I-Beam Floaters are for sites where two bridges are required for access to the lake. These are available for 4' and 6' wide bridges.

Standard Bridge Floater

A bridge floater can be added to any hand railed bridge where additional flotation might be needed.

TreadPlate Assembly

A tread plate assembly can be added to the shore end of any bridge for safer and easier access to the dock.

Bridge Accessories

We have bridge components to customize bridges to suit individual site requirements. Bridge floaters and bolt-on tread plate assemblies are available for use with our bridges.

Bolt-On HandRailing

Bolt-on handrails measure 42" above decking. Freight savings is achieved by bolting hand railing to bridge after delivery.

Bridge to Dock Hinge Assembly

Bridges can attach to the dock with a 3/4" diameter hinge pin through 1/4" angle iron.

Bolted Connection

Steel frames bolt together with 5/8" diameter hardware bolting through 1/4" angle iron.

Standard Wheel Assembly

The standard wheel assembly consists of an 8" diameter wheel with a 3/4" axle. All-terrain wheel assemblies are available.

Standard Bridge End

Our standard bridge is set up with the shore end having skid pipes and a 7/8" diameter hole for a 3/4" axle.

5th Wheel Connection

5th wheel connections are available in 4' and 6' widths.
