Modern Anodized Aluminum Dock Sections

There is a lot more than meets the eye when you start comparing anodized aluminum dock sections. Alumi-Span has very strict quality standards. The aluminum alloy, extrusion design, fasteners, and even the quality of anodizing used in the sections play a part. If a manufacturer goes cheap on any of the things listed above, it can make for a very weak, noisy, or even a hot dock section. Like all things for sale, there are low-end and high-end dock sections. You need to take more into consideration than just the selling price when buying a dock.

Why Aluminum Dock Sections are the Best Choice

Anodized aluminum dock sections are one of the best options for a dock system. The combination of light weight, high strength, cool to walk on, and easy stack-ability make this dock design. Alumi-Span pioneered this type of docking system in the early 60’s.  After developing a leg system to use in the late 50’s on a type of wood decking, eventually the aluminum dock section was born and even received Alcoa’s “Aluminum Product of the Year” Award. Original designs used a type of aluminum scaffolding plank.  Ultimately the design was further improved by using an “F” side stringer.  The now standard 4-inch-tall “F” channel side rail can be found on many different dock systems today.  It is still one of the more dominate designs in the industry.
