The Aqua-Stairs® boat dock ladder is a bold new design for a marine ladder that is different from all conventional boat dock ladders. Unlike regular dock, pier, swim platform, seawall or other swimming / boat dock ladders that allow access to and from the water in a vertical fashion, the Aqua-Stairs® boat dock ladder is staircase in design, allowing entry and exit to the water in a stair step fashion. Secondly, conventional boat dock ladders have vertical steps that are typically between 2 and 3 inches in depth where the Aqua-Stairs® boat dock ladder steps are approximately 8 inches deep, allowing much more comfortable footing.
Our Ladders Include:
Conventional ladder steps often mount too close to the structure to allow one to properly place one's feet, with little more than their toes on the ladder rungs. Aqua-Stairs® boat ladder and dock ladder steps are not only much deeper, but are also off-set in an angled fashion from the mounting structure allowing easier foot placement. Each step on our dock and boat ladders are also approximately 16 inches wide and are hemmed at the front providing a smooth edge to prevent cuts. Vertical height between steps is approximately 11-12 inches.
When installed, the Aqua-Stairs® boat dock ladders can be solid mounted by bolting the upper plate directly to the mounting surface or it can be attached via the included hinges, allowing it to flip-up and out of the water to prevent buildup of algae, etc. while not in use. Aqua-Stairs® are available in 3, 4, 5 and 6 step models - all models come with the flip up mounting brackets. There are even models available for use on pontoon boats!
Pets - they can easily get back out of the water without you having to either pick them up or send them back to the shore. No more tracking of dirt off the bank or shoreline when your dog comes up the ladder. In the event you aren't watching your pet, it can just come up on its own.
Elderly and Children - these steps enable our elder citizens and children to get in and out of the water where they were previously unable with conventional boat dock ladders. Some disabled people may be able to use the Aqua-Stairs® boat dock ladder as well.
Any Adult - Why climb out of the water when you can stand and walk up these steps.
This is an all aluminum boat dock ladder. The steps are made of textured plate aluminum to prevent slipping and are rolled at the front providing a smooth edge to prevent cuts. The ladder is hinged at the mounting brackets to allow the Aqua-Stairs boat dock ladder to be easily lifted out of the water for storage. Only 4 bolts are required to attach it to a fixed dock, floating dock, swim platform, seawall, bulkhead, or pier.
