Types of Reliable Dock Ladders for Safety on Your Marina

Having a sturdy and reliable ladder for your boat dock is essential for easy access to the water and for enhancing the functionality of your lakeside home or waterway marina. A wide range of durable marine ladders are constructed with high-quality materials to withstand both saltwater and freshwater applications. Whether you need a stationary, retractable, or swing ladder, it’s crucial to have the perfect step accessory to meet your specific needs. 

Why Choose Superior Construction?

Dock ladders at Dock Boxes Unlimited are built with 6063 T5 marine-grade aluminum, ensuring superior durability and strength. The 1 1/4″ and 1 1/2″ pipe sizes, along with TIG welding, provide maximum structural integrity. These ladders can withstand up to 500 pounds, making them suitable for various users. Consider these types of dock ladders for safety on your marina: 

Straight Dock Ladders

The straight dock ladder series is ideal for seawalls and stationary docks with fluctuating water lines. These ladders make climbing in and out of the water a breeze. With ladder steps measuring 12″ apart and 2″ rungs, they offer secure and comfortable footing. The handrail width of 14″ from the edge of the dock ensures additional stability.

Lift Dock Ladders

If you prefer a ladder that can be stored and secured out of the water, our lift dock ladders are an excellent choice. These ladders feature the same great design as the stationary dock ladders but can be easily lifted and secured at a 90° angle using a quick-release pin. This functionality is perfect for keeping the ladder out of the way when not in use.

Floating Dock Lift Ladders (Short Base)

For floating docks, we offer lift ladders with a short base. These ladders can be stored and secured out of the water, just like the lift dock ladders. By extending the life of the ladder and eliminating marine growth, these ladders ensure long-term durability and functionality.

Finger Pier Straight Dock Ladders

Designed specifically for finger piers, these straight dock ladders provide easy access and can be stored and secured out of the water when not in use. They offer the same 12″ apart ladder steps and 2″ rungs, ensuring safe and comfortable climbing.

Finger Pier Lift Dock Ladders

Similar to the finger pier straight dock ladders, the lift dock ladder version is retractable and allows for convenient storage when not needed. The fixed portion extends only 14 1/2 inches down from the top of the dock.

Finger Pier Floating Dock Lift Ladders (Short Base)

These retractable ladders for floating docks offer the same functionality as the finger pier lift dock ladders but with a short base. By pulling up the lower section above the water line, you can prevent marine growth and extend the ladder’s lifespan.

Swing Dock Ladders

The swing dock ladders provide the same features as the stationary dock ladders but offer the convenience of being stored and secured out of the water. With a quick-release pin, you can easily swing the ladder up and away when not in use.
