Floating Docks

  • admin 

TimberStrong is the name of the unique hidden fastener system and panel decking we developed specifically for the construction of floating aluminum docks and similar products with composite deck boards.

TimberStrong fasteners are used to fasten deck boards together into a single panel. Installing panels instead of single boards results in increased productivity on the job site, which means lower labor costs. This is the number one reason to use TimberStrong Panels! Specifically, using TimberStrong fasteners and boards saves time and labor, and reduces the need for rental equipment, reducing costs as well as negative impact on the environment.

Material that is panelized using the TimberStrong fastening system is easily attached to aluminum frames and not the deck surface. Therefore, the fasteners eliminate nail pops and the possibility of catching bare feet on exposed screws.

The Texas Rowing Center in Austin, Texas (pictured above), is a rowing, kayaking, and stand-up paddleboard (SUP) concession located in downtown Austin on the north shore of the Lady Bird Lake hike and bike trail, directly across from Austin High School.

The main dock is 50’ x 300’ (15,000 square feet). There are also two 3,000-square-foot buildings located directly on the dock. The building houses the racing sculls and equipment.

Aluminum floating docks, boardwalks, launches, and other products, allow for the movement of waters and tides while maintaining their strength and integrity.
