Property owners near the water often add a dock to their location to provide easy access to water activities. Although stationary docks are still common for certain water body types, more property owners choose floating docks for their versatility and extensive benefits. With more customization and flexibility options, owners can seamlessly change a floating dock’s layout to meet their preferences and needs.
5 Benefits of Floating Dock Systems
When you choose a floating dock for your waterfront property, you’ll enjoy the following benefits:
1. Suitable for Fluctuating Water Levels
Floating docks reign supreme for bodies of water with fluctuating water levels. Because of their exceptional floating ability, floating docks are always the same height as your boat or watercraft. You’ll always have easy access regardless of how high water levels rise or drop.
2. Easy Installation and Removal
Floating docks can come fully assembled or in sections requiring minimal installation time, allowing you to save money and reduce lead times over a stationary dock purchase. If you decide to change your floating dock layout later, many modular designs are easily expandable. Additionally, you don’t need to worry about damage to your floating dock during severe weather or in the offseason since it is easily removable and storable.
3. Accessory and Add-On Options
Selecting the right accessories and add-ons allows you to equip your floating dock to your unique specifications and preferences. Property owners can add accessories to boost their dock’s appearance, improve performance and increase accessibility, enabling them to do more of what they love on the water. Options include ladders, bumpers, railings, anchors and more.
4. ADA Compliance
Dealers like EZ Docks are committed to providing an enjoyable waterfront experience to everyone. From railings compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to safety ramps and curbing, many floating docks are configurable to the United States Access Board‘s guidelines for ensuring universal accessibility.
5. Ability to Accommodate Any Watercraft
Because floating docks are customizable, they provide many uses and can harbor various watercraft types. Boat docks provide easy access and save the hassle of towing and using a trailer. Kayak and Jet Ski floating docks are an efficient way to launch and dock your watercraft safely and conveniently.
