Techstar Bumper Floats 2 x 8 construction are a unique combination of dock bumper and flotation.

Designed to run the length of your dock on both sides, these floats will comfortably float a dock 8 feet wide.

For docks 10 to 12 feet wide we recommend one row of center 12 inch high floats and for docks 14 to 16 feet wide we recommend 2 rows of 12 inch high center floats.

Bumper Floats /Sandstone 


Features and Benefits

  • Dock Bumpers are built in as part of the float.
  • Foam filled with closed cell EPS (expanded polystyrene) for added security.
  • Your wood frame, hardware and decking stay out of the water.
  • Polyethylene is environmentally friendly, as well as gasoline and wildlife resistant.
  • Construction is simple. Build a frame with corner brackets / truss brackets /anchor brackets and attach floats through molded bolt holes.
  • Deck boards can sit flush with the top of the floats for a clean finish.
  • Standard colour is black but Bumper Floats are also available in sandstone at an extra cost.
  • TIP: Each of our Bumper Float models is 4ft long so aim to build the length of your dock in 4ft increments (8ft, 12ft, 16ft, 20ft etc.)
