Dock On A Rock’s brackets have a new and improved 3rd Generation design. In pairs or multiples, our brackets will create a solid base for your sundeck, dock, stairs, or walkway. Our brackets are used exclusively to create a safe shore base, as a transition to your floating dock systems.
Our patented brackets are manufactured by our Mennonite friends, in central Ontario, Canada, using state of the art manufacturing processes. Formed laser cut hot dipped galvanized A36 steel plate form the base, and galvanized HSS steel tube is used in the horizontal arm and adjustment barrels. All our bracket kits include structural grade SAE 4140 (A193 B7) galvanized mounting hardware, and acrylic chemical anchor.
Cantilevered above the water our brackets are completely adjustable, and permanently mounted to any inclined solid rock surface, from 25 to 90 degrees on our Original 36" unit, and 40 to 90 degrees on our Long Arm 72"unit. Being cantilevered above the water all environmental concerns have been eliminated. (As per Ontario's MNR Parry Sound office 2009, & Kenora office 2010)
Dock On A Rock recommends an 8 foot centre-to-centre span when using 2x8 dimensional lumber, with a cantilever of 24" beyond the bracket. These dimensions are standard building code in most regions, and will result in a platform of approximately 5'x8' on our 36" Original Bracket and 7'x8' on our 72” Long Arm Bracket. If you are building in a "non organized" area, we recommend a cantilever not to exceed 48", which would result in a dock width of approx. 7-8 ft. on the Original 36" bracket, and 9-10 ft. on the Long Arm 72" bracket. Our Original 36" bracket is secured to the rock by 6-12" long, 5/8"dia. A193 B7 structural studs, drilled 6" deep into the rock face, held in place with A7 acrylic chemical anchors, and 2H structural nuts. The Long Arm 72" bracket is secured by 6-14" long, 5/8”dia. A193 B7 structural studs, drilled 8" deep into the rock face.
Dock On A Rock will gladly review any digital photo's you have of your shoreline, to confirm shoreline compatibility, or answer any questions you may have.
