Shoreline Steps

Perfect for steep shorelines, we can build your choice of wood, steel, or aluminum shoreline steps for easy guest access. The shoreline steps can be built over rip rap or a retaining wall, and we can even add an ADA-compliant ramp.

Knoxville Barge designs and builds custom shoreline steps for marinas and waterfront businesses. Whether it’s a means of egress, a staircase that goes directly into the water, or shoreline steps that lead to a gangway, our team knows how to build a safe, sturdy, and aesthetically pleasing solution for shoreline steps in Knoxville.
