dock system that works where others can't --
deep water and frequently changing water levels
and 6' Wide Docks Configured for Residential or Commercial Applications
Hewitt Floating Docks are ideally suited for complex layouts and commercial
as well as residential use on deep bottom lakes, reservoirs and rivers.
Floats automatically adjusts to high and low water conditions –
you’ll never be left high and dry or find your dock submerged. 6'
foot wide models provide extra space for equipment and allow people to
pass easily in heavy use areas.
Sky's the Limit
As the photographs in the gallery illustrate, Hewitt Floating Dock components
can be used to construct a dock of almost any size and shape. For even
more possibilites, consider the Custom
Quality Flotation Tanks
Hewitt Floating Docks are supported by float tanks so reliable they meet
U.S. Military specifications. The tanks are comprised of EPS foam encased
in a seamless heavy-duty polyethylene shell. Tanks are resistant to cracking
and corrosion and are suitable for year-round use. They can even be left
out during the winter. Float tanks are available in a wide range of sizes
with different load carrying capacities.
tanks have molded-in mounting flanges for easy attachment to the bottom
dock frame. Floats may also be installed within the frame for a lower
profile on the water.
Floating Docks feature the same advantages found in all Hewitt dock
systems -- easy assembly, low maintenance and expandability. Whether you
choose aluminum for low-weight or galvanized steel for maximum strength,
Hewitt Floating Docks are engineered and constructed to provide unexcelled
performance and durability.
The Floating Dock incorporates engineering principles proven in bridge
and crane construction. The open framework design provides maximum
strength with minimum weight and creates less wave resistance for
superior stability. Heavy-duty structural support tubes are used at
both the top and bottom of the side frames. The entire frame is reinforced
with structural channel bracing and extra strong angle cross bars.
Corners are strengthened with extra large gussets.
Specially designed full-width hinges are recommended for connecting
all sections. Hinge connections prevent undue stress on the structure
by allowing the dock to flex in rough water conditions or in locations
where water levels change rapidly.
