Floating Dock Installation

We’ve chosen to install Wave Armor docks as they provide the most advanced generation of modular floating dock systems AND a 10 YEAR manufacturer’s warranty. As an added bonus, all floating dock systems are 100% foam-filled with closed-cell foam.

  • Bulkhead – A raised structure (usually made of vinyl, wood, or concrete) built to protect the shore from erosion.

  • Pile – A long slender column (usually made of wood, steel, or composite) driven into the ground to support a vertical load.

  • Whaler – Horizontal supports that are usually 4”x 6”, 4”x 8”, or 6”x 6”.

  • Deadman – An anchor pile usually 6” to 8” in diameter and 8’ to 10’ in length. Or a helical earth anchor 6”, 8”, or 10” based on the engineer’s specifications.

  • Tie Rod – A ¾” galvanized rod used as a connecting member from the piling to the deadman. 

  • Cap – Usually wood or composite decking.
