Our Docks

The Quick Dock was created by the son of a local dock manufacturer. Working in the dock industry for several years a void in the market was noticed. That void was a compete dock system that included all accessories with no extra's or hidden fees. This had to be a fully welded frame hand crafted with high quality material that could stand the test of time. The Quick Dock was designed to offer a dock that could be easily installed in any configuration allowing for quick easy installation combined with extreme strength & durability.

           Tower Docks

    Tower Docks are by far the easiest to install and remove. Designed to work like a drawbridge, they slip effortlessly into the water each spring, and stay safely above the ice in the winter.

  • Best in water depths up to 6’.
  • ​The lakebed should be reasonably firm. For mucky lake beds concrete pads can be put down for support.
  • ​Not suitable for areas where the ice piles up onto the shore in the winter. Although the dock is hoisted for the winter the base may be subjected to ice damage.
  • ​Cannot be adjusted to water level changes
  • ​Configurations must be symmetrical to allow for safe lifting
  • Systems available up to 50’ long​
  • ​Shoreline should be solid bed rock, poured concrete or existing shore deck. As well, there must be a concrete or suitable winch anchoring point a minimum of 13ft feet back from the lift tower, on an elevation of no more 11ft.
  • ​Docks are suitable for high wave action.
  • ​​Life expectancy of frame is 30+ years.

        Floating Docks
