Floating docks are constructed with series 6005A T6 marine-grade aluminium alloy. They are supported by polyethylene rotomoulded floats, filled with high-density polystyrene foam. Rotational moulding and expanded polystyrene foam guarantee the perfect flotation and unsinkability of the floats.
The choice to use marine-grade aluminium frame and cleats for our dock systems is a testament to our commitment to quality and to environmental protection. Aluminium offers considerable benefits.
Lightness: Aluminium has a very high strength/weight ratio. At equal strength, an aluminium structure weighs 50% of the weight of a steel structure. This is a considerable advantage when handling the floating or fixed docks, as well as for transport costs.
Resistance and rigidity: Aluminium is used in structures built to last. Taipei 101 is one of the world’s tallest skyscrapers located in Taipei. With its aluminium façade, it was built to withstand winds of more than 200 km/h and a 5.0 earthquake measured by the Richter scale.
Sustainability: Aluminium naturally generates an oxide layer that protects it from corrosion. With a lifespan of more than fifty years, the facilities remain in perfect condition and do not require maintenance.
Design and manufacturing reliability: Aluminium meets a set of international design and implementation standards.
Recyclability: Aluminium is a material that is always 100% recyclable.
