We just installed a new private dock on the Eicher See. A gangway of with a length of 7,00m and 1,00m width lands on the floating part of the dock. The gangway has been extended by 4,50m with floating docks to reach the final platform. This final platform is constituted by one section of 1,50m x 3,00m and one section 2,00m x 3,00m juxtaposed. The transition between this platform and the gangway has been realized with one section of 1,00m x 3,00m and one section of 1,00m x 1,50m. Two corner gussets reinforce the installation.

The installation will be used for fishing but also for bathing. To avoid prevent of invading the bathing scale, we used a special one that is retractable. Indeed, it stays above the water thanks to a floating unit positioned below the bottom step, and goes down into the water with the weight of the user.

Three integrated cleats and fenders has been fastened to the dock in order to moor a boat.

The 1,00m width part of the dock has been secured with railings. The bridge holds railings on both sides which have a double role. In addition to securing the user, they also structure the bridge and increase its rigidity.

The gangway is fixed to the dock and to the shore, and also work has anchoring. Two cables are fastened to the final platform with small brackets. In order to support the weight of the gangway, two additional floating unit of 100L are added below the floating dock, and one below the gangway.
