The railing is an integral part of the structure, providing compression and
resistance to flex in the deck. This integrated, monocoque design creates
a tremendous weight-to-strength ratio.
PermaDock Gangways are available in a wide variety of sizes. Widths
can be 3, 4, 6, or 8 ft. wide, and lengths of 24 ft. and under are normal for
residential use. We can also manufacture 80 ft. ADA gangways that
weigh under 3,000 lbs.
Our gangway weighs 400 lbs vs. 1200 for wood.
This lowers the loading on the dock itself. The
handrail is painted, and will remain warm to the
touch as time goes on. Paint bonds extremely
well, so paint chips will probably never happen.
The rail pieces are permanently bonded together
with epoxy rather than screws that will work loose.
This will eliminate creaks and wobbly railings.
