Residential Docks

Kropf Marine offers premium residential dock systems for discerning clients. The structure and workmanship is outstanding, and complements the finest cottage property on any waterway.

With many satisfied clients in the Muskokas and on Georgian Bay, we are confident that a floating dock system by Kropf Marine will exceed your expectations.

Residential docks by Kropf Marine feature the same robust construction design used for our heavy duty commercial dock systems. Marine environments are very dynamic, and floating dock systems are subjected to constant movement. The structural integrity of a well-engineered steel dock structure is not compromised over time by these forces, unlike a wood-framed or aluminum-framed dock system. In many locations the dock can be left in the water year around, even in ice conditions.

Floating docks by Kropf provide superior stability, strength, performance, and longevity. In fact, these docks are so stable that many visitors do not realize they are on a floating dock at all.

A variety of options and accessories designed to enhance your waterfront experience are available. Please see the Accessories page for more details.

In addition to our steel tube floating dock systems, Kropf Industrial is also a dealer for Highland Floats, offering a line of premium HDPE pipe floats. Click here for more information on this alternate flotation option.

Kropf Marine can also supply you with floating platforms that allow for the construction of boat ports or boat houses. These stable platforms are an excellent and cost-effective alternative where fixed platforms are not practical because of changing water levels or regulatory challenges. We can work with your preferred building contractor to design, fabricate, and install the floatation unit complete with the appropriate framing to allow for the construction of your structure.

Kropf Marine is equipped to provide complete package dock systems, from the CAD design process, though fabrication, coatings, and decking, to delivery, launch, installation, and anchoring. We offer custom layouts and configurations to meet your specific requirements - - - there are no standard sizes!

From large commercial applications, to small residential systems, Kropf offers proven solutions! Please contact us for more information.

Construction

Steel tube docks by Kropf Marine are built to last, with durable 24" spiral welded steel float tubes, and a rugged welded steel substructure. This sturdy sub-frame supports the wood stringers and fascia boards; premium 2" x 6" deck boards are screw mounted to the stringers. Premium western red cedar, Moisture Shield, or ThruFlow, are also available as decking options.

All steel surfaces are sandblasted and spray coated with our advanced Devoe "Bar Rust" application process for longevity. Coatings are applied indoors in an environmentally controlled paint booth to ensure coating quality.

10” cast aluminum cleats are mounted with through-bolts to the stringers for securing vessels to the docks. An extruded aluminum track that accommodates adjustable cleats is available as an option. Painted or premium stainless steel bollards are also available.

  • Dock pedestals
  • Dock boxes
  • Welded aluminum swim ladders
