Deicing Systems to Protect and Maintain Docks, Marinas, and Permanent Structures

A properly designed and expertly installed system of deicing equipment, such as dock deicers or lake bubblers, is the most effective way to protect your marina’s permanent docks, boats and hoists from ice damage during the winter.

By planning ahead of falling temperatures, you can reduce the potential for structural damage and investment losses.

  • Breaking and heaving of the dock structure
  • Mechanical and structural damage to docked boats

Installing a deicing system for your permanent lake structures and docks will go a long way toward preventing dock damage from ice. Deicing can be accomplished in several ways depending on the unique characteristics of your body of water. 

The two main types of deicers include:

  • Dock mounted deicing units or circulators, also known as Agitator Deicers or Dock Deicers
  • Subsurface aeration systems, also known as Bubble Deicers or Lake Bubblers
