Each of Gator's sturdy aluminum piers starts with our fully welded E-channel frame. Incorporate the decking of your choice along with railing or dock accessories to tailor the pier design to your application. Saltwater and sea air can quickly compromise wood and concrete docks and piers. Marine grade aluminum is specifically chosen for our piers as it offers high performance and remains rust free even in ocean environments. Gator's strong aluminum frames allow 20 feet between piling supports cutting the cost of piles and pile installation.
Whether your project is in need of a waterfront boardwalk or a place to fish from, Gator piers can span longer distances and require less maintenance than wooden piers. Design a meandering boardwalk for trails with corrosion resistant aluminum decking or a traditional wood deck. If fishing is the purpose of your new pier, our famous fishing rail is a beautiful, practical design for fishers of all sizes and abilities.
Fixed docks and piers are a perfect place to boat from in areas with little water fluctuation. Our boat piers start with a marine grade aluminum frame and can be designed with any of the decking options or dock accessories shown below. GatorDock's aluminum header kits attach the pier frame to your chosen piling. By building a GatorDock boat pier, you can cut the number of pilings needed by half!
Looking for the perfect place to fish from? Clients love GatorDock's aluminum piers with fishing rail. An angled rest rail and bait shelf are incorporated into the pier rail at alternating heights to allow children and those with ADA needs the perfect place to fish from.
If you want your boardwalk to have a wooden look, chose an aluminum walkway with pine decking and fenders. The aluminum frame will span greater distances and require vastly less maintenance than a typical wooden system. To reduce maintenance requirements even further, choose Gator's corrosion resistant aluminum decking.
Intercostal waterways and lakefronts often prefer a fixed pier to a floating dock. Gator has built thousands of piers over our long history. Contact Gator to learn how to encompass seating, roof structures, boat lifts, or other features into your fixed pier design.
If you are searching for a floating pier, Gator has what you need. Our floating docks and piers are some of our most popular products and can be found on our dock page.

Not all aluminum is the same. The marine industry specifies the 6000 series aluminum for marine use. Specifically, Gator chooses to use aluminum alloy 6061 due to its inherent strength and corrosion resistance.
