Owning property on the water comes with many perks: breathtaking views, direct access to the water, and a place for friends and family to gather. Your dock is a vital component of your waterfront property and dock steps play a crucial role in ensuring easy access to your dock. Dock steps may seem like a minor detail, but they are a vital component of any waterfront property. They are the start of getting on the boat, going swimming, or any other water activity. Without them, you might find yourself clambering down steep and unstable terrain, risking accidents and damage to your property. To enhance both safety and convenience, it is essential to choose the right type of dock steps.
TRADITIONAL DOCK STEPS VS ARTICULATING DOCK STEPS
Traditional fixed dock steps are what their name suggests, stationary, immovable steps. While these can be reliable and functional, they have limitations.
Articulating dock steps, on the other hand, are designed to adapt to your property or changing water levels. They consist of multiple sections that pivot or articulate, allowing them to extend or retract as needed.
BENEFITS OF ARTICULATING DOCK STEPS
- Ability to Change:
Articulating dock steps can accommodate the rise and fall of water levels, ensuring easy access regardless of conditions. This feature is particularly beneficial for properties with changing water levels.
