Accelerated Bridge Construction with Time-Proven Technology

AlumaBridge Advanced Aluminum Bridge Deck Design – Unmatched Advantages over Concrete Decking and Steel Decking

Superior Long Life and More Strength than FRP Decking

  • Accelerated construction saves significant time and money in both A+B and A+B+C bid evaluations. Our technologies are perfect for many bridge rehabilitation projects because of reduced agency and community costs. There are immediate user benefits for local schools, police departments, fire protection, businesses and commerce.
  • Reduced lifecycle costs from initial installation throughout the life of the bridge:
    • Limited traffic interruption, reduced car and truck user costs, and lower traffic control costs
    • Lower maintenance costs from a skid resistant epoxy and aggregate bonded wearing surface compared to concrete deck repairs or replacement
    • Never needs painting even in the presence of deicing salts (100+ year bridge life without paint), is recyclable (and potentially reusable)
  • Lightweight decreases dead load. Deck panels weigh 18 to 23 pounds per square foot depending upon deck depth and wearing surface thickness. The construction mirrors the strength of monolithic concrete. Aluminum deck is up to 80% lighter than steel with concrete, allowing for widening of functionally obsolete bridges using the existing  substructure. Many bridges not currently rated to carry trucks, buses and some emergency vehicles can be opened to such traffic.
  • “Deployment Ready” prefabricated bridge elements help accelerate bridge rehabilitation or entire bridge replacement.
  • Facilitates rehabilitation versus replacement.
  • Aluminum is the environmentally friendly “green” metal. AlumaBridge decking contains significant recycled content and is easily and profitably recycled - 75 percent of all aluminum extrusions produced since 1888 is still in use!
  • Designed for infinite fatigue life using AASHTO Specifications.

We offer composite or non-composite applications. Panels can be shipped over-the-road for rapid on-site installation.
