Looking to build a new dock this summer?
Plasti-Fab’s DuroFloat that will help you do just that!
DuroFloat is a billet of EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) encapsulated in an eco-friendly marine barrier. The barrier resists punctures, UV deterioration, weather, fuel spills and provides protection from mammals and aquatic life.
DuroFloat has some features that I like better than some of the other billets on the market. It comes in a great size of 96x20x10 which is bigger than most on the market. It has a lift (buoyancy force) of 610lbs. There is no installation kits (hardware) required to install it. DuroFloat doesn’t require any ballasting or stringers to be secure and effective. Ballasting is when you add water to the float to increase stability, and a stringer adds stiffness and may also be used when attaching or mounting other internal structures. DuroFloat eliminates the need for those with its built in strength and stability.
There are many associations across Canada that now requires your flotation device to be encapsulated when putting it into rivers and lakes. DuroFloat offers you an effective solution to ensure you have a safe dock that does not have a negative effect on the environment.
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to enjoy the summer with your new floating dock, raft or boathouse.
