The 4' x 12' RS4 dock frame is mainly used with dock designs that wrap a boat lift when a 12' wide slip or well is needed. Boat lifts that have a 120" wide inside width require at least an 11' wide opening, so the 12' wide sections works very well and gives a little bit of wiggle room. The dock frame includes stainless bolt hardware and two dock connection brackets. The connection brackets are very easy to install and once installed the first time, there is no need for tools during seasonal removal and install.
ShoreMaster Infinity RS4 sectional freestanding dock system is a popular choice among many waterfront owners. The sectional light-weight yet rigid all aluminum welded frame construction offers a unique style and design that is not commonly found in most sectional aluminum dock systems.

Each panel is specifically designed to fit the 4' wide RS4 dock frames. The panel uses plastic clips with stainless steel screws to lock into position. You can also choose to provide your own decking.
The RS4 systems give you the option to have post or no post sticking up above the surface of the dock. The majority of our systems are installed utilizing the under dock support and have no posts sticking up above the surface of the dock, but you do have the option.
5 Sided Dock Post - The dock uses a 5 sided aluminum post for the leg and when the T-handle on the leg pocket is tightened, there are 3 points of contact that keep the leg from slipping. We recommend measuring your water depth every 10' that you are going out into the lake. This allows you to better determine the post lengths you will need. We can also assist you in determining leg length for your dock, once these measurements are taken.
