The ramp section is typically the first frame section from shore.
It does not have any leg pockets welded to the frame.
Free Standing Section
The free standing section is a standard section that comes with all dock packages.
It has a leg pocket in each corner, this section is typically setup and levelled, 10ft from shore.
During dock assembly, the “ramp section” attaches next once the “free standing section” is levelled.
Usually this section is levelled 8 – 16 in above the water.
The extension sections are added if a longer dock configuration is required.
An end section will be the farthest frame out on any dock configuration.
The leg pockets are welded on the end of the frame.
This provides 10 linear ft for a “patio section” to be joined to either side.
If two 5′ X 15′ frames (Ramp & Free standing) are used to create a 30ft dock package, a “FS EN” section will be utilized instead of an “EN” section.
The patio section or sections, can be added to either side of the “end section.”
Patio sections only come in a 5′ X 10′ frame.
