Our deck structure is constructed of marine grade aluminum with embossed composite decking for the walking surface. The shelter is constructed of marine grade tongue and groove aluminum extrusion which provides an air space which will help insulate the structure. The shelter is powder coated with a marine grade off white powder inside and out and then protected with a ceramic coating on the exterior. The five foot tall platform and shelter are supported by a sturdy marine grade anodized aluminum base structure. The tower sits on 8” wide aluminum skids that include towing eyes for dragging on the beach. The LR Tower is accessed by removable low angle stairs with anodized aluminum railings.

The following explains some features of our LR series Watch Tower:

There is excellent ventilation with a 30” wide door and large hatches on the front, side, and rear walls. The front hatch can also doubles as a place to sit on the front deck. The ¼” spacing between the deck boards allows for an updraft plus prevents water and sand accumulation. The composite decking will not rot or get soft and will not require much maintenance.

All railings are constructed of anodized aluminum marine grade schedule 40 pipe which is very corrosion resistant and has a brushed finish. Flag pole holder included.

The windows are impact glass with gray tint in the glass. The 3 main windows are high quality 36” tall aluminum framed with a minimal blind spot in the front corners. The 30” aluminum door has an impact glass window; this includes stainless steel handles, a hole for a deadbolt, and optional exterior aluminum panel to cover the window for security.

Custom modifications are possible as we are very receptive to incorporating your ideas and making changes to fit your needs.

The warranty on the structure and base is 15 years with a 1 year warranty on the powder coating, doors, and windows.

We offer other options for the tower including upper and lower shelving, cabinets, and stair gates to name a few. We can provide an options list with pricing upon request.

The walls of the shelter slope outward at 10 degrees from the floor up, making the shelter more spacious. The shelter has 16 square feet of floor space. The shelter comes standard with a counter along the front window. Four stainless steel lifting eyes at roof make it easily picked up by a crane.

A two piece interlocking roof system with 3” of insulation skinned with white aluminum panels and finished with a white fascia. The roof slopes back at 3 degrees to allow for water runoff.

The three shutters are made using aluminum square tube and skinned over with aluminum sheet then powder coated, they are not heavy but strong. The shutters are supported by anodized aluminum supports to the railing and secured by pins that are easily operated by one person. The shutters are easily secured from the interior using pull pins when the tower is closed down.

We use all stainless steel hardware, fasteners, hinges, and latches. We understand the harsh marine environment and source the best hardware available.

The price does not include delivery to your location, or the crane or large forklift is required to affix the platform and shelter on top of the base structure at a staging area near the towers final destination.
