Dock Preparation and Repair

UHMW for Docks

UHMW proves excellent for docks and marine surface applications, particularly due to its exceptional impact resistance, making it ideal for withstanding hurricanes and other adverse weather conditions. Docks necessitate durable materials given their continual exposure to water and frequent boat docking, emphasizing the importance of impact resistance.

Benefits of UHMW

  • High durability
  • Excellent impact resistance
  • Long product life
  • Corrosion resistant
  • Weather resistant

Inteplast Docks

Inteplast offers exceptional hurricane protection with its innovative dock features. With the ability to span 24”, it provides robust coverage, enhanced by its reversible design featuring Teak and Cedar woodgrain finishes. Its outstanding performance, durability, and lighter weight compared to composites make it a superior choice. Additionally, its resistance to moisture and superior color retention render it ideal for rainy, coastal areas, and regions with intense sun exposure, ensuring reliable protection against hurricanes and adverse weather conditions.

Surge Protectors

Surge protectors play a crucial role in fortifying docks against storm surges. These devices, consisting of round collars made of durable HDPE, are bolted securely atop HDPE pipe sleeves. They prevent floating docks from dislodging during severe storms by anchoring them firmly to wood piles. By maintaining stability and structural integrity, surge protectors minimize the risk of damage, ensuring the safety of your docks in hurricane season.

Window Protection

Polycarbonate Panels

Hurricane panels, typically made from polycarbonate, offer crucial protection for buildings, businesses, and residences in these areas, shielding against damage and enhancing safety. Polycarbonate is renowned for its exceptional toughness and impact resistance, and has become a preferred material for these panels due to its ability to withstand high-speed debris without shattering like traditional glass. Corrugated polycarbonate sheets, popular for their multiple layers of protection and ease of installation, are commonly used for manufacturing hurricane panels.

Before the rise of polycarbonate, materials like wood were employed for window and door coverings during storms, but lacked the durability and clarity of polycarbonate. Recognized by building codes in Florida, polycarbonate panels are rigorously tested for impact resistance, instilling confidence in their protective capabilities.
