Bridges

Van Campen Bayards designs and manufactures aluminum pedestrian and cycle bridges. Loose bridge roads, bridge railings and covering are also among the possibilities. Aluminum is very low maintenance compared to wood and / or steel bridges. This durable lightweight prefabricated bridges also have the advantage that a minimum of foundation is needed, which in turn ensures that the local traffic circulation is minimally obstructed during the work. Also, the life span of aluminum is virtually unlimited. 10-year warranty is the standard for our aluminum products and the life expectancy is 50 years.

  • Van Campen Bayards B.V. is an expert and specialist in the design and manufacture of aluminum bridges and platforms. Regarding bridge roads we limit ourselves to aluminum bicycle bridges and footbridges that can be supplied in any length and width. The composition of road and railing construction consists of extruded aluminum profiles which can be connected to each other in an ingenious way. As a result, bridge roads can be realized in every width.

    The length of a bridge road is also unlimited. However, if an aluminium bridge is longer than, for example, 10 m. van Campen Bayards provides a dilatation with respect to the coefficients of expansion. On our website you can see pictured aluminum bridges 58 m. in length with a 5 m. width. The road sections are delivered fully prefabricated and can be placed directly in the works.

    Processed and untreated aluminum bridge

    If necessary, the prefabricated elements are provided in advance of a wearing course in the colors black / red or other colors. Usually this is done with a double layer granite which is glued to the road of the aluminium brigde with epoxy. An alternative option could be to provide a non-slip layer which is extruded or milled integrally into the surface of the profile.

    The applied durable aluminum need not necessarily be provided with a surface treatment. This depends on the alloy selected. In the offshore industry, for example, untreated (brute) aluminum bridges constructions are used that are resistant to the extreme conditions, including sea water.

    Advantages over wood, plastic, composite or steel bridges

    The modular aluminum bridges have a big advantage compared to wood, plastic, composite, or steel bridges. After all, the freedom of design of the profiles, the chosen design of an architect is always filled in well. Aluminium bridges are very low maintenance. the life of the material also is virtually unlimited. The minimum is guaranteed for 50 years.

    The durable, lightweight aluminum bridges offer turnkey, which means that the connection (if any) abutments in the structure is processed. The big advantage of a prefabricated bridge deck or platform is that it takes place in controlled conditions in our factory. This makes the placement of such a light aluminum bridge a short action whereby the traffic on location is not hindered for a long period of time. Any traffic measures will be limited to a minimum, which reduces the costs.

    Obviously all products meet the requirements, as laid down in the building specific standards and requirements by the client desired, for example, the wheel load / pressure.
