At Blue Water Systems we specialize in aluminum truss structures for marine projects that span between any combination of land, platform and floats. We build aluminum piers, walkways, ramps, gangways, and wheelchair accessible ramps up to 120' as standard engineered designs. We can design, build and provide engineering services for large or small commercial marine applications and residential waterfront properties such as:

  • Side exiting counterbalanced aluminum ramps for barge terminals.

  • Standard counterbalanced aluminum ramps for rough water applications- when wave heights are extreme, the counterbalanced aluminum ramp is controlled by a stainless steel hydraulic cylinder and has fully adjustable speeds. It can come with a remote-control option for extreme locations.

  • Marinas – ramps, walkways, piers to compliment your plans for commercial marinas, private marinas, industrial marinas, and wharfs.

  • Articulating staircase ramps for Cruise ships with wheelchair accessibility.

  • Aluminum Ramps and Walkways -our design of 60' and 70' aluminum ramps and walkways are commonly used to minimize the number of supports/piles needed and use smoother slopes so they're easier to walk on. These longer ramps prove to be more cost-effective.

  • As with our Floats, a variety of different Decking is available.


We put to work our Canadian Welding Bureau Certified metal shop, machining and marina-building capability to ensure our aluminum docks, piers, floats and other marine structures can be produced to any size and configuration you require. With over 30 years of experience in structural aluminum fabrication and marine construction, Blue Water Systems is the supplier you can trust to produce the right marine system for your needs.

We'd be happy to discuss the technical details of any of our structures in relation to your specific site. Talk to us for more information.
