Frequently Asked Questions

How much weight can Tommy Docks gangway support?

Tommy Docks gangways have a remarkable capacity of 600 lbs. at 4’ and 8’. However, when the length of the gangway is increased to 12' the capacity is reduced to 400 lbs.

Is the gangway compatible with floating and stationary docks?

The gangway is an all-in-one solution for universal installation. Additional adapters are required for installation on Flexx and Tommy Docks frames (purchased after 4/23). These adapters are sold separately, so make sure you have them on hand before beginning installation. 

What size gangway do I need for my waterfront?

When adding a gangway, it’s important to consider a slope ratio of 3-1 or 4-1. This means for every foot of drop your waterfront has, you should anticipate needing 3’ or 4’ of the gangway. Depending on variables such as water level fluctuation and intended use, it is important to take these into account when deciding which slope ratio is the best for your application. If the water level fluctuation is greater than normal, then a 4-1 ratio might be the best option for your dock or waterfront. If the dock or waterfront is intended for light use, then a 3-1 slope ratio should be sufficient. It is important to carefully consider the conditions of your waterfront or dock before deciding which slope ratio is best.
