Boardwalk and Marinas Project

Boardwalk, Pliers, Docks and Marinas are just another form of decking platform. However, they are intended for a more robust heavy-duty commercial function for general public. The boardwalk as we know it, could be as wide as 30ft with storefront on one side and walkway on the others.

The Boardwalk plank is designed to be face screwed directly to the joist. The planks are design heavy so that in an unexpected heavy storm, should the planks be hit loose from their joist, they would sink and remain near the boardwalk. Once the storm is over, diver could pick up the sunken pieces and reinstall the planks back in their place. Some boardwalk, pliers and docks are also intended for wheeled vehicles to travel on. With this in mind, we created the Boardwalk Decking Planks to be able to withstand the weight of maintenance vehicles. Span 12” o.c for vehicle intended pliers and span max. 36” for general walking traffic dock.
