Future Bridge

Technical Information

GRIP Metal™ Bridge utilizes our Hook Technology with Wood Veneer in multiple layered composite as the base material. Alternating these sheets to build a thick foundation for the bridge base which can then be curved into an arch allowing the bridge to cover a gap while sustaining a load.

Spec Sheet

Typically the Aluminum selection of GRIP Metal™ with double sided hooks is utilized, providing a strong and corrosion resistant base. These GRIP Metal™ Aluminum sheets then have wood veneer on either side. This composite is then used in layers to build up to the required thickness for the bridge.

Process Explanation

The GRIP Metal™ sheets and Wood Veneer structure are spun together with a rolling machine into three layers. These layers are then coiled together to form the bridge with a portable roller and clamp. This process is repeated to build up a significant layer that forms the bridge. The edges are held down and supported in order to form the curved shape.
