Build your own adjustable wooden boardwalk, supported by wood posts, metal pipes or on flotation with Great Northern Docks specialty boardwalk hardware.
Build walkways to get through woodsy and wet terrain. The hardware and plans by Great Northern Docks is ideal for building nature walkways as well as docks. Here are a few examples of boardwalks constructed in the field that rely on the Great Northern Dock hardware.
The 4×4 bracket clamps boardwalk framing to posts, offering infinite height adjustments over changing terrain. Our complete connection system uses joining brackets and reinforcing corner irons for a structurally sound boardwalk. 4×4’s can be driven with spiked ends, and/or rested on the ground with our post feet.
When pipe legs are preferred, use our height adjustable pipe brackets, with a socket diameter that fi ts 1-1/2” galvanized or aluminum pipe
(SCH 40 / SCH 80) and uses double set screws for strength. This size pipe drives well into most soils and gravel. Use our pipe foot to prevent settling in soft soil.
Our highest quality low maintenance decking products, include sunlight pass-through surfaces for minimal impact below. Great Northern Docks has decades of experience working with plastic based decking. We can help guide you into a long lasting trail bridge solution, backed by our proven techniques.
Our hinging hardware and flotation make the ideal building components for portable floating docks and boardwalks. They are made to fit on framing as small as 2×6 so you can keep the weight down for ease of portability.
