Floating walkways are a preference to a bridge or walkway to cross wetlands and small bodies of water. Floating walkways are designed to meet the needs of residential, municipal and commercial projects.
A pontoon bridge is an artificial structure erected above the water on floating supports. It is used as a passage for people and to transport cargo and equipment. It is situated in places, where conventional structures are unsuitable due to economic reasons or other technical constraints.
The pontoon bridge has high strength characteristics - it can easily withstand significant mechanical and instant loads. It does not interact chemically with water; additionally, it is resistant to other weather-dependant factors. Affordable design does not compromise long lifespan of the structure. Even after years, it retains the aesthetics of its original look. In comparison with traditional construction, depth of the water and soil properties does not play a crucial role.
It is quickly assembled and can be quickly dismantled as well, whether it is necessary.
The pontoon bridge does not require any building permits. Technical design mainly relies on the characteristics of the waterbody, in particular, the dynamics of waterflow. Specialists ensure a possibility to host a passage for watercrafts. It can be assembled individually or with the help of specialists as the necessary project documentation will be provided.
Since the bridge consists of several sections, its installation includes coupling of the modules to each other. Lastly, floating construction is finished with installation of entry gangways and railings in order to provide convenient and safe user experience.
Bridges on ground screws
A bridge on screw piles can be built both for a temporary facility and built for permanent use.
Pile-screw construction has proven itself in the construction of not only residential low-rise buildings or outbuildings. A reliable foundation is formed for the construction of various structures, thanks to the installation technology and design features used. In contrast to the labor-intensive process of builing bridge structures on reinforced concrete driven supports, the installation of crossings on screwed elements significantly saves installation time.
Screw piles have long taken their place of honor in construction, and the construction of bridges, not only pedestrian, temporary, but also railway and auto overpasses, has not become an exception.
As is known, bridges are practically inseparable from complex types of soil, i.e. Mostly bridges are built on flooded or silty areas where any other type of foundation for bridges would be simply irrational. That is why screw piles are chosen as supporting structures for bridges, which can be installed in any type of soil, except for rock.
The pile-screw foundation has a number of important advantages, namely strength, minimal costs, quick installation, and the fact that the foundation can be installed at any time of the year and without waiting for it to shrink. The piles themselves are not very heavy, but at the same time they are able to withstand very serious loads due to the fact that they are firmly fixed in the soil, overcoming hard layers of soil, as well as the depth of freezing.
It often happens that the bridge needs to be installed in a place with elevation changes. The convenience of using screw piles lies in the fact that, if necessary, the length of the pile can be increased. It should also be said that corrosion is not a problem of screw piles, because they are treated with special protective compounds.
It should also be said about temporary bridges that are built, for example, during the construction of a building in order to carry out convenient movement along the bridge. Upon completion of construction, such bridges can be easily dismantled, and piles can be used in the construction of the next facility.
