This Is The Best Product On The Market
Until now, the piling guides used on saltwater docks and floaters were the same ones used on freshwater docks and floaters. The average costs of a pier, pier head, boatlift, gangway and floating dock is $50,000 to $75,000. Yet the piling guides used on them start rusting away almost immediately.
The Alternative is the Mako Piling Guide
- These piling guides are manufactured using all stainless steel construction, down to the fasteners
- UHMW is a polymer that is slick as Teflon and tougher than steel. Don't confuse with HDPE or plastic
- The contact surface, the part of the piling guide that contacts the piling, is 100% UHMW
- The design of these guides virtually eliminates the accummulation of barnacles
Although stainless steel will not rust away like galvanized steel or corrode like aluminum, it will stain in saltwater. So, for aesthetics only, all of our stainless steel MAKO piling guides are sandblasted and coated with 100% stainless steel pigmented polyurethane. If it sounds like we have gone overboard to make sure these piling guides not only outlast, but look better than anything else on the market, we have.
