EZ Dock has a variety of gangways for docks to help you reach your floating docks easier. Constructed out of aluminum or polyethylene, our gangways are designed to work together with all EZ Dock systems or your own existing dock to get you out on the water faster.

Aluminum Gangways

Rugged, Stable, and Durable. EZ Dock’s aluminum gangway systems are welded to create the ultimate gangway that will withstand the test of time. Aluminum gangways are great for commercial, residential, or municipal applications.

  • Stability: Its cool, slip-resistant surface provides maximum stability and support as you walk to your dock or launch.
  • Durability: This strong, durable system provides a capacity of 90 lbs. per linear foot, and a concentrated load of 400 pounds applied to any 12″ x 12″ area. Welded aluminum walkway structures built with custom aluminum handrails and are more rigid in all types of weather conditions.
