      Product Description

      Our offered Dock Pile Cap is used to top of the Wooden Dock Pile and to protect it from ingress of water and moisture. These caps are manufactured from high quality Cross-linked Polyolefin material or provide a protective barrier between the wood of the piling and the elements of the ocean and weather, meaning that pilings do not have to be replaced as frequently as they may otherwise require. Provided Dock Pile Cap is highly praised for their features like Hot melt adhesive lining provides 100% environmental sealing against weathering, moisture, contamination and adverse environmental conditions according to IP 68, resistance to UV rays and ozone or protects the top of the dock pile from damage caused by freeze and thaw conditions.

      Dock Pile Cap is Heat Shrink Cap, used to cover the top of the Wooden Dock Pile & to protect it from ingress of water / moisture, thereby increasing Dock Pile life. The caps are manufactured from high quality Cross-linked Polyolefin material.

      The Best & Cost-effective Solution for long term maintenance of Dock Pile :
      • Wood shrinks when losing moisture from the cell walls & swells when gaining moisture in the cell walls. This shrinking & swelling can result in warping, splitting, cracking mainly from top surface; which can cause gaps & loosening of Tool Handles. Dock Piles which eliminates such problems & avoids extra cost of Clamps, used to tighten the gaps; thereby avoiding long term maintenance of Dock Piles.
      • Use of Dock Pile typically adds some nominal percentage to the total cost of New Dock Pile replacement. Precaution is always better than cure.
      Features:
      • Hot melt adhesive lining provides 100% environmental sealing against weathering, moisture, contamination and adverse environmental conditions according to IP 68.
      • Resistance to UV rays & Ozone.
      • Versatile and cost effective, as 5 sizes & covers Dock Pile dia. from 140 mm to 460 mm.
      • Service life more than 30 years.
      • Easy installation on concrete, wood, steel or composite poles in minutes.
      Support Isulator, Polymeric Insulators
      Benefits :
      • Once the heat applied, adhesive filled inside the top surface (optional) melts & penetrates into the Dock Pile cracks and cavities, thereby reinforces the top of the Dock Pile.
      • Provides excellent Impact resistance, i.e. when a Dock Pile end is covered and hits on a sharp edge, it would not crack.
      • Prevents birds from perching (woodpecker damage) or nesting on top of round tubular & solid Dock Piles.
      • Protects the top of the Dock Pile from damage caused by freeze and thaw conditions.
      • No maintenance after installation
      • Can also be used on marine pylons to protect piling from internal.

      INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

      Dock Pile supplied by us are in an expanded form. When heated above 1250c they attempt to shrink back to their original dimensions, conforming to the objects they cover. Use a propane (preferred) or butane gas torch. Adjust the torch to obtain a soft blue flame with a yellow tip. Pencil-like blue flames should be avoided. Keep the flame moving continuously to avoid scorching the material.
