WHAT WE USE

We use only the best materials available

 

HARDWARE   We use only galvanized hardware - 10" cleats and 1/2 " bolts.

WOOD POLES - 12" diameter poles, 25 to 35 feet in length

WHALERS - These are the horizontal timbers that you see from the water side. Whalers are special marine lumber treated to 2 1/2 lbs. of CCA retention per cubic foot of lumber. We DO NOT use 1 1/2 lbs. lumber. The top whaler is through bolted to the pole with a large timber bolt which passes through the pole and the whaler.

C-LOCK SHEATHING  is a vinyl product that is co-extruded vinyl and a vinyl laminate. It is impervious to worms and UV damage. the interlocking C-lock cannot separate and will not leak like a wood tongue and groove installation.  The strength comes from the profile rather than the thickness of the material.

PLASTIC COMPOSITE such as Trex or Timber Tech can be used on decks, ramps, floats and boardwalks in place of wood. It is non splintering and longer lasting than wood, is impervious to UV damage, and requires little or no maintenence.

TIE-BACK ANCHORS or HELICLE SCREW ANCHORS are carefully engineered bearing devices that are installed when it is impractical to use other methods. Constructed of high tensile metals, they are more expensive than conventional methods, but these anchors work where other solutions can't, such as under pools or structures built close to the bulkhead.
