All of our designs start with the same rigid E-Channel frame. The future use of the structure, or application, determines what we do to it next. Do you need a low-freeboard kayak launch? Then we will design and build our Full Float floatation system and incorporate one of our kayak cradles into the top dock design. Do you need a boat ramp? The E-frame channel is fitted with our Pontoon Float system and decked with slip-resistant aluminum decking. Choose your application below to start the design process of your dock, gangway or marina system.
We build beautiful docks. Our dock systems are used in commercial environments and are much more heavy duty than residential docks. Some of our dock systems, including our theme park marina systems, serve millions of people a year. We offer three floatation options for floating docks and several fixed dock support options.
Whether you are looking for a fixed marina, floating marina or a combination of the two, Gator's team of expert design engineers and fabricators can build a durable, low maintenance marina system designed specifically for your environment. Designer options, such as decking, lighting and utilities can be incorporated into your marina plans.
Gator builds piers that are a favorite for fishermen of all sizes and abilities. Our signature fishing rail is one of our clients' favorite design options. For heavy duty pier structures, ask about Gator's Lake Hartwell Pier project for inspiration. The major benefit of building your pier with an aluminum frame is it requires half the support pilings that a wood pier would need.
Our gangways are a favorite in the marine industry. Even other dock builders ask us to build Gator gangways for them. Our E-Channel frames provide unmatched stability. Additionally, our dedication to fully welding connections gives our clients the longest lasting, quality gangways for their projects.
Gator has been fabricating kayak launch docks for decades. We offer three standard designs to accommodate all types of specialty watercraft. Each of these standard designs can be customized with our design options to create the ideal non-motorized boat launch.
The entire Eastern Coast of the United States is dotted with Gator Pontoon Float Boat Ramps. Coastal boat launches can take a beating from waves, wind and even the boats being launched. Our rigid aluminum frames and durable aluminum cased floats keep maintenance requirements at a minimum even in the harsh salt-water environment. Gator has led the way in creating durable design features, such as the Naraganset hinge and knee brace, that make our boat ramp docks a favorite for state and municipality engineers.
