FWM ThruFlow Decking

ThruFlow Decking

This unique non-slip polymer panel allows water, debris and sunlight to pass through small holes in your walking surface. The 360° non-slip surface not only prevents you and your guests from slips and falls, but also minimizes the damaging effects of waves and wind. Available in cedar or gray.

Aluminum Decking

Our customized, natural aluminum finish decking is designed with a non-slip surface pattern and a heat sync bottom. The unique design draws heat away from the walking surface and down toward the water, keeping your dock comfortably cool even on the hottest summer days. Also available in gray or brown finish.

“Quality product, I tell everyone they can buy from FWM Docks without regrets. Makes my waterfront look amazing compared to the old wooden dock we used to have.”


Newfound Lake — Bristol, NH

“When searching for a dock, the quality of FWM jumped right out at me. I felt like I had been looking at imitations the whole time and I had finally come across the real deal. I fell in love with the dock, then I fell in love with the company. Everyone there was very helpful.”


Assawompsett Pond — Lakeville, Massachusetts

“I made my own dock a couple of years ago. What a mess! With the new dock we bought from you, it not only looks great but we can add to it and modify it, which is the best part. I recommend FWM Docks to everyone I know. Your docks are top notch and buying your product is the right move if you care about your waterfront, boat and family.”


Little Island Pond — Pelham, New Hampshire

Dock Innovators Since 1975

For nearly 50 years, family-owned FWM Inc. has been developing and fabricating cutting-edge aluminum solutions for a range of applications. Today, we are a nationally recognized producer of modular aluminum and plastic dock solutions, and the Northeast’s premier distributor of the all-season, polyethylene EZ Dock system.

Our industry-leading Aluminum Floating Docks are easy to install, extraordinarily durable, and practically maintenance free. They feature a lightweight, modular frame design that makes it easy for you to create your own custom dock in any layout or configuration you choose. We are proud to offer our customers a full spectrum of options as we work with them to build the safe, beautiful, long-lasting dock system of their dreams.


Does the FWM decking get hot?

We have a list of criteria that each decking surface must meet before we think about using it on our docks. The temperature on a hot summer day is critical. All of our decking options will heat up about as much as a regular wooden dock plank.

Can I Install a FWM Dock on my Own?

Installing your new dock system from FWM is relatively easy. It does require a bit of mechanical ability, but if you have a friend and can lift 50 lbs. it can usually be completed within a few hours. You can always reach out to your dock specialist for tips on installing your particular layout or check out our owners manual for reference.

How do I order replacement parts?

You can call our parts department directly or visit our online store.

Are FWM Docks saltwater safe?

FWM Docks are saltwater safe. Over time, aluminum will naturally oxidize. This actually provides our dock frames with a layer of oxidation protecting them from the saltwater.

Does FWM Docks ship nationally? How does the process work?

FWM works with multiple shipping companies and brokers to provide you with the lowest possible freight charges. Some customers have access to a loading dock where we can ship everything on one skid. Others require a residential delivery with a two-man lift gate dropoff. Our FWM Docks are located all over the country and we have developed creative, cost-effective ways to make every dropoff seamless for you.

We’ve Got You Covered

Our durable, long-lasting dock systems are designed to provide many, many years of dependable service and enjoyment with minimal maintenance. They are crafted from the highest-quality materials and components, and we proudly stand behind all of our products.
