Topper Industries has been designing, engineering and manufacturing floating launch ramp docks for more than forty (40) years.
In the past, most boarding floats were designed with pressure treated timber frames and timber deck.
Over the past decade, there has been a move away from wood toward aluminum and steel frame boarding floats with composite, concrete or grated fiberglass deck and six sided polyethylene encased tub floats.
All launch ramp sites exhibit different environmental characteristics for wave, wind, current, fetch, water elevations, anchoring, etc. All conditions, along with budget, must be considered when designing a launch ramp dock.
