Welcome to DockStar Marine Systems, Inc.
Introducing...DockStar's unique, state-of-the-art aluminum marina system. Our novel innovations, patented designs, and engineering meet or exceed State and Federal requirements, providing a stronger, more durable system, that will withstand the harsh marine environment.
Nearly all floating boat docks endure stress 24/7 and are constructed of materials that guarantee early failure. Steel rusts and wood degrades from constant exposure to water, insects and sunlight. Even pressure treated wood, and concrete undergo irreversible degradation, leaching toxins into the ecosystem, leaving an unsafe, and unusable dock system that must be replaced at significant cost for the dock owner.
Corrosion Resistant Barrier
Aluminum is known as the "Metal of the Sea" of the modern age. It is the obvious material of choice, with its excellent corrosion resistance, great strength, high durability, and natural non-toxic properties, offer unmatched longevity. All DockStar mainframe and assembly components are produced using an aluminum extrusion process. As the extruded mainframe and assembly components exit the extrusion process, and the metal comes into contact with an oxidizing medium such as atmospheric oxygen or water, the alumina oxide film forms on any exposed surface. Aluminum owes its excellent corrosion resistance to the presence of this permanent film of naturally occurring oxide that consists of alumina, and the corrosion resistance of aluminum depends upon this natural oxide film. It is this extremely thin but dense film that provides an excellent barrier between the metal and the surrounding marine environment. The alumina oxide film is actually more durable than the aluminum itself, thus protecting the underlying aluminum structure. This protective film is protecting your DockStar Marine System with its own natural, non-toxic, corrosion resistant barrier from the harsh marine environment. The excellent corrosion resistance of aluminum alloys in marine environments greatly reduces maintenance costs, thus the residual value of these DockStar Marine installations are enhanced as a result.
Innovative Design and Engineering
DockStar has numerous proprietary components, including but not limited to, the interlocking mainframe structures, or the interlocking canopy/deck assemblies. This interlocking structural system eliminates movement/squeaking 100%, securing canopy assemblies and/or upper deck assemblies. These engineered interlocking designs are exclusive to DockStar's assembly components, and are by far the strongest and most durable systems on the market. The backbone of our system is the patented 9" mainframe extrusion, that's been designed and engineered for superior strength, incorporating a 7.5" structural I-beam, and a double-hollow rectangle within the mainframe structure. These proprietary designs increase structural integrity and minimize torsional twisting.
Today, aluminum is a big part of the solution, it is recognized as one of the most sustainable construction materials. This element is the second-most abundant metallic element in Earth's crust - some 8 percent of Earth's crust by weight. It is a vital material that keeps the modern world moving. As Americans rely more and more on aluminum, it is increasingly the metal of choice. Not only is it naturally non-toxic, but of the most commonly recycled materials, aluminum is the only material that is infinitely recyclable. Aluminum has a life cycle that few materials can match.
Yes, your DockStar Marine System will be designed and built site-specific for your waterfront project. We are the exclusive manufacturer and contractor located right here in Southern California, contributing to our local economy, creating local jobs, and eliminating costly cross-country transportation. Aluminum's unique combination of eco-friendly, corrosion resistant properties, and high durability, are extremely important to DockStar's business model. Our marina system will benefit people, and the planet, as we are purpose-driven to create a more sustainable society.
