Blocking harmful UV light, and sheltering from wind and rain are just several of the practical benefits of owning a NICCUM Boathouse. NICCUM Boathouses, like all of our dock systems, are manufactured using custom milled, high carbon steel tubing, extra deep custom milled set screws, with all parts professionally welded and “hot dipped galvanized” to provide years of corrosion-free service.
NICCUM Boathouses use all galvanized steel framework for both the primary support arches and vinyl support bridging. By eliminating the use of wood slats for vinyl support bridging, NICCUM Boathouses boast superior strength and a “cleaner” look than manufacturers who combine steel and wood. Because we use only steel bridging, our connecting brackets are custom milled to exact tolerances to provide a tight fit.
