Truss systems can support the same vertical loads as plane systems, but with less material. The aluminum truss system is composed of a tube frame with a reinforcing rod welded in repeating "V" shapes along the outer walls. These docking systems feature polyethylene floats and are available with either aluminum, vinyl or wood decks.
- No rust or corrosion, so they'll last longer
and maintain their attractive appearance.
- Lighter than steel, so they're easier to
remove and install where docks are seasonal.
- Aluminum frames flex, providing greater
elasticity than steel.
- No secondary treatment needed, making them
more attractive than galvanized frames.
