When choosing one of our timber bridges you can be comfortable in the knowledge that you have helped both the local people where the timber has been sourced and society at large.
Timber, as a structural material, dates back many centuries and there are many advantages in using for bridge construction. Well managed forests in today’s world make timber a resource which is highly sustainable, environmentally friendly and 100% recyclable. Beaver Bridges fully support economically viable forest management and all our timber bridge structures come with FSC Certification.
Our skilled engineers and craftsmen have installed hundreds of timber structures nationwide. For all timber structures hard or softwood, up to 10m, we can offer a choice of styles to suit any given application and will be pleased to help you select the most appropriate for your location. Timber by itself is quite strong and at the same time lightweight material. Such features are desirable in bridge construction. Compared to other materials, wood can be more economical. Lower construction cost may be achieved with timber structures.
Modern day techniques affect the durability and can extend the lifespan considerably, depending on the environment and usage, requiring less maintenance than a painted finish.
Timbers can be used for standard beam, arch, truss, dowel laminate, glue laminate and with cable stayed bridges.
Our timber bridge range can be delivered to site in one piece ready to be lifted straight into place (ideal for time restrictions) or it can be delivered in kit form, allowing for easier access in remote locations or sites with restricted access.
All our bridges are designed and certified to the latest Euro-code specifications so you can be sure if you order a Beaver Bridge that it will meet your requirements.
