15 Reasons why you should choose Candock
Candock is the only company that offers 20 years warranty for its basic products. No other company offers a warranty of 20 years, not even 5 years for all defects in material and workmanship !
- Candock products are manufactured according to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.
- Candock has a large distribution network.
- Candock has 40 years of experience in the plastic industry.
Candock products, from raw materials to manufacture, are produced in Canada. Candock products are manufactured according to the strictest industry standards (ISO 9001:2000, 14001:2004). Every product manufactured in Canada complies not only with the laws of the country itself but also with U.S. laws. What does this mean? Double protection for our customers. Insist on asking our competitors about the origin of their products (all countries do not manufacture under the same standards).
Candock floating docks can even be installed when it comes to open seas, which makes them ideal for Greece!
Candock floating docks have a life span of 50+ years.
With the Candock system, the concept “maintenance-free” means ZERO maintenance – no more, no less. No more lost time, no more expense, and no more work to be done on a conventional wooden or metal dock year after year.
Candock is the only company that guarantees that the polyethylene used is primary (not recycled). The difference between primary and recycled polyethylene is very important: during the recycling process, polyethylene is subject to high temperatures so as to liquefy and then it is subject to high pressure so as to obtain the desired shape. The repeated exposure of plastic at high temperatures and pressures results in alteration of its molecular structure and its attenuation properties. The more times the material is recycled, the more its quality degrades. Primary polyethylene (HDPE) has been proven to be by far superior in terms of quality, efficiency and durability.
Candock connecting pin is the only one that has the shape of a screw (unique patent) and when combined to the sliding nut, they both result to a very strong and high quality assembling. What does this mean? Unparalleled resistance to all possible strains that can be imposed on a floating dock. The other companies have connecting pins that fasten just with a quarter of turn. The connecting pin of Candock not only ensures the exceptional resistance of your dock but also it will keep doing it for a lifetime. The connecting pins of the competition will not withstand the harsh weather conditions, with the danger of the dock’s falling apart and disassembling to be imminent.
The exceptional durability of our products makes them an ideal choice, because during their life span, you would have bought 2-3 aluminium, steel or wooden docks. Aluminium requires a lot of energy for its production and wood is a resource that requires many years to regenerate and must be protected every year with highly polluting chemicals. The docks from those materials because of their weight and volume can hardly be moved (if are used for a six months season), change shape and also additional costs are required because they need heavy anchoring. These factors don't even take into account the increasing number of docks that are destroyed and replaced every year by increasingly worse weather conditions. Candock docks resist the most severe weather conditions in the world! You understand what that means?
Candock is the only company that offers a full range of accessories to allow you make any project easy and simple. All accessories are of excellent quality and have a long life span.

Many companies have large floating surfaces and twin cubes. They recommend this option as a cheaper solution and tempt you. But these large floating surfaces and twin cubes increase the rigidity of your dock, which poses great danger. Proper operation requires a dock that will comply with the waves. If your dock does not have this ability, in difficult weather conditions due to the rigidity, the rubber connections will break and consequently the dock will break and be disassembled. At the end of the day, do they really suggest you a cheap solution?
Do not rely on price. Be very careful with low prices, which seem extremely competitive compared to the European or American market. In the plastic industry, you have to be careful when choosing a product in order to reduce cost. The companies reduce the quality of the plastic, or use cheap unqualified labor for production. Serious companies have warranties that support their claims and their quality while cheap low cost products do not. Beware of impersonal e-shops that promise low prices but do not have all the necessary certifications.
Are the other companies able to guarantee the same things, and if so, it would be wise to check if this is true! Shop around and you’ll come around… to Candock!
Candock is not just a one-time expense and long-term investment – it’s an experience!
