Beaver Bridges offer design, fabrication and installation of pedestrian bridges, cycle and BHS compliant bridges. In addition, we offer spans for conveyors, goods access and livestock under this category of bridges.
Spans start at 3m for small sliding bridges and ornate timber footbridges and range up to over 60m for some of our larger truss designs. Pedestrian bridges are often also referred to as truss bridges. Pedestrian bridges and truss bridges are not one and the same, however, a truss bridge is constructed with one of the following structures during bridge design and construction; howe, pratt, brown, warren, vierendeel or k-truss.
We believe there is no one type of material that is better than another. Factors such as span, location, access and budget all have a very important part to play when it comes to choosing the best material for bridge design and construction. We work closely with our clients to ensure they receive the best possible solution; whether the bridge is manufactured in steel, timber, GRP/FRP, aluminium or a combination of all materials.
Our pedestrian bridges can be supplied in a wide range of different walkway widths and can be fitted with a variety of different in-fill panels for safety and appearance. Pedestrian access can be provided direct from abutments or form elevated crossings, via staircases or ramps.
We are well practiced in dealing with challenging and limited accessed environments with installation over rail, road, rivers and canals to name a few.
