Acrow® are quick to assemble, modular bridges, made of high-strength steel. They can be installed in a matter of days but serve up to 100 years. A perfect fit for emergency and temporary applications but could also be suitable as a permanent solution, with special treatment. With the span of 11 meters and unlimited length, they can withstand loads of up to 250 tons.
A new bridge in weeks or even days! A bridge around 55 meters long and 7 meters wide takes only 12 days to assemble. That is why Acrow ® is a popular choice during road works, natural disasters and facility failures.
The bridges come in prefabricated parts that are put together as a constructor in a matter of days. They can be rented and moved from site to site in case of emergencies, construction, or for military purposes.
There are six possible widths between about 3 and 11 meters (1-3 road lanes). The length of a single span is up to 100 m, and there is no limit on the length of multi-span bridges – it can be virtually as long as you want.
Acrow® can be a valid permanent solution as its service life is 50-100 years. The steel is protected against corrosion by hot dip galvanizing. Properly implemented, it does not need any special care or maintenance.
Made of high-strength steel, the bridges can withstand the weight of all live loads like people, cars, trucks and railroads up to 250 tons. For example, an 80×4 m Acrow ® bridge can support a weight of a 75-ton moving vehicle.
Bridge modules are made of steel that is 100% reusable. Comparing to their concrete counterparts, CO2 emissions, energy and water consumptions are several times lower.
As opposed to CON/SPAN, Acrow® bridges are made of steel and not concrete, so they are more ecological. Also, they are not applicable for buried solutions. Comparing to other steel structures (UltraCor ®, SuperCor ®), they are faster and easier to assemble as the parts are completely prefabricated. However, they cannot be as wide as other structures, with a maximum width of roughly 11 m.
