Precast Concrete Products for Bridges
Whether you are building a completely new bridge or tunnel to span a road, path, or waterway or you are replacing an existing structure that has fallen into disrepair, precast concrete can be incredibly useful. The precast concrete components that you need will vary depending on what kind of bridge you are building. A bridge for vehicle traffic will have stricter qualifications than one for foot traffic for the precast components involved. Some of the most common components for precast bridges include:
- Bridge girders
- Deck slabs
- Double tees
- Retaining walls
Gravity Wall Precast Bridges
If you are using precast concrete for a bridge, it is worth looking into whether or not gravity wall products from Redi-Rock® will work for your bridge structure. Redi-Rock® blocks are made from industrial grade concrete and they come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and colours, so it is easy to find something that meets your specs. Redi-Rock® products are also set up to function well in situations where water is a factor, making them perfect for bridges spanning waterways. Gravity wall Redi-Rock® systems use their own mass and interlocking design to resist any shifting in the structure. Whether you are building a precast concrete foot bridge or a bridge for vehicles to drive across, gravity wall systems can be employed to build a structure efficiently, safely, and affordably.
