AquaMax Logo

Our floating dock kits will serve you well.  We will provide you with everything you need except for lumber and deck screws.  You will also want to secure your dock with anchors.  

Looking for the best product out there?  These floats are constructed using:

  • Commercial-grade UV-enhanced LLDPE plastic, a virtually indestructible material
  • They are rotationally molded, enhancing the material’s strength and ensuring the float is airtight
  • The deep black color comes from natural charcoal additives.  The dark color provides not only a sleek appearance but also effectively draws in solar heat to create a protective barrier in cold weather.  
  • The best news is most floats are recycled materials, contributing to the safety of our environment.  

What makes these floats stand out is their 16″ size.  A 16″ float is a standard that fits well even in most commercial setups.  But these kits also come in 20″ floats for heavy duty support.  If you wish to order a dock kit, give us a call!

Be sure to include the weight of the wood decking to your total support weight.  Customize your dock with your choice of deck materials. Go exotic or save money, perhaps you have some lumber at home waiting for a project like this!  And we are by your side every step of the way, cheering you on.

Rest easy knowing that you’re getting the best materials available, with a design that has been appreciated by many for decades of reliable use.

What are the Benefits of having a Wooden Dock, vs Plastic or Aluminum?

Nestled in the heart of a rustic setting, lies a true embodiment of classic charm and natural harmony: a floating wooden dock. This dock, crafted from the finest wood, stands as a testament to timeless craftsmanship, seamlessly blending into the serene backdrop of the pond.

Choosing wood for this floating dock brings with it numerous benefits. Beyond its natural beauty and ability to blend with the rustic surroundings, wood is an eco-friendly choice. Its sustainability and carbon-neutral status make the dock an environmentally conscious addition to any waterfront.  Moreover, wood’s durability and natural non-slip texture offer a safe, long-lasting outdoor experience that synthetic materials simply cannot match.

This floating wooden dock is more than just a structure; it’s a gateway to creating timeless memories by the water. Its design and material choice reflect a deep appreciation for nature’s beauty, offering an inviting, safe, and sustainable way to enjoy the pond’s tranquil waters and stunning views. Whether you’re looking to fish, swim, or simply relax, this dock provides the perfect setting, marrying functionality with the undeniable aesthetic appeal of classic wood.

Extreme Weather & Water Conditions Could Call for Wood & Aluminum Framing

Why would you use both aluminum and wood?   Because this river can rise 20′ in a day and change direction, there may be a need for a combination of wood, aluminum & pilings for a stronger, longer lasting deck support and still keep the beauty of a wooden dock.
