Heavy Duty Mount for OUR dock ladders

 There are installations where mounting the footman loops may present a problem or in commercial applications where you want a stronger mount.
Our optional heavy duty dock ladder mounting bracket can be used instead of footman loops. Galvanized steel with heavy steel welded pins will
provide years of use. Camps, commercial docks, etc. will benefit from the stronger mounting bracket. Low profile with rounded design,
helps prevent damage to bare feet. In some applications, it’s easier to mount the heavy duty bracket than footman loops, where you can’t reach
beneath to tighten nuts on bolts. The heavy duty mount is ideal for aluminum docks to help spread the load.

These types of fixed frame ladders were the original pontoon ladders. In some cases, the old way is still the best. Mounted on the front deck of a pontoon, this type of ladder is generally the easiest ladder for bigger people to climb. The young woman to the right could climb any of our pontoon ladders but the strength of this ladder makes it safe for all swimmers. Another benefit is if you have only occasional swimmers, this ladder can do double duty on a dock. pontoon ladder

What you need to know about Dock and Pontoon Ladders
Generally speaking, you will want at least 24” of ladder in the water to make it easy for the swimmer to climb a pontoon or dock ladder. Smaller-younger swimmers require less ladder in the water than larger-older swimmers.

DOCK - Consider the depth of your dock off the top of the lake. Most docks are generally about 18” off the lake.
PONTOONS - Consider the size of your pontoons and the rise of the tubes. Tubes vary from 19” to 25”.

Children and Adults - Children can climb out of the water on a ladder that's barely in the water. Adults, especially older adults with reduced upper body strength, sometimes need more dock or pontoon ladder in the water. Although, I saw an elderly woman climb out of 6’ of water in a swimming pool almost effortlessly. The ladder only had 2 steps (about 24”) in the water. A deeper ladder might have been a bit easier but she had no difficulty with only 24”.

Shallow Water - Buying a longer dock ladder that you need doesn’t usually present a problem. But, in shallow water, too long a dock ladder might hit bottom.
