Design and Construction
The parts you don’t see
make the difference in long-term reliability
Overall safety and enjoyment of your dock is the focus of Hewitt Manufacturing. The docks we build are low maintenance and designed to make installation and removal as easy as possible. Both our aluminum and steel frame docks make extensive use of engineered structural components to reduce weight without sacrificing strength. Aluminum models use 1/8” plate aluminum along with center supports and crossbars for added strength. Robotic welders ensure consistent, high-quality welds throughout the supporting structure.
Add-on sections and accessories to aid installation and protect your dock are made with the same commitment to quality. The strength of our basic components provides a solid foundation for expansion and gives you the flexibility to create almost any dock layout you can imagine.
Every connection point is secured with the proper type of hardware. A combination of stainless steel, Durlak coated hardware and brass is used to achieve the required strength and/or corrosion resistance.
Hewitt docks and accessories equipped with wheels use corrosion resistant polyethylene tires that feature seamless construction and relief venting.
Floating docks and docks incorporating floats for extra load carrying capacity incorporate heavy-duty EPS foam tanks. The Roto-molded process used to make these floats prevents water absorption by forming a thick-walled seamless casing around the foam. The casing also integrates watertight molding mounts and heavy-duty mounting flanges for maximum reliability.
