Aluminum Gangways Trusted by the U.S. Coast Guard, State D.O.T's, Ports, Municipalities and others!

commercial gangway ramp

Commercial and Public Use

These all aluminum structures are designed and engineered to current U.B.C. criteria for their use. Marine ramps mount using our exclusive swing-shackle connection which is simple, strong and allows the ramp to pivot up and down and side to side with the motion of the ocean ( 3 axis of movement ).

Our aluminum marine ramps roll on solid UHMW grooved rollers on UHMW guide tracks and use solid stainless steel axles so there is no maintenance. Full width, hinged transitions plates have been Arc-sprayed with Non-Skid coating and have a tapered UHMW drag edge. These ramps have full length side bars spaced to stop a 4" sphere and full length handrails on both sides. Decking options include all aluminum decking, fiberglass grating and others. For rainy or snowy locations we offer either an awning cover ( in a variety of colors ) or a metal roof.

Commercial ramp widths are usually 4' to 6' and lengths vary from 60' to 120'. Other design options include; anodized handrails, painted finishes, Lexan wind screens, golf cart or 4-wheeler traffic and oversize utilities capacity.

ADAAG requirements for accessible ramps to marinas were revised in 2002. Current guidelines generally require an accessible slope for gangways (1:12 maximum) but provide an exception so that gangways do not have to be longer than 80'.
