Temporary Pedestrian Bridges
Fitchsburg, Massachusetts Temporary Pedestrian Bridge
Liberty bridge's temporary pedestrian bridges have the cleanest lines, sharpest curves and smoothest surfaces available through the use of extrusion technology, AISC certified welders, and 25 years experience in the fabrication industry. This technology allows us to offer railing options unique to the prefab temporary pedestrian bridge industry. From our simple horizontal rail to our intricate RM-861 vertical picket railing and plasma cut railing systems, we offer you a wide variety of design options which will require little to no maintenance throughout the life of your temporary truss bridges. Our truss temporary bridges and beam temporary bridges are designed to meet OSHA standards as well as AASHTO guides specifications for prefabricated aluminum bridges and temporary pedestrian bridges.
With over 35 years of experience creating durable, low maintenance, and high performance access structures, we can help envision the possibilities, understand your options and determine the lowest cost solution to your access issues.
Benefits of Aluminum Bridges vs Steel Bridges
Liberty's temporary bridges have high strength to weight ratios. Aluminum is about a third the weight of steel yet it has a higher load bearing capacity than steel when compared pound to pound. This results in a higher performance aluminum bridge with lower transportation and installation costs.
Due to aluminum’s natural protective coating and corrosion resistance, maintenance budgets for the long life span of an prefabricated aluminum bridge are reduced or, in many cases, eliminated. Aluminum naturally produces a protective oxide that coats the exterior and regenerates when scratched. This oxide layer is highly corrosion resistant which minimizes maintenance costs as well as preserves the aesthetically pleasing, rust-free appearance while remaining cool to the touch all year round.
Not only do we use over 80% recycled materials during fabrication, our structures are 100% recyclable. Additionally, aluminum does not require toxic coatings to prevent corroding and flaking. If your project is concerned with minimal carbon imprint or installation footprint.
The fact that we make our temporary pedestrian bridges out of aluminum solves the problems most often encountered when taking on a bridge project such as saltwater exposure and poor site access. Our Prefab Temporary and modular temporary bridges have even been helicoptered or carried into limited access areas.
Since our prefab aluminum temporary bridges will weigh far less than a steel bridge, transportation costs and carbon emissions are minimized. Additionally, smaller equipment, smaller abutments, and less labor are needed to install our bridges. Installation time is often a fraction of other material structures.
Also, with our prefabricated temporary bridges you have the option of renting the bridge on a monthly or yearly basis to help reduce construction cost.
