The 4 step Aqua-Stairs® is among the best-selling dock ladders we offer in our standard line-up of sloped ladders. These aluminum dock ladders are commonly used on floating docks and piers. This 4 Step dock Ladder can be used as a dog dock ladder, on swim platforms, or as a dock ladder for easy access to the water. Aqua-Stairs® is the top company for crafting high quality aluminum dock ladders for people. Our marine ladders also make the perfect dock ladders for dogs. Many people choose to buy dock ladders for dogs because your furry friend can easily walk up these dock steps. Given its staircase design, it can even help as a disability ladder for some people with handicap needs. These dock ladders are intended for use where the mounting surface is no more than 24 inches above the water; otherwise, it is likely that this 4 step ladder would be too short to comfortably get out of the water; unless the lake bed is close enough to stand on. Even at 24″, most customers prefer the 5 step dock ladders with more steps under water to make it easier to get out. Included with these 4 step dock ladders are the flip out brackets that allow you to retract the ladder out of the water when not in use, or to keep it algae / barnacle free between uses. Its stair steps are unusually large at 16″ wide and 8″ deep, making it very comfortable to step on. The last step on our 4 step swim ladder is approximately 4 feet below the mounting surface. When mounted correctly, swim and dock ladders do not have to rest upon the lake bed for proper support; however, you can let it rest upon the bottom if desired. This sloped dock / pier / seawall ladder weighs approximately 36 lbs.
