Decking Options
FWM Docks Decking Options
At FWM Docks, we spend a tremendous amount of time testing and analyzing decking products. Our select decking options have been tested by the FWM engineers to give you a range of options for the perfect solution on your waterfront. Our decking products come pre-panelized to allow for easy removal and installation. Each decking panel fits right into your dock frame, providing a clean, flush appearance.
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
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.

About FWM Docks

Built to Last a Lifetime
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.

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

Bob | 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.

Dave | 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.

We’re Here to Help
Here we’ve compiled some of the most frequently asked questions we get from customers. Please contact us if you don’t find the information you’re looking for.
Q: 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.

Q: 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.

Q: 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.

Q: 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.

Q: How do I order replacement parts?

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