What is the Ramp to a Dock Called?

September 20, 2022

What is the ramp to a dock called?


1)  Gangways are floating platforms that attach to your dock and either the shore or a ramp that bridges the gap to land.
2) A very marine term, the ramp between a dock and a boat, or a dock and land, is often referred to as a “gangway.” The name implies “fun,” don't you think? Taking a gangway to arrive at your destination between two points sounds much more nautical than a ramp.

3) Aluminum Gangway, also known as ship ladder, boarding ladder, and shore ladder, is the essential auxiliary equipment for connecting ladders to coastal vessels. It is used to provide a safe passage or walkway to and from almost any floating dock, freestanding dock, floating system, or permanent structure.


How wide is a dock walkway?
Main walkways should not be less than 4 feet wide. The minimum width between berthing slips should not be less than 3 feet when used as access to boats. Walkways should be kept free from mud, ice, snow, grease, or any other material or obstruction that could create a slipping or tripping hazard.

We design, produce and deliver modern access gangway systems, which are easy to change according to customer demands. These systems are used to enable personnel and crew safe access to ship and shore. Gangways are designed to follow the ship's movements due to changing tides and changes in the draft during loading and discharge, as well as the ship’s surge, sway and heave motions. The access gangway systems can be fully automatic in standard execution or tailor-made to meet your requirements.
