CanadaDocks standing docks ALWAYS need to be removed from the water before winter. Ice will damage the legs and hardware of the standing sections. In SOME cases, CanadaDocks floating systems can be left in the water over the winter. This depends on ice movement on your body of water. If there is minimal ice shifting, your dock will be ok in the ice over the winter, just remove the ramp, loosen the chains on the anchors and tie it off to shore. If there a lot of ice shift, you will have to remove it.

YES. All CanadaDocks systems require anchoring. Please refer to our instructions to learn how to anchor your CanadaDocks system.

Since 2006, CanadaDocks Inc. has been a leader in creating innovative products, with the only formed aluminum, bolt-together Dock Kit on the market. Our engineers are prototype specialists who have used automotive manufacturing techniques to design a system that boasts maximum strength and durability. By creating a truss out of a single sheet of marine grade aluminum, we can use less material, resulting in a dock section that is light, strong, and eco-friendly.

CanadaDocks™ limited lifetime warranty covers defective parts on the CanadaDocks™ aluminum frames only (trusses, joists, square aluminum legs and corner braces). (Click Here For More Info)

Whether or not you should install a floating or standing on your waterfront depends on the body of water. For larger lakes, a standing dock will stand up best to rough conditions. Our standing docks have legs that adjust between   1′ – 2′, 2′ – 4′ and 4′ – 8′. If you are on a larger lake where your water depth surpasses 8′ in depth a “hybrid” dock system might be the solution for you. A “hybrid” system is a dock configuration that combines standing and floating section. Floating docks are ideal for locations on smaller lakes, with mucky bottoms and are too deep for dock legs.

YES. We do sell our Dock Kits without decking if requested! You can source your own types of wood and simply secure them to our Aluminum Trusses and Joists using hardware of your choice.  

Thruflow decking offers a limited lifetime warranty.
