Why should I buy EZ Dock instead of a traditional floating dock?
EZ dock is a very rugged and durable product that provides excellent long term value compared to traditional docks because:
Durable & Low Maintenance - EZ Dock sections are made out of Linear Low Density Polyethylene which provides excellent durability and low maintenance versus traditional floating docks. It is basically maintenance free so you never have to worry about boards splitting, splinters, nails, screws, staining, etc.
Stability - EZ Dock’s patented design has a series of open pylons on the bottom that that essentially “suction” the dock to the water providing the most stable plastic floating dock on the market. Traditional floating docks have floatation under approximately 50-60% of the walking surface thus it gives a barrel and roll effect every time a wave or wake passes under a float.
Modular – EZ Dock has various size dock sections that have uniformly spaced coupler pockets every ~20” around the perimeter. The sections can easily assembled into various configurations using dog-boned shaped recycled rubber couplers. The modularity allows EZ Dock to be easily reconfigured or added on to in the future...
Coupler System – The recycled rubber couplers used to connect the EZ Dock Sections have 4000 lbs. shear strength and provide a stable yet flexible connection between the sections. When strong wave action is present, the couplers absorb the shock rather than the dock sections. If the wave action becomes too severe the couplers are designed to break before the plastic dock section so that the repair is replacing a coupler(s) rather than large dock sections. Traditional floating docks are assembled with floatation attached to a rigid frame and decking on top. The sections are typically assembled with bolts, nuts, screws, nails, etc. This design doesn’t allow for flexibility or shock absorption and can be severely damaged when exposed to strong wave action.
