Aluminum Truss Frame Post Docks
Patriot’s line of aluminum truss frame docks are engineered to be lightweight and durable. The 12″ high trussing offers superior strength and allows for more land on the Post Bracket, minimizing sway and making for a very stable walking surface. The frames are supported on a 16′ span using 1-1/2″ schedule 40 electro-galvanized pipe. Supports use 10″x 10″ Foot Plate bases or add an axle and 24″ diameter never-go-flat wheels to easily roll the dock in and out of position with the seasons. Post and sleeve style supports have infinite adjustment and are optimal for consistent water levels. The dock height is adjusted by loosening the set screws on the Post Bracket, adjust post level then tighten set screws again. Patriot’s aluminum truss frame docks are the solution for easy lake access. They are lightweight enough to make dock installation and removal a breeze and rigid enough to moor a boat to. Patriot offers a practical line of accessories to compliment the aluminum truss frame docks, including stairs, ladders and benches!
The aluminum truss frame docks are an excellent DIY project! The aluminum truss frames are modular and bolt together to create the desired configuration. Most decking options are prefabricated into 4′ x 4′ drop in panels. Decking is offered in brown or gray aluminum, poly and western red cedar.
