With over 20 years experience and a solid reputation for design innovation and excellent workmanship, The Ironworker has specialized in the design and construction of the finest steel tube docks and boathouse floatation systems available today under the name Kemp Docks.

The unique design and structural superiority of a Kemp Docks floating dock system has helped The Ironworker to build on it's reputation of quality, strength and durability.

All of our docks are constructed with two- 24" diameter steel tube sections with a wall thickness of 3/16".  These tubes are tied together with two 6" x 3" rectangular steel tubes and then topped with a steel frame joist system.  The finished steel work is then sandblasted and epoxy coated for maximum longevity. All together the dock skeleton is engineered to withstand ice and wave conditions, and does not need to be removed during the winter months.

Each of the tube sections has chain guide pockets at both the outer and inner ends of the dock to facilitate chain adjustments to the concrete block anchors and to shore. Concrete anchors vary in size from 1.5 tonnes to 3.5 tonnes, depending on application.

Kemp Docks fabricates aluminum ramps to access docks and boathouses. Ramps vary in widths of 4, 5, 6, and 8 feet, and lengths from 8 feet up to 40 feet.

Our ramps can be built to connect directly to the face of your dock or have a nosecone assembly with roller wheels that allow the ramp to rest on the surface of your dock and move with the fluctuating water levels. 

The ramps can also be fabricated with handrails for safety and security made from aluminum square tubing or from a variety of wood materials.

When spanning impassable areas on your property or over small straits between your islands Kemp Docks fabricates custom steel bridges. Bridges can be cladded in lumber of your choice or left as exposed steel that is epoxy coated for longevity.
