Float drums are the essential component of your floating dock. These float drums keep the dock floating. Most important is how well these drums perform (see more on the technical and performance specs in the full description below.)

Our float drums come in 19 different sizes from 12″ x 48″ up to 48″ x 120″ with many depth choices depending upon the model you choose.

Drums come in black.

When looking at drum sizes, the first number is the width, the second number is the length, and the third number is the height.

Description

Float Drums by Ace Roto-Mold

Technical Details

Float drums by Ace Roto-Mold offer Uncompromising durability and quality tests that allow for a 15-year warranty with all.  Float drums don’t shatter or crack because the molding process uses virgin grade resin.

Drums utilize foam fill to aid in buoyancy if damaged. The steamed foam creates a tight seal, therefore prevents floats from being waterlogged, causing sinking docks. Outer shell walls get added strength and support from void-free foam that meets or exceeds the standard of 3 lbs per cubic foot.

Ace Roto-Mold floats hold up to many types of abuse because they have a nominal wall thickness of 0.150″ and a minimum thickness of 0.125″.  Drums meet or exceed the US Army Corp of Engineers standards.

Float drum installation and handling

When storing float drums make sure they are upside down and off the ground and plug hole facing down. Also, don’t store with plugs inserted if in hot temperatures or direct sunlight. Especially in cold weather dropping float drums may result in damage. Stacking over ten feet high is not recommended.

Vent plug install

Once you are ready to use the float, you can insert the vent plug however not before. Water may have seeped through the plug hole, therefore draining the floats is very important before installing the plug. It’s always a good idea to use pipe tape or a small bead of silicone on the threads to keep the drum waterproof. Use a 5/16 Allen wrench to install the vent plug once the plug is level with the top of the float you can stop.

Support

Float drums require support on the ends and sides from the dock frame. Every sixteen square feet minimum frame support is needed.

Installation

When it comes time to install float drums they must by lagged or bolted to the frame to handle strong wave action. Four mounting slots must be attached to the frame if they are four feet or less. Four feet or longer should use six mounting slots to connect to the structure. All mounting hardware must be 3/8 inch in diameter. Lag screws or bolts with flat washers are required and should be stainless steel or galvanized.

Floating your dock

Are you ready to put your dock in the water? Remember to lift the dock sections. DON’T slide the sections when putting them in the water. Sliding could wear a hole in the floats. Winter months when severe ice movement happens be sure to remove the dock sections.
