Aluminum bridge decking technologies

We offer two aluminum bridge decking technologies:

  • Aluminum isotropic deck technology
  • Aluminum orthotropic deck technology

Both have been successfully tried and tested on bridge deck projects for decades. Evaluations funded by the U.S. Federal Highway Administration show that aluminum decking is viable for many bridge applications.

Aluminum in bridges

Complete more projects, at lower cost and in less time – and also minimize traffic disruptions during rehabilitation and repairs.

Aluminum bridge

Aluminum bridge technologies are strong alternatives to traditional steel and concrete constructions because:

  • Aluminum facilitates rehabilitation versus replacement
  • The metal can be easily and profitably recycled
  • Lower maintenance costs lead to lower lifecycle costs
  • Decreased dead load allows old bridges to be widened on existing substructure
  • Time is saved with pre-assembly options for bridge decks or bridge replacement
