Why We Love Anodized Aluminum Boat Docks

Posted by Alumi-Span Docks on 5/31/2022
Have you been researching the right material for your boat dock?

Have you been considering aluminum boat dock sections but are still confused about your options?

As you might guess by looking at our company name, we love anodized aluminum! We choose this material for our dock sections because of its permanent layer of protective material that rivals any paint or powder-coated material.

Anodized aluminum sections are better than other materials because:

  1. They’re natural – Aluminum oxide is a naturally-occurring protective layer on the outside of aluminum. The process of anodizing thickens the layers and is sealed for unmatched protection.
  2. They keep cool – Anodized aluminum, contrary to popular belief, is one of the coolest dock materials to the touch. No more burning your feet on the dock on a sunny day!
  3. They’re scratch-resistant – Since the anodizing process produces a hard, protective layer on aluminum, you don’t need to worry about scratches, chips, or fading. Many paints or powder coatings would need upkeep to keep them looking new, but anodized aluminum is made to last a lifetime. Anodized aluminum dock sections are also the easiest to clean!
  4. They’re eco-friendly – Because you’re avoiding using paint or power coatings, the finish is naturally occurring and is not harmful to people or the environment.

Still need more convincing?

Anodized aluminum dock sections are incredibly high value when you compare them to other dock materials that don’t last as long and aren’t as durable.

Docks were made to create more time on the water, not less! If you want a durable dock you don’t have to worry about, an aluminum dock might be right for you.

Anodized Aluminum Dock Sections: Nothing’s Lighter, Nothing’s Cooler, Nothing’s Stronger

Alumi-Span originated the all-aluminum boat dock in 1956. Don't be fooled by cheaper "non-anodized" units! Unlike some competitive units, our docks are made with a strong alloy and our acid-etched anodizing process will not turn black over time. Our dock boards interlock together and then are fastened with stainless fasteners. Tough adhesive is added to eliminate squeaks and rattles.

We manufacture our products using quality methods and materials, and that’s why many Alumi-Span aluminum boat docks are still in use after more than 50 years!

Whether it's a complete boat dock system or the individual components, we have what you need to get back out on the water with peace of mind. Call us today at 855-523-2444 or contact us to purchase your new aluminum boat dock.
