Don't mess with a flimsy gangway kit. If you want a gangway you can depend on for years our E-channel framed aluminum gangway is the right ramp for your project. Interact with our Dura-Ramp I below to find out what makes a GatorDock gangway the most trusted in the industry. Then visit our gangway page to see design options and past projects.
The most important part of building a structure is the foundation. Our gangway designs begin with our E-channel extrusions that run the length of the structure creating a fully welded box for superior strength and rigidity.
In the marine industry, many companies 'spot weld' metal ramps. Gator does not cut corners in our build process. The fully welded frame provides added strength and durability to Gator's gangway designs.
By incorporating a structural truss framework into the handrail of the DRI, this fully welded gangway can span great lengths. Customize the design of this heavy-duty gangway with the railing additions and decking of your choice.
Our aluminum decking is textured in two planes for maximum slip resistance. It is a workhorse favorite offering high performance without the maintenance in salty marine environments. The aluminum decking is incorporated into our gangway frames for added structural integrity.
Many of our standard aluminum designs incorporate ADA compliant features such as hand rail, mid rail, toe rail and slope restrictions. If additional accessibility standards need to be met, Gator can customize your structure.
Unless the gangway is connected via a piano hinge to the dock, your Gator gangways feature a transition plate. Smooth the transition from your gangway to dock with a dock recess creates a less steep incline of the transition plate.
