Applications of Plastic Dock Floats

Plastic dock floats can provide durable and virtually maintenance free dock flotation that can withstand the elements and harsh environments. This often results in long-range savings for recreational docks and marinas. Since they are manufactured with molded-in mounting slots for easy attachment, these floats are simple to conjoin for your specific application. Floating docks are mostly used where water fluctuations are higher. [1] This is because the plastic floating docks rise as the water tides rise and lower as the tide gets low.

DPI plastic dock floats are manufactured in the USA with a .150" nominally thick shell that’s derived from extra strong virgin polyethylene containing ultraviolet inhibitors. These inhibitors protect the floats from damage from the sun, salt and fresh water, debris, oil, gas, and marine life. The core of the float is filled with expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam. Since plastic floating docks are easy to install, long-lasting, and adaptable, they are ideal for a variety of residential and commercial applications.
